Hi. First time to Thailand and staying around Phuket and hopefully an island. Avoiding parties. What's the best affordable transport to Koh Yao Yai? Nearby and or free activities on the island? Anywhere to explore? Can we snorkel from any of the resorts and has anyone stayed at Santhiya Resort? Thank you.
Hello! I'm actually on Koh Yao Yai. I would recommend to go there by boat from Phuket (Bang Rong Peer near the Airport). You can book it directly there.
On Koh Yao Yai I would definitely give the advice to rent a motorbike due to the really high Taxi costs in comparison to the Tourist-Centers. You can explore this beautyful Island and do also some snorkeling Tours to Phi Phi Island for example. The people here are really friendly, so you can always ask them for some recommendation as well. The locals sometimes doesn't speak english very well, but they are always trying their best.
Enjoy your Trip!
