Whether you are looking for a beer, some chips or another type of basic needs, there are always places in this paradise island to get you what you need!
Tips and hints around Koh Yao Yai!
If you are looking for some food, hygiene or basic needs you can find it on one of the two Seven Eleven Stores in Koh Yao Yai, but as a Muslim island, beer or another type of drinks might be trickier to find.
Drinks like beer, Gin and others are normally available in most of the restaurants with exception to the typical local restaurants where alcoholic beverages might not be available. Normally the price range goes from 100 - 120 THB. However, you can find drinks at a lower price either in the Family Shop near to Thiwson beach resort or in local market shop ร้าน.Beer ป้าเบียบ. near to Chill Chill restaurant. There you can find everything you might need as it is similar to a seven eleven store but they also sell all types of drinks you might be looking for.
Also at Family Shop and in all seven-eleven stores you are able to find ATM machines in case you are running low on cash. But in case you need to exchange some money make sure to do it in one of the 4 local pharmacies of Koh Yao Yai, they provide the best exchange rate in Koh Yao Yai and also provide all the service you might need in case you are feeling sick.
If you want to try some amazing street local food at very low prices, Don't be ashamed, and when you see food on display outside some local markets or houses spot and ask for the price of what you are willing to try. The main advantage of Koh Yao Yai is that street food is always fresh and from local providers. No chemicals it's all biological food.
