Popular Destinations near Koh Lanta
Favourite Cities and Hotels in Thailand

The province of Krabi in south Thailand has tremendous allure. A veritable tropical oasis, destinations in the Andaman Sea province include Ko Phi Phi Leh, backdrop for the film The Beach, the prehistoric cave systems of Tham Chao Le and Tham Phi Hua To, and Than Bokkhorani National Park.

Of all the places of interest in Krabi however, Koh Lanta is one of the most popular, especially in recent years. Affordable, paradisal and not yet overrun with real estate and resort development, the district is rife with natural beauty and old village charm. Koh Lanta National Park is a must-see attraction, with several islands that contain a brilliant array of biodiversity. The caves of Khao Mai Kaew almost seem unreal and feature impressive rock formations. For peerless recreation, Hin Daeng and Hin Muang are world class dive sites though in truth, the two major islands that make up Koh Lanta are full of great spots to snorkel and observe colorful marine life.

Calming Koh Lanta

So beautiful it almost doesn’t seem real, Koh Lanta is a real Asian paradise – but the not place to go if you feel self-conscious in bikini or board shorts. Koh Lanta is built around the beach, which is hardly surprising as they are all over the 50-odd islands that make up this southern Thai region. ... Read more »

Hit the sands of Kawkwang, Khlong Khong and Khlong Toab for paradise-style beach experiences and follow it up with a good post-beach feed in Ban Saladan. Want more water time? Hin Muang is one of the best spots for deep-sea diving in the world, while tamer activities like snorkelling can also keep you happily occupied.

Koh Lanta hasn’t been spoilt by overdevelopment, meaning high-rise resorts (and the people they attract) don’t exist here. So all you’ve got to worry about is working on those abs…

Koh Lanta Events

February’s Macha Bucha is an important Buddhist holiday. Expect hordes of Thai-filled temples, colourful parades and a great buzz.

The Laanta Lanta Festival in March is one of the biggest events of the year. Experience authentic Thai culture through traditional performances, food, craft workshops and markets.

Combine singing, dancing, a drizzle of traditional rituals and a shipload of Buddha and what do you get? October’s Chak Phra Festival, of course!

The Loi-Rua/Boat Floating Ceremony held every October is a fun and meaningful event. Watch locals cast their bad luck out to sea via colourful boats decorated with flowers. When that’s all done and dusted? Party time!

When To Go

There are two distinct seasons in Koh Lanta – hot/dry and not-as-hot/wet. Expect 34°C (93°F) days during the former and 28°C (82°F) days in the latter.

There’ll be storms, storms and more storms if you’re visiting in September and October.

The humidity can get intense in Koh Lanta, often reaching 100 per cent. If you’re sensitive to this, avoid jungle treks and visits to the National Park

Getting Around

Taxis are cheap but unregulated, so be wary of shifty drivers who hike up their prices.

The lack of public transport means hiring a car is the best way to go in this town. You can also hire motorbikes and scooters, but the roads are pretty awful and accidents are common.

If you’re venturing out to the National Park, make sure you’re in a suitable vehicle as the roads are muddy, potholed and steep.
