Biking tour around Koh Yao Noi: Koh Yao Noi (Little Long Island) is a sleepy island still enjoying a slow pace of life located in Phang Nga Bay, only 1 hour’s boat ride away from the international resort island of Phuket. The moment you step on to these islands the usual stress and worries of everyday life melts away and the island pace of life gets a hold of you.
While Thailand is a predominantly Buddhist country these islands are mainly populated by peaceful Muslim communities that make a living from fishing, rice farming and rubber tree plantations. The recent arrival of tourism to these islands hasn’t affected the warm welcoming locals.
Our bike tour in Koh Yao Noi will have us cycling through a small market town, rice paddies, past mosques and fishing villages, through areas of natural jungle rich in plant life and fauna. This day trip biking Tour combines small paved island roads with very little traffic as well as some off road dirt tracks through jungle areas and rubber trees. The distance covered is not excessive and anyone with a reasonable level of fitness will be able to enjoy this cycling tour.
Some of the off road sections are hilly and can be a bit challenging but our route can easily be modified to suit the groups biking abilities. Unlike ours, other tours on the mainland, our support vehicle does not join us on Koh Yao Noi. Our mini buses will provide transport from your Phuket hotel to the pier, once we arrive in Koh Yao Noi after a 1 hour scenic boat journey we will be by our self without mini bus/support vehicle for this Bike Adventure Tour. Be prepared for a fun and challenging day.
