Photo Challenge 365 days: #14 Whispers of Waves

We were in Phuket Province to witness the “The Vegetarian Festival.”  The festival is now over so from Phuket, Province we moved to another island. It took us around 40 minutes from Ratsada  Pier to Kho Yao island by a speedboat. While on a short boat trip we saw some shoal of fish and jellyfish on the way. We did not have any problem and, we reached our destination safely.

Where is Kho Yao? In Thai Kho means island and Yao means long. There are two Kho Yao islands.  The two islands are named Yai and Noi which means big and small. Kho Yao is a Thai-Muslim community. Yai is our first stop technically, but we decided to see what’s in Noi first. Smaller but more developed island than Yai. There are only around approximately 5500 people living here.   Accommodation and restaurants are not a problem. Them recreational activities here are also variety from rock climbing, snorkeling, boat trip (island hopping) bird watching hornbill in particular, and of course beautiful beaches.

    • This is indeed a nice place. For me it is expensive trip but for those who came from Europe or US it is cheap because the prices for example is just a few dollars. a meal is a dollar and half. accommodation is 15 dollars. a day
