  • What else ...

    What else ...

    In your free time; luckily you’re on the most gorgeous of islands so there’s always something to see and do. There’s a plethora of ways to explore or relax on the island.

    A drive over the central mountains of the island, through lush rainforest will put you in ‘Old Town’ where the locals and tourist mingle – a perfect spot to catch the sunrise. North is the busy little port of ‘Saladan’ where the majority of the ferries arrive. A narrow street packed with quaint restaurants sitting on stilts over the water awaits you. To the south is Koh Lanta’s national park where you’ll find more pristine beaches, thick rain-forest and groups of cheeky monkeys; so be careful where you leave you bags!

    Day trips on a traditional long-tail boat are a wonderful way to explore surrounding islands with their deserted beaches and underwater caves. If you’re feeling more energetic explore Koh Lanta’s beautiful mangrove forests by kayak; keep an eye out for the swimming monkeys.

    A 1.5 hour ferry from Saladan will place you in Koh Phi Phi – possibly the most beautiful group of islands on the planet; scores of tourist (unfortunately) flock here to swim, dive, hike and sunbath. As darkness creeps in the island comes alive. A thin strip of land connects two island-mountains and is packed with restaurants, bars and hostels. The strip is fringed on both sides with white, sandy beaches where night clubs and fire shows go on until the early morning.

    And how can you come to this part of the world and not take up snorkeling or scuba diving? The tropical, crystal clear waters and its corals, are teeming with the most colourful, wonderful and unique marine life which is why these waters are considered one of the world’s top 10 dive sites.

    If that all sounds too much for you just head to the beach; Koh Lanta is jam-packed with tropical beaches of soft white sands, washed with the bluest of waters and fringed with palm trees. Dotted along the beaches you’ll find ramshackle bars and restaurants with driftwood walls and sandy floors. Chill under their thatched roofs with a fresh coconut and some yummy papaya salad.
