"Koh Lanta" Ko Lanta Yai by Cathy&Gary

Ko Lanta Yai Travel Guide: 25 reviews and 112 photos

We had set out for a drive from Phuket to Trang and intended to spend a few days away, but Koh Lanta was not in that plan.
Not until Gary saw the turnoff to the pier.
So off we go and we are so glad we did.
Koh Lanta is beautiful.

Koh Lanta is on the west coast of Krabi province and located in the Andaman Sea, it is approximately an hours drive from Krabi Town. The island has fantastic beaches and is much more laid back and relaxed then Krabi or Phuket.
This is the place to go for total peace and quiet!

Of course there are also plenty of activities like elephant trekking, canoeing, caves, diving, fishing etc and many fantastic bars and restaurants.

The island is populated by Thai Chinese, Buddhists, Sea Gypsies and Muslims, so there are always cultural shows, celebrations and festivals happening.

So if you are looking for beautiful clear deserted beaches, friendly locals and not hundreds of tourists then Koh Lanta is the place to be.
