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

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

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.
