It has been more than a week since I came back from Thailand. But I propose to return 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 info, I told about this nice longtail boat trip, in this article:

Koh Yao Noi, a quiet island in Thailand

  1. At breakfast, quiet in front of a bowl of steaming coffee and a tartine with blackberry jam, I wandered 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 is a little my second home, I lived there for 11 years (and in Cambodia) - back in Rennes for a few years !!

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

    I hang some pictures "from here and there" at the restaurant Yum and CaeteraPlace de Bretagne from Saturday, I hope you will love (a photo 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 delighted to have your jam spread out of the bowl of coffee.

    @Xavier: I discovered in my turn with great pleasure your photos, beautiful! I'll go for a walk with Miam to see that ... After eleven years in Thailand and Cambodia, I guess it must be a bit strange to live in Rennes again.
    For Kazanostra, it is "Bab the handyman" that I had met for a paper in OF too, which had made me talked about the site. It's been a while since I wanted to talk about it ... I'm glad people came to see, 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: Oh, the Togians! Good memories ... It's not easy to go, but it's worth it. You will find all of my trip to Sulawesi here:
    • 2007/07 • Sulawesi [Indonesia]
    And photos of the Togian here:
    • Sulawesi • Togian / Bomba

    @Pascal K: In fact no ... These filmed images are shot with my recalcitrant camera, which has a video mode. It was early in the day, 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 he would refuse to work again if I turned it off. Coup de bol, after having made quirks in the early morning, he started walking again, that day, which allowed me to make lots of images!

  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:
    Well, no, the young couple with whom I shared the long-tail like myself did not really want to mingle with the crowd we saw pouring on the pontoon. Neither to spend 200 baht more to have the right to tread the sand of this tiny beach ... We therefore preferred to admire this hotspot of Thai tourism from the open sea! And go picnic on a less crowded beach.
    Otherwise, for the sound, I actually asked the question at the time of editing ... After listening to the soundtrack, I quickly opted for the option "music"! But perhaps I should have left a few seconds, all the same, at the beginning of the film, with the melodious din of the engine to make us realize the charm inherent in long-tail boats ...

  8. Hi Corinne.
    I live in Phang-Nga since 2005, I see that you 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 little word very nice. I realize that I already know your blog, I have traveled several times doing research on Thailand ... and I was caught in the story of your cycling trips on Thai roads. Hat!

  10. Hello Corinne,

    Nice your site, sincerely!
    I wanted to know if you thought that Koh Yao was suitable for a trip of 15 days with a small of 15 months? boat tour etc ... we leave from 16 / 12-02 / 01/2010 and am a bit in prpération ... We will stay on our arrival 3 days in Bangkok, and then go to the islands of the south .. what do you think?

    thank you !!!

  11. @Alexandra: Thank you, glad that my Little Bubbles Elsewhere you like!

    In general, there is no need to travel with little tips in Thailand. Thais love children, it even facilitates contacts and exchanges ... Koh Yao Noi is very peaceful and more authentic than other islands in 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.

    I will be you, I will keep the three days in Bangkok for the end of the trip and I would rather go direct south when arriving. It's always better to enjoy Bangkok at the end of your stay: you get acclimatized and accustomed to Thai life, and it's much more convenient for shopping ...

    Good preparations!
