Hi everyone, i've just joined this forum, I'm looking for advice. does anyone know a good place to stay on the beach on Koh Yao Noi. and how easy is it to travel around the island, can you hire bikes , are there tuk tuk's, sawngthaew's etc?. I'm 65 years old and am not up to a 5 mile hike anymore mores the pity.
I'm going to Thailand in december and would apreciate any ideas for places to visit in the south, I've been to Koh Chang a couple of times ,a good island if you avoid white sands bay, and i've been to the north, Chiang Mai etc. But i've only been to the south to Krabi once and that was a good while ago.
I dont like places like phuket, pattaya etc. in my opinion you might as well go to Spain or Butlins, sorry, i mustn't rant, I just remember how beautiful Thailand was once.
If anyone has any information I would be very grateful.
Thanks Blackbinki

Doesn't look like there's much choice out there. There's only about 5 reviews on TripAdvisor, have you checked those out yet?

I checked out some blogs for you too:

This guy stayed at "Coconut Corner", that has bungalows beside the beach. It sounds lovely!

Here's some more TP blogs you can read to find info about other hotels around there that might not be listed on TripAdvisor.

Ahhh, seems like a little beauty of a place. You might just find remnants of old Thailand here if you're lucky. The resorts are are already not-so-slowly taking over. I'm sure you miss the good old days there.

Check out this link; accommodation on Koh Yah Noi. Personally I'd check out Sabai Corner, described as the "grandmother of accommodation" I hope that's helpful.
