Lovely sandy beaches, an endless stretch of Andaman Sea and a collection of 70 neighboring islands topped with lush evergreen forest make Koh Lanta in Krabi nothing less than paradise.
The island is the main gateway to the exotic coral reefs and marine life of the Andaman Sea. Diving expeditions, snorkeling and sea kayaking are just some of the options available to you. For diving tours, don’t miss places such as Hin Daeng & Hin Muang, the King Cruiser Wreck, Anemone Reef, Hin Bida, Koh Bida and Koh Ha, which is primarily known for its underwater caves.
Other activities include attending Thai Cooking classes, elephant trekking, fishing trips, as well as eco- tourism tours and guided tours of the mainland. Situated on the eastern coast are beautiful mangrove forests of Tung Yee Peng that you won’t want to miss.
Last but not the least, a visit to the Lanta Old Town is a must. Located on the eastern side of Koh Lanta, this is a small quaint village inhabited by Thai fishing families, Chinese merchants and a community of sea gypsies. You’ll also find a
Buddhist temple, Chinese temple, an art gallery and a selection of restaurants which give it a contemporary feel.
