MEALS [ L ]

Community Connection at Koh Yao Noi
- Full Day
You will be picked up at 08:30. Help spread the benefits of tourism to rural communities. Venture away from Phuket and Krabi and spend a day on a small island, supporting family-run businesses and learning about traditional lifestyles of the people.

Set off after breakfast aboard a join-in public speedboat Cast off and travel away from the busy beaches of the main island and head toward Koh Yao Noi. Unlike Phuket and Krabi, Koh Yao Noi is a sleepy island where the locals rely on fishing, farming and other small businesses for income.

Spend a full day on Koh Yao Noi, meeting with the friendly residents. Walk through a rubber plantation to see how the trees are tapped for sap, a process done entirely by hand. Then head to a small workshop and witness the time-consuming process of batik making.

Around midday, head to a family home where you will enjoy a lunch of home-cooked dishes, and you will also take part in this home cooking experience, learning from this local family. Besides the experience and a delicious meal, this is also a special way to gain insight into the lives of the southern Thai people. 

Spend the rest of the day wandering through rice fields and village laneways, where buffaloes and cows lazily graze. Pay a visit to the local market to see the day’s fresh catch and other items for sale.

Then it is time to say farewell to Koh Yao Noi and return by boat to Phuket. (L)
