Phang Nga Bay: Ko Yao Noi

Ko Yao Noi (Small Long Island) is the baby sister of Ko Yao Yai (Big Long Island), both part of the Ko Yao Archipelago in Phang Nga Bay between Phuket and Krabi in southern Thailand.

Last weekend I visited Ko Yao Noi with a friend, staying in a bungalow near the beach. It was a chilled out trip spent mostly lying in a beachside hammock reading and a sunrise wander with my camera along the sands, capturing the stunning scenery right on our doorstep.

Here are a few of my images from that weekend.

    It looks beautiful, and a nice break from looking at the grey skies here in Wales :)

    • Thanks Sas! It IS beautiful and I don’t envy you those grey skies! Something I don’t miss about the UK.

    Wow Lucy! Those are fantastic, love the one of the boat with the red anchor, terrific composition, you really know what you’re doing. I’m hungry, take more food shots! :-)

    • Thanks Dan! It’s not an anchor though, it’s colored cloth tied to the bow to appease sea spirits. I’ll do another food post some time I’m sure!
