Ko Yo can be reached by ferry in just a few minutes from Songkhla as well as by road via the Tinsulanonda bridge. Its a pleasant enough place to spend an hour or two in.Have lunch in a seafood restaurant overlooking the water and do some shopping for batik and cotton at reasonable prices.

An island in Songkhla lake. Situation of homes with hand weaving machines. Nice and peaceful place for relaxation and eating. The Southern Thai Cultural Centre is also on this island. It's a "must to visit" place for local and international visitors.

Visit the Beautiful Reclining Buddha just after you enter the island from the south. Stop at the roadside stalls for lots of dried fish, nuts, local delicacies etc.

Ko Yo is an island connected by bridges at its north and south ends. Highlights include quiet shoreline roads on the west coast, a giant reclining Buddha in the south, and the Thaksin Folklore Museum in the north. It's an excellent day trip from Songkhla, best done with your own or hired transport. Extensive exhibits on southern Thai culture and... More

The food was fresh, delicious and affordable. There are a few seafood restaurants which sit on the edge of the island. Choose your pick, most are good.

Ok, there's the bridge, the temple. and the folklore museum....there is little substance to any of them, but if you want the run of the BEST seafood restaurants in the area all set up on platforms where you can watch the sun set over the hills behind the lake, then this place is absolutely amazing, and one of the culinary...

Used to go in the small narrow "pat" just before the bridge, goes round the temple and some houses, then reach the restaurant on the boat (tied) to the shore. Now, no path but road, no boat but stilts. Missed the "kaeng som" However , it is... More

The three main attractions of Yo Island are the Museum of Southern Thai Studies, the abundant seafood restaurants there, and a local market selling all types of clothes and local foods. Go to the museum in the morning, stop for lunch, and do some shopping before you go home. Local transportation (song thaew or pick-ups) are available from Songkhla town... More
