I learned so much about southern Thailand and had a good workout at the same time. Just follow the arrows through many air conditioned rooms filled with well presented exhibits. Walking between them requires you to go outside and view the beautiful area. The grounds have big views and are a delight.

Ko Yo is a great island for seafood restaurants. There is also a great little museum to visit. Take to trip over the bridge if you want some fresh seafood. There are also some great winding sois, with some great little resorts if you want a short stay. The island has some great hidden attractions, just go and explore.

A big reclining/sleeping Buddha statue is in this place. Besides , there is also a small Wat/ temple named Wat Phranon Laem Pho or Phranon Laem Pho temple and a spot where you can get a beautiful scenery.

One of the best places in Thailand that have beautiful landscapes and no pollution. Here there have many Homestay and many restaurants for your fresh seafood for rest and enjoy. The visitors could see many OTOP products on the way . So why not visit our Ko Yo and enjoy.

I took my bicycle for a ride along Ko Yo, very nice, proper road, some little local restaurants all near the lake side. The island is connected with two bridges to south and north. You will need your own transport, motorbike or bicycle will be preferred.

Koh Yo Island attaches two bridges across Songkhla Lake, on highway 408 heading north from Songkhla, Thailand. For more than 10 years friend Graham and I have been riding around Koh Yo Island early on Saturday mornings. With it's tidy, well kept roads, the sweat smell of flowers and trees, friendly dogs, 'clack, clack' of occasional traditional weaving looms, cool... More

Most of the island is rather dull looking, the best area is the northern tip, there are many lake frontage restaurants and this beautiful temple on a mountain top "khao Kut" 7.170756, 100.541091
