Where is Ko Yao Yai?
You can find the island Ko Yao Yai in the south of Thailand, in the middle of the Andaman sea between the very busy Phuket and Krabi.
It is a very quiet, almost serene island and excellent for travellers that are looking for that cottage-near-the-beach feeling. Don’t expect a lot of luxurious resorts, villages or restaurants, but you will find the authentic and pristine Thailand.
Ko Yao Yai is surrounded by many small, uninhabited islands with lots of small coves. People make a living on the island by fishing or working on the rubber plantations or rice fields, there is not a lot of tourism.
