This was my second time to Ko Yo or Koh Yor depending on which sign you read crossing the bridge... I first visited in 2012 with my Thai partner for 10 days and recently stayed for three weeks. Probably the best way to explore the Island is by bike, it takes about 40 minutes to circumnavigate and the roads are... More

Lovely visit to a large golden reclining Buddha. It is in your left as you cross the bridge and pretty hard to miss! I enjoyed the quiet atmosphere at the Buddha. Felt like a relatively new installation.

I cross Ko Yo Island several times a week for work, and love to see the Songkhla Lake from Tinsulanond Bridge and booths of fresh sea food food and local crafts along the side of the road. I have also enjoyed visiting the museum.

We discovered that small island while we stayed in a house within Songkhla lake. A Homestay on Ko Yo called Chanyam. The friendly owner shows us a lot of things like museum or temple. We enjoiyed this trip with 12 person and had a lot of fun in that house.

Visited the reclining Buddha statue and had some nice street food along the road. We also tried seafood from one of the local restaurant which was really fresh. Price wise, I would say that it is cheaper than most of the tourist spots in Hatyai. Do visit this place as part of your visit to Songkhla town as it is... More

The Institute for Southern Thai Studies is on this island (see my review over there), as is a temple with a huge laying Buddha. You'll see it as you cross the bridge - it's far easier to reach while entering the island - look for the blue sign welcoming you to Wat Phranorn Laemphop. If you're the sort that likes... More

An area famous for its seafood, if you LOVE seafood, a trip here is a MUST. Some restaurants are naturally better then others, but overall all are good here

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. There are lots of prawn farms nearby which have fishing nets dangling in the water. Every now and then they winch up the nets to catch... More
