69 Longtail Boats Beached at Maya Bay on Phi Phi Ley, Thailand

The longtail is an iconic way to navigate the rivers, coastline and coves in Thailand. These colorful wooden boats at Maya Bay are called ruea hang yao. They are powered by an old car engine that drives a six foot driveshaft with a propeller at the end capable of swiveling 180 degrees. Initially used by fishermen, today they are usually hired by sightseeing tourists.
