Meet your guide at your hotel in the morning for a short drive to Ao Po Grand Marina, arriving at roughly 9:30 a.m. Enjoy a light canapé breakfast with your small group of no more than 12 participants, and then board a Blu Anda premium catamaran for a smooth ride across Phang Nga Bay to the island of Koh Yao Noi.
Upon arrival at Laem Sai Pier, climb aboard a private bus for an enjoyable drive across the island, where local traditions continue to dictate daily life. Arrive at Suan Chalerm Pragiat Park and mount a bicycle to ride through a pine tree tunnel surrounded by bright green rice fields bordering the sea – an environment you won’t find elsewhere in Thailand.
Stop for a fresh seafood lunch at Pradoo Terminal, and then head to the breezy terrace at Laam Lim Lay restaurant and cabana to take in the view of lush forested islands dotting the Andaman Sea. Head inside for a cooking class featuring Thai desserts, ending your break on a sweet note.
Feeling full and refreshed, jump into a kayak and paddle through a mangrove forest teeming with marine life. Keep your eyes peeled for mudskippers, an amphibious fish that lives on land and in water, and learn about the local art of catching black crabs.
Return to Laem Sai Pier to take the Blu Anda catamaran to nearby Koh Nok island, where you can swim, snorkel, and relax on the beach with the comfort of provided beach shoes, a small towel, and a sarong. Rinse off in freshwater showers located on board the catamaran during your return trip to Phuket, where a driver will meet you to drop you off at your hotel or the airport.
