An inspection tour on our Bicycle Tour to Koh Yao Noi – This Phuket tour normally starts with pick up around 7.30am at your hotel here in Phuket Island. You get transferred via air con minivan to the pier at Bang Rong on the east side of Phuket. As I like to ride my bike a few times a week I thought its a good idea to  make my way to the pier on my bike. So we started at 7:15 am  at Kathu and made our way to Bang Rong pier.

The ride took an hour and we arrived before the mini van so had time to relax a bit and have a look around.

At 8.30 the minibus arrived at the pier and the other guests of the tour had to fill out some paperwork while the Bike Staff were unloading the bikes. Bikes are available in all common sizes 13″, 16″, 18″, 19.5″ or 21″. Once all were ready the biked got loaded on a local long tail ferry that connects Koh Yao Yai & Koh Yao Noi with Phuket. The crossing takes about 50-60 minutes depending on weather and tides. After a short stop at Koh Yao Yai we arrived at Koh Yao Noi at 10am.

James, the guide for today gave a quick briefing where we go and explained the bikes to the “inexperienced bikers”.   And our tour around Koh Yao Noi finally started 🙂

The bike tour leads us along empty & quite roads along old style Thai villages. After a short while the guide turned “off-road” into a rubber plantation. After a few hundred meters  we stopped at a Rubber camp to explain how the locals collect the rubber and gave a nice brief intro into rubber farming.

Then we continued our tour through the plantations along the coast line. About 2 km later we were back on the “main” road. Now easy cycling for a while we made it to our first scenic stop. A pier accessible via a local fishing village from where you have a beautiful of Phang Nga Bay. Time to take some pictures and to recharge the batteries with bananas and local Thai snacks.

Back on the main road we left soon again the concrete road to make our way through rice paddies, followed by a stop at a local rice farmer where we got a warm welcome and coconuts fresh from the tree.

Once we left the rice paddies we started our way over to the east side of Koh Yao Noi. The only part of the tour where you have to climb a few hills. Unfortunately I had a flat tire, however James the cycling guide was prepared for a case like this and within minutes my bike was again ready roll.

As lunch time was approaching we made it to the east side of the island. Another stop with excellent view of the Phang Nga Bay towards Krabi Province on the mainland. From here a couple more kilometre and  we arrived at a restaurant that offers beautiful views and great Thai food.

After Lunch and an extra 30 minutes to relax and explore the area we slowly made our way back to the pier to catch the 3pm ferry back to Phuket.

We made it in time to the pier and out bikes got quickly loaded on the long tail boat and we were heading back to Phuket Island. At 16:00 we were back at the pier, where the minivan was already waiting for the guests. Time for us to say good bye and start our way back home to Kathu. After a few minutes the bike tour bus passed us on the way back to the hotels on the west coast of Phuket Island.
