Ao Yai is one of the two main fishing villages on Koh Kood. It’s located in the South-East and was hardly accessible by road until the new concrete road was built in 2009.
The road to Ban Ao Yai leads through impressive ancient rain forest with Ao Yai Viewpoint along the way.
The village consists of authentic wooden fishermen’s houses built on stilts in the water. A wooden pier leads along the houses.
The fleet of Baan Aow Yai supplies many restaurants on Koh Kood with sea food but the freshest sea food can be enjoyed in one of the (basic) restaurants in Ao Yai where people can choose their own fish! It’s a nice day trip and you get to see the local way of life.
