Many new areas have been developed on the islands surrounding Ko Yao Noi and on the northern end of the Island itself. This is one of the most low key and tranquil island destinations in Thailand and now hosts many new climbing areas as well. Located in the southern end of the Phang Nga bay. The beauty surrounding this island is breath taking. However don't expect the ease of Tonsai/Railey. Approaches require motor bike rides through steep jungle roads, hiking and or hiring a boat.The climbing logistics can be difficult to sort out, but you will be rewarded with high quality Titanium bolted routes in a peaceful setting.

For those who have been here, is there an updated guidebook?
For those who haven't, Phi Phi is much better. Don't bother.
