The island of Ko Lanta lies in the tropical waters of the Andaman Sea, off the west coast of Southern Thailand. The island is surrounded by more than twenty kilometres of white sandy beaches and the cool mountainous interior is a maze of small dirt tracks through the unspoilt rainforest and rubber plantations. The spectacular sunsets Ko Lanta is famous for can be enjoyed along the entire west coast.
Less-crowded, commercialised and more relaxed than popular tourist hubs like Phi Phi, Phuket and Koh Samui, Koh Lanta has an untouched beauty which attracts all-fashion of international travelers. Resorts, activities, restaurants, bars, and shops are in plentiful supply for every budget, though the island still maintains a small-town feel. While tourism is growing quickly, Ko Lanta retains its traditional charm with an awareness that the island’s natural beauty needs to be preserved. The twenty thousand residents out-number the tourists at all times on Ko Lanta – even during mid-season it is possible to walk three kilometers down some beaches and pass only a few other visitors.
The Thais’ hospitality and love of children is legendary and you can be assured that your stay will be enjoyable and memorable.
