    Koh Yao Mountain Bike Adventure: 3 days and 2 nights

    Koh Yao Noi (Little Long Island) and Koh Yao Yai (Big Long Island) are two sleepy islands 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 every day life melt away and the island pace of life gets a hold of you. While Thailand is a predominantly Buddhist country, these islands are 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.

    This bike tour through these islands will have you cycling through a small market town, rice paddies, past mosques and fishing villages, through areas of natural jungle rich in plant life and fauna.

    The Koh Yao Escape by bike tour isn’t all biking, you will also visit the artistic locals who create Batik Paintings and you will have the opportunity to create your own Batik Painting. On the final day of this Cycling tour a boat trip to local islands that rise magnificently from the sea is included.

    Trip profile:

    This bike tour combines small paved island roads with very little traffic with some off road dirt tracks through jungle areas and rubber trees. The distances covered are not excessive and anyone with a reasonable level of fitness will be able to enjoy this tour.

    Some of the off road sections are hilly and can be a bit challenging but these sections are optional. Unlike other tours on the mainland, no support vehicle will accompany you on The Yao Islands. Mini buses will provide transport from your Phuket hotel to the pier, once you arrive in Koh Yao Noi after a 1 hour scenic boat journey your bags will be transferred to your accommodation by local transport.
