Day tour from Phuket to Ko Yao Noi
Discover the tranquil and traditional lifestyle of the island residents
Try making a Thai dessert, go kayaking, and look for fish
It's very well organized, really top notch.
We were each given a care package with a towel, sarong and raincoat that we could use for the day.
We were also loaned wet shoes which is just brilliant for this trip, you can hop on and off the boat, out of the water and on the deck, cycle and walk in complete comfort.
The boat was very comfortable and modern.
There was a constant supply of ice cold refreshments and cooling Wet Towels.
The staff were friendly and attentive.
Koh Yao Noi is beautiful and this tour gives you a very good idea of what it's like to live on the Island.
Our guide explained how the locals farm, garden and we got to try our hand at drawing water from a well and separating rice kernels from husks. A real treat for a city girl
The food was really good and making the Thai dessert was an AMAZING experience and it was DELICIOUS.
The fish farm was remote and an experience in itself. The highlight for me was getting to hold a puffer fish and a hermit crab.
Next we cycled through the neighbourhood and past rice fields where the locals where tending the fields. The views were amazing and the highlight of the tour.
In the afternoon we got on the boat and sailed to a beautiful remote beach where we were the only people on the ireland.
To all our tour guides, thank you for an amazing day!
