A bit quiet and empty
Dec 2020
We went to get seafood and walk around the on-water village. Due to the COVID situation, it looks like much is closed and they are suffering. Please go and give them business.

Stunning approach

The village offers a couple of great seafood restaurants that shouldn’t be missed. The ride out, preferably on a scooter is a fun ride. Stop and take photos from the scenic stop as you come into the village.

Rent a scooter and ride it along the winding roads of the island. The end of the road will take you to this stilted fishermen village, where you can enjoy amazing seafood.

Rent a scooter and whiz out to this fishing village.
On an Island where there is not much to visit this colorful village is worth seeing.
Getting there is half the fun.

Best place to visit in Koh Kood
Jan 2019 • Couples
The best place that we have visited in Koh Kood. From the views to the stilted walk boards, from the authentic Thai cuisine to the fresh seafood, Ao Yai is a traveller’s delight. On the way to the fishing village, do not forget to stopover at the Ao Yai viewpoint which gives you the most picturesque view of an authentic fishing village protruding out of the island landmass into the sea. The village is spread over 500 metres and built entirely on stilts. The colourful houses on the blue sea is a visual treat. The locals in the fishing village are very friendly and apart from fishing, their another way of income is food. There are numerous places to eat as soon as you enter the village.

Ancient Fishing Village
Jul 2018 • Friends
Ban Ao Yai is an old fishing village built over the waters of Ao Yai Bay, in the south east of Ko Kut.

Here the people live very much as they have done for generations, with simple houses built on stilts over the water, and with boardwalks connecting to their fishing boats, which are brightly painted in reds, blues, yellows and green.

On the road into Ban Ao Yai there is a hilltop lookout giving you a panoramic view of the bay and the village.

Ban Ao Yai is worth a visit in its own right, but if it is lunchtime there is the added bonus of several seafood restaurants serving the freshly caught fish and seafood.

One of the restaurants, Chonthicha, has a large collection of ancient Chinese pots and ceramics fishermen caught in their nets from sunken Chinese junks which used to trade throughout this area.

Definitely worth a visit.

The view from the guest stop at the top of the hill gives you a good idea of the lay of the land. It makes for a good photo stop in the early evening. One of the cafes, Chonthicha, is at the very far end. It has a very nice location, with excellent bay views off of its deck area. The seafood is really good too. No surprise there.
