“Worthwhile tour of Koh Yao Noi sampling most aspects.”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

We began by longboat to Tha Khao pier. Then by vehicle down the east coast where we saw wire fish traps with the wire netting being made by hand from a roll of wire. A visit to a rubber plantation revealed a Myanmar worker family on site tending the plantation, collecting and rolling the latex. The string of cafes on the scenic east coast are magical and we stopped at one on the beach amid coconut palms. On the way up to the main village of Tha Kai we paused near Rim Taley to see blue swimmer crabs for sale at a fishing settlement and later a monkey used to collect coconuts who had scary teeth.

In Tha Kai is a 7/11 supermarket that is very well air conditioned and a 5 litre bottle of water cost less than a litre at the resort. The southernmost Manoh pier was next after seeing a local catch of long tom fish. The west coast was more mud flat with mangrove forest and houses out on stilts. Lunch at An Pao was the farthest up the west coast we went. Nice outlook of rice paddys with buffalo and a large lizard over a metre long.

Guide's English could have been better. The bike eco your cost less but you'd want to be very fit for it. Also for two to hire a car with driver for the day costs less but English may not be as good and you may need to know what to ask to see. Quad bike hire is less again but will your travel insurance cover it?

“Not bad”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

Not bad value, lunches provided were pretty good. the guide could have been more knowledgeable. You do need a fairly good fitness level for the eco cycle tour, there a quite a few hills around......more up than down !
