Reminisent of what Phuket would have been like 30 years ago, the relaxing island of Koh Lanta in southern part of Krabi Province is a great place to unwind by yourself, with family or that special person.

There are two distinct sides of the island. The eastern side of the island is where the old capital of Koh Lanta ‘Old Lanta Town’ is located. On this side of the island you will see how the locals live. The western side is the main tourist side with its long stretches of beaches one after another along the 30km coast line.

The main beaches from North to south include: Klong Dao Beach, Phra Ae Beach or Long Beach then the less developed Klong Khong Beach, Klong Nin Beach. The development then increases as you enter lovely Kantiang Bay. Two smaller bays further south are exquisite and must be seen. They are Nui Bay and Jark Bay also known as Waterfall Bay.

The main entry area to Koh Lanta is from the main city area called Ban Saladan. Hear you will find many water front seafood restaurants, diving operators and locals selling their wares. Batik fashion is also quite popular in the Ban Saladan area.

Getting to Koh Lanta depends on the time of the year. In low season the ferries from Koh Phi Phi do not operate, hence the only way to reach the island is from Krabi Town where a two hour road trip via two car ferries get you there.

My recommendation is to stay along the main beach of Klong Dao Beach as it is closer to the town centre.
