Time to say goodbye to Yao Yai island and the next destination is the nearby neighbor Koh Yao Noi.
This time with the worry in mind about how much would the boat shake during the short trip due to the baby on board, I tranquilize any mothers to be by assuring you it is a soft ride(the taxi until the pier shook more😜), of course that may change during rough weather, be aware of that.
The 10 min (or less) ride cost 50 baht per person. It can be boarded on Chonglad pier, north of the island, you’ll probably need a taxi to get there unless you are staying nearby or dropping your rented vehicle nearby. Boats depart frequently during the day, it is not needed to worry about a schedule.
Arriving in Koh Yao Noi started well by being presented with much lighter taxi fees than Yao Yai.
The view on our way to the hotel also pleased us and our first impression was of a more structured place than Yao Yai.
Our hotel pick was Pasai Cottage, a budget beachfront bungalow with simple bamboo rooms and private cold shower.
Prices were around 600-700 baht at the time we stayed (high season).
Now, it’s time to explore Yao Noi, stay tuned for the upcoming adventures!
