Where to Stay
If you want an island experience that avoids commercial development try a homestay on Koh Yao in Phang Nga Bay.
Homestays (or home stays) in Thailand are just what they sound like, staying as a guest in someone’s home~! In most cases, Thailand homestays are in rural areas where guests have opportunities to learn about Thai culture, including local handicrafts production and rural Thai lifestyle. Welcoming Thai families are eager to have foreign visitors stay in their homes as the home stay experience is a cross-cultural experience.
