Island Hopping on Koh Yao Noi

Hi all,

after two nights in the North of Thailand it was finally time to travel towards the coast. We flew from Chiang Mai to Phuket, where we took a local taxi to the pier. We made it just in time for the sunset, and the ferry ride was nothing but stunning.

But first of all here's a map for everyone (including me) to show you where Koh Yao Noi is located:

 
 

It's a breathtaking scenery, unlike anything I had seen before. The landscape is vastly different from the North of Thailand: Dense palm-tree forests growing all the way to the white sand of the beach, the water is warm and crystal blue, the cliffs are steep and rough. Even though there is a lot of tourism, a lot of islands are still mostly unihabited. 

We started the island hopping tour early in the morning the following day. Except another couple and the captain we had the Longtail-boat pretty much for ourself. Since we started quite early we managed to skip the crowds at the most popular spots and our tour guide did a fantastic job showing us the most picturesque spots in the area. He even showed us a few islands that were solely inhabited by monkeys. 

And of course I didn't want to miss the opportunity to fly the drone in this stunning landscape. I don't think I've ever seen water that blue. 

The whole tour took about 6 hours. The rest of the day we spend at the at the hotel beach and pool.
