Koh Yao Yai To Koh Yao Noi + Room Tour – Thailand

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!

How To Get To Koh Yao Yai from Phuket + First Views of The Island – Thailand

Time to explore a new Thai island! There we go Koh Yao Yai!
Expect all you need to know about the island soon, starting today let’s see how to get there:

How To Get To Koh Yao Yai from Phuket + First Views of The Island - Thailand

 

How To Get From Phuket To Koh Yao Yai

There’s no airport in Koh Yao Yai, after getting nearby the island the only way to access it is by boat.
The closest point is Phuket (Click here to see how to get to Phuket), we’ll be explaining how to transfer from Phuket to Koh Yao Yai step-by-step.
As you saw on the video there are 2 piers which can be used for this route. One is called Bang Rong Pier located on the northeast of the island and the other one is called Chianwanich located at the southeast of the island.
Phuket is the largest island in Thailand so save about 1 hour to go from your hotel to either of these piers, the best is asking your hotel how long it will take because if you are staying out of the main beaches time may differ. There’s no public transportation to access the piers, scheduling a taxi will be needed.
Bang Rong Pier pier counts with speed boat and private longtail boats only. Chianwanich Pier has speed boats and car ferry for those who can’t/don’t want to ride a speed boat or wishes to bring a car/motorbike together. Speed boat rides take about 40 min, the car ferry and longtail boat take 1 hour.
Here the boat timetable:

Boats from Phuket To Koh Yao Yai

 Speed BoatCar FerryLongtail Boat
Chianwanich Pier
(arrive at Loh Jark Pier)
- 10:00, 17:00 (there are more boats in between this times without accurate schedule)
- 200 baht per person
- 08:30, 10:00, 14:00
(no service on Fridays)
- 140 baht per person, 400 baht with car
X
Bang Rong Pier
(arrive at Klong Hia Pier)
- 07:40, 08:40, 09:15, 09:40, 10:30, 11:30, 12:30, 13:15, 14:30, 15:00, 16:00, 17:00, 17:30
- 300 baht per person
X- private, schedule up to you during day time
- 2000 baht per boat

Another thing to be considered is if your hotel in Koh Yao Yai offers the transfer, contact them beforehand and remember to specify the departure pier.
Is also important to check the location of your hotel because the final stops of the boats depend from where they departed, for example, from Bang Rong Pier pier they stop in Klong Hia Pier(unless you hire a private long tail that will leave you at your hotel) and Chianwanich pier will leave you at Loh Jark Pier in Koh Yao Yai.
As these boats can’t be booked with travel agents or hotels in town, information is scarce and often inaccurate. The only way to buy the tickets is in person at the piers which are located quite far away from the main hotel areas. Yet, there’s always available space in the boats and/or extra boats departing, don’t worry about staying without tickets (unless you’re bringing a car, then calling the pier in advance is advisable, help from a Thai speaker will be needed, phone: (087) 896 0756 or (087) 2720132.

 

We were welcomed by a new shade of blue to our eyes on the island sky, the masterpiece was completed with a touch of swinging coconut trees.
Sand down, sun up, what a wonderful world!💙
