I took my bicycle for a ride along Ko Yo, very nice, proper road, some little local restaurants all near the lake side. The island is connected with two bridges to south and north. You will need your own transport, motorbike or bicycle will be preferred.

Koh Yo Island attaches two bridges across Songkhla Lake, on highway 408 heading north from Songkhla, Thailand. For more than 10 years friend Graham and I have been riding around Koh Yo Island early on Saturday mornings. With it's tidy, well kept roads, the sweat smell of flowers and trees, friendly dogs, 'clack, clack' of occasional traditional weaving looms, cool... More

Nice small islet. Good relax spot. Short drive there was worth it. Romantic for dates in the evening. Nice view.

Most of the island is rather dull looking, the best area is the northern tip, there are many lake frontage restaurants and this beautiful temple on a mountain top "khao Kut" 7.170756, 100.541091

Quite weird & unique views of the fishing sites in the lake. Beautiful place for a sunset. We were lucky to spot some cool birds during our walk along the beach.

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.
