Are you looking for the best ways of how to get from Phuket to Koh Yao Noi? Then you came to the right place!
If you’re planning a trip to the stunning and almost untouched Koh Yao islands, you’ve got something truly special to look forward to.
Along with Koh Yao Yai, nearby Koh Yao Noi (or Little Long Island) is one of the most well-known out of the archipelago’s 44-strong collection of islands.
It’s a sanctuary of natural wonders, a snorkeling dream off the spectacular Koh Yao Noi beaches, and the perfect place to relax and enjoy a taste of Thailand
How Far is Koh Yao Noi from Phuket?
Phuket is approximately 24 km away from Koh Yao Noi. This means that a journey to the island can take anything from 30 minutes to 2 hours, depending on your mode of transport.
Since Koh Yao Noi doesn’t have an airport of its own, you cannot get there by air. Worry not, this amazing island is not too far away from Phuket and it is easily reachable by other means of transport.
To make your choices easier, we have compiled this little guide.
