Travelfish says:

In the island’s interior you’ll find rubber and cashew nut plantations, rice fields, goat-herding farmers and grazing water buffaloes.

Along the east coast the single-lane road takes you along Yao Noi’s main beaches with spectacular views out across Phang Nga bay. Look for mud skippers and crabs in the mudflats of the stilted west-coast fishing village at Tha Tondo or enjoy a bird’s eye Phang Nga bay panorama from the viewpoint near Tha Khao pier.

Hire a guide to learn more about the local way of life and find lesser-known trails and beaches. For a guided tour on two wheels, Amazing Bike Tours, based in Phuket, offers one-day trips around Ko Yao Noi, which will lead you through the island’s villages and idyllic rural back roads.
