Ko Siboya is a small island 20 Km south of Krabi in Southern Thailand.

Rural life goes on.

Understand

Ko Siboya (see-boy-ya) is off the regular tourist trail. Other than the island's one resort, you will find only a few local stalls selling household supplies, snacks and petrol as you explore the local culture. Ko Siboya is home to about a 1000 or so residents whose work is mainly in the rubber plantations or fishing. Dirt roads and foot paths connect the 4 or 5 small communities on this 3 x 10 km island. The lack of easy access to the island has limited transportation to either motorcycles or walking. A new community clinic is able to handle minor medical problems.

Ko Siboya escaped the destruction of the crushing tsunami of December 2004, as it was in the lee of Ko Jum, but did have to deal with the high water surge which devastated the island's fishing fleet.

Get in

From Krabi Town there is a songthaew (local bus) twice daily to Laem Hin (11:00am and 3:00pm). The cost is 50 baht. The trip to Laem Hin will take about an hour.

You can arrange the trip yourself of go to the Siboya Guest House across from the GPO. That way someone will pick you up once on the island.

From Laem Hin you take the long-tail public ferry to Laem Soma on Ko Siboya. The cost is 20 baht.

(If you told the people at the office in Krabi... Bow's truck should be there to take you to the Bungalows (30 baht per person). If you didn't inform anyone of your arrival then you'll have to snag a ride on a motor cycle... everyone one the island is very friendly just ask and don't forget to tip!)
