THA KAO BAY VIEW , KOH YAO NOI
“Stay here for the beatiful view, leave elsewhere to espace the insects!”
Despite a rather steep climb to bed this has got to be one of the most amazing bungalow operations on this island. Each ‘room’ clings to a mountainside and has unexplainable views out over Phang Nga Bay and Krabi. Picture yourself sitting on your balcony, either in your hammock or in one of the garden chairs, at 6pm, cold beer in hand, warm evening breezes and not a sound as you watch the light the setting sun casts over the limestone carst formations in front of you.
Perfect location, quiet because a bit away from all the other accommodations (but still walkable/cyclable distance) and on a little hill to catch the wind & the view Gorgeous view on the bay and rising sun directly from my bed.
Tha Khao Bay View offers two double bungalows and seven single. All have mosquito net, fan, shower and toilet. Prices vary according to season.

RESTAURANT @THA KAO BAY VIEW
Great view on the bay from the restaurant, where delicious thai food
is served for a reasonable price
The restaurant serves fantastic food and is a great place to be as the sun goes down, where you can see the limestone karstsand ocean change colour. Simply gorgeous! If you are a couple, I would recommend paying more for more space inside thebungalow and for relaxing on the balcony. It's definitely worth it.
Koh Yao Noi is one of the best places for bird watching, There are many mangrove forests around Koh Yao Noi . And this attracts Mangrove Whistler, White-bellied Sea-eagles, Mangrove Pittas, Flyeater, Ruddy Kingfishers Brown-winged Kingfishers and other birds.
Oriental Pied Hornbills very easy to see in Koh Yao. As informed by local friends that Hornbills live in pair. That's why you seldomly see one Hornbill alone. If so, it is a sad Hornbill. They are faithful and romantic. They only "marry" one partner in a lifetime. If the other half die, they will never "marry" again. So the travel alone Hornbill is the lonely widowed bird.
Neither of the islands have banking facilities, but Internet service, restaurants and some shops can be found on Yao Noi,including a brand new 7-Eleven with a very powerful air-con, a good chance to cool down and get some sugary drinks and ice creams. So if you plan to stay over, remember to withdraw some cash money before you go, even though there are few opportunities to spend it! Note that the islanders are keen to preserve their traditional ways, so it's important to respect the local culture by dressing modestly and refraining from drinking alcohol outside of the restaurants/resorts catering to visitors.
