A dispatch from paradise from Norman and Premchit, this time telling of Phang-Nga Bay’s many beguiling sights.
We just found out our good friend Alex Scheible is now heading up Koyao Island Resort (www.koyao.com) on Koh Yao Noi (Little Noi Island) in Phang-Nga Bay, east of Phuket. Like us, Alex gave up Bangkok for paradise — perhaps even more of a paradise than we have!
Koh Yao Noi is a 30- to 60-minute boat ride from Phuket (depending on type of boat). Even on an overcast, wet day, you can glimpse the magical islands of Phang-Nga Bay, made famous by the iconic image of James Bond Island. The boat ride tempts one to travel even farther, into the heart of the bay and be dwarfed by the karst (limestone) cliff formations seeming to burst straight from the water and reaching hundreds of metres high.
My last visit was on a quite grey, overcast day, with only a glimpse of sun here and there. But even on grey days it’s magical. On sunny days it’s magical in a different way, though perhaps tempting one’s curiosity a little less as everything is on full-colour display. But when the weather is on the dreary side, only hints of the magical islands poke out between the haze, beckoning to you.
