It's been more than a week since I came back from Thailand. But I suggest you to go back to in the fabulous Phang Nga Bay, with this little video. A ride in long-tail boat from island to island, how about it?

For more information, I had told this nice trip in long-tail boat, in this article :

Koh Yao Noi, a quiet island in Thailand

  1. At breakfast, quietly in front of a steaming bowl of coffee and a slice of blackberry jam, I strolled from island to island and I loved it. It's peaceful, out of time. Thank you.

  2. Hello Corinne,

    a friend has just let me know your blog.

    First of all, thank you for sharing your travel experiences in Thailand, wonderful country and people. It's a bit like my second home, I lived there for 11 years (as well as in Cambodia) - back in Rennes for a few years!

    And also thank you for the article on our site [kazanostra.fr] in Ouest-France, a boost is really appreciated, the netizens came to the rendezvous :))

    I hang a few "here and there" pictures in the restaurant Yum and CaeteraI hope you'll like it (a picture of Chiang Mai).

    I will come back to your blog to follow your new adventures ...

    Best regards,

  3. @Nono: Definitely, you become a faithful ...
    I'm so glad I took your jam toast beyond the coffee bowl.

    @Xavier: I am discovering with great pleasure your pictures, superb! I'll go to Miam to see it... After eleven years in Thailand and Cambodia, I imagine that it must be a bit strange to live in Rennes again.
    For Kazanostra, it was "Bab the handywoman" that I met for a paper in OF too, who made me talk about the site. I've been wanting to talk about it for a while... I'm glad that people came to see it, Kazanostra really deserves it.

  4. Hi Corinne,

    Thank you very much for putting pictures of the Togian Islands on your blog...

    I was there two years ago... my god...

    In short, the word paradise is perfect.

    kisses and bravo


  5. @Simon: Ah, the Togians! What good memories... It's not easy to go there, but it's worth it. You can find my whole trip to Sulawesi here:

    And photos of the Togian here:

    @Pascal K: Actually no... These filmed images are shot with my recalcitrant camera, which has a video mode. It was at the beginning of my stay, when he still deigned to walk from time to time. I left it on "On" for the duration of this walk in Phang Nga Bay, fearing that it would refuse to work again if I turned it off. Luckily, after having made me capricious at the beginning of the morning, it started to work again, that day, which allowed me to take a lot of pictures!

  6. Ah, ah, I see you're past JB island?
    Have you finally visited this high place of Thai tourism?
    The funny thing about watching your video is that it didn't remind me at all of my long-tail rides in this bay. On reflection, I realized what was missing: The sweet melodious sound of the engine 😆

  7. @Alimata:
    Eh eh, no, the young couple with whom I was sharing the long-tail as well as myself did not feel like mingling with the crowd that we saw pouring onto the pontoon. Nor to spend 200 bahts more to have the right to walk on the sand of this tiny beach... So we preferred to admire this high place of Thai tourism from the sea! And to go picnic on a less frequented beach.
    Otherwise, for the sound, I indeed asked myself the question at the time of the assembly... After listening to the soundtrack, I quickly opted for the "music" option! But maybe I should have left a few seconds at the beginning of the film, with the melodious noise of the engine, so that we could realize the charm inherent to long-tail boats...

  8. Hi Corinne.
    I live in Phang-Nga since 2005, I see that you have visited the bay of the same name. By the way, your photos of Halong Bay are superb as well as the other photos of course.
    Good continuation.

  9. @Eric: Hello, and thank you for this very nice note. I realize that I already know your blog, I've read it several times while doing research on Thailand... and I was caught by the story of your cycling trips on the Thai roads. Hats off to you!

  10. Hello Corinne,

    Nice your site, sincerely!
    I wanted to know if you thought that koh Yao was adapted for a 15 days trip with a 15 months old child? boat tour etc... we are leaving from 16/12-02/01/2010 and I am a little bit in prpération... We will stay at our arrival 3 days in Bangkok, and then we will go to the southern islands... what do you think?

    thank you !!!

  11. @Alexandra: Thank you, I'm glad you like my Little Bubbles from Elsewhere!!!

    Generally speaking, there is no problem to travel with little ones in Thailand. Thais love children, it even facilitates contacts and exchanges... Koh Yao Noi is very peaceful and more authentic than other islands of the Phang Nga bay.

    With a 15-month-old, I would recommend heading to Lom Lae Beach and the resort of the same name. Large clean and comfortable bungalows, pretty beach with quiet water, large well-kept garden, great reception. The resort will organize trips and boat tours that you want to do.

    If I were you, I would keep the three days in Bangkok for the end of the trip and I would go straight to the south when I arrive. It's always better to enjoy Bangkok at the end of your stay: you've "acclimatized" and got used to the Thai way of life, and it's much more convenient for shopping...

    Good preparations!
