I went to Ko Yo with some friends and we had a lovely seafood meal in one of the shack type restaurants which are on stilts in the lake accessed by rickety bamboo bridges.

Had lunch at a restaurant in this island upon reaching Songkhla. Price is cheap and food is tasty. Great view facing the lake of Songkhla.

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.

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.
