Behold, One Of The Last Unspoiled Islands In The World

Some real places look so unreal. That's certainly the case with Koh Yao Noi, one of the few undeveloped islands still left in Thailand. Such spots pose a problem: do you visit, leaving the setting a little more spoilt than when you came, or never step foot there out of conscientiousness?

Luckily, there is a third option. Filmed by director Phillip Bloom while on vacation, the five-and-a-half-minute video below meanders through Koh Yao Noi, with shots of unbroken beaches, long solitary roads, and kids having a ball with Bloom's flying camera.

Bloom previously wound his way through Chicago's canal system and Lake Michigan in a time-lapse video that also went viral. As he explains on his blog, he shot the Thailand footage while on vacation, and we couldn't be more thankful/envious.
