Weather of Koh Yao Noi
Koh Yao Weather and Climate
The secluded island of Koh Yao Noi is yet conveniently located only a one hour boat trip away from the very busy island of Phuket with its international airport, numerous shopping centers, world class hospitals and leisure centers such as golf courses, marinas, and tourist attractions.

Koh Yao Noi and Koh Yao Yai are a pair of large islands in the middle of Phang Nga Bay, equidistant to Phuket and the Krabi mainland. According to local legend the strait between the two islands was created when a very angry Naga (Sea Dragon) crashed through on his way to Krabi to see his fiancé being married to someone else.

You can get to the island from the airport, by a taxi which will take you to the pier in 25 minutes. Long-tail boat ferries make daily trips to Yao Noi from Bang Rong Pier on the east coast of Phuket. The fare is 80 Baht for the one-hour journey, with daily departures from Phuket at 9.30 am, 12 noon and 5 pm. The boat will make a short stop on Koh Yao Yai, then cross to Koh Yao Noi, only 8 minutes away. Long-tail boats can also be hired at Ao Po pier for charter to Koh Yao.


The island of Koh Yao Noi is a very natural, quiet and easy place to live. It has around 4,000 inhabitants and is one of the largest in an archipelago of 44 islands. It is around 10 x 12km and has one concrete road covering most of the island. The island sits at Latitude 8 degrees north and enjoys a tropical climate characterized by year round high temperatures and fairly little rainfall due to the position. During the months of May-July and again in September-October Monsoon winds refresh the island with evening gusts that see the palm trees swaying and the odd downpour is possible.

The main sources of income on the island is from rubber, sea food, rice, palm oil and coconuts. Sea farms (holding bay for live fish & lobsters) are also popular and a common sight around the island.
Koh Yao Backpackers Hostel Seasons: When to Visit
Thailand's weather is influenced by monsoons that sweep over the country creating three seasons in the north and central areas and two in the south.

Differences in temperature and rainfall occur during both seasons on the east and west coasts of Phuket (Koh Yao is on the east side).

Rainy Season
In the Rainy Season, torrential rain tends to fall in short bursts, usually lasting only a couple of hours each day. Most rain falls between June and November. Even though this weather can be unpleasant at times, the sun will still shine and the quiet and clean beaches will make for a memorable stay.

Hot and Dry Season
The Hot and Dry Season is relatively rain-free between January and April. It is the main Backpackers Hostel seasin for Koh Yao and the surrounding destinations of Phuket and Krabi.
