BECOME A FISHERMAN IN THE BAY OF PHANG-NGA

Koh Yao Noi is an island situated in the Bay of Phang-Nga, in Southern Thailand, between Phuket Island and Krabi. The bay’s landscapes are spectacular, with hundreds of mountainous islands and islets or karst formations covered with dense tropical vegetation. The main activity of the island’s inhabitants is fishery, traditionally performed. Many years ago, the community struggled to obtain a moratorium on industrial fishing in the whole bay, which was approved by the Thai government.

 

The fishermen who welcome you, share their daily life with the visitors, host you in their house and bring you in the bay during their fishing activities. In other words, you will live a unique experience of cohabitation with local families, humble but happy to live in a protected environment, and according to their traditional way of life.

 

You will wake up very early, like your hosts, and will go to the sea to fish. You will eat delicious fish and seafood. You will live simply, without luxury or comfort, but at a pleasant and slow pace. You will stay in the house of a local family and will discover the natural beauty of the island and the beautiful bay of Phang-Nga.
