Undoubtedly one of the most beautiful experiences of Thailand is to escape to one of the smaller islands that offer some of the best and most unspoilt beaches, as well as clear waters and a laid back pace of life. Despite being a little more off the beaten track, in Koh Yao Yai, standards are in no way compromised, offering stunning views and a relaxed and peaceful environment.
Best time to visit Koh Yao Yai & Koh Yao Noi
Thailand’s peak season is between November and February when the climate is drier and slightly cooler, while the hottest period is April to May. May to October tends to have higher rainfall but there should still be plenty of sunshine and this is the time to benefit from the greatest value and less crowded beaches.
