Ko Yo information

A popular day trip from Songkhla is this island in the middle of Thale Sap is actually connected to the mainland by bridges and is famous for its cotton-weaving industry. There’s a roadside market selling cloth and ready-made clothes at excellent prices.

If you visit Ko Yo, don’t miss Wat Phrahorn Laemphor , with its giant reclining Buddha, and check out the Thaksin Folklore Museum , which actively aims to promote and preserve the culture of the region, and is a must-see. The pavilions here are reproductions of southern Thai–style houses and contain folk art, handicrafts and traditional household implements.
