Koh Lanta

Everything You Need to Know About Koh Lanta

Koh Lanta is delightfully exotic, thanks to its remote location, pristine beaches and balmy weather. It comprises 52 islands in the southernmost region of Thailand's Krabi Province, of which the largest and best-known is Koh Lanta Yai. The island is approximately seventy kilometres from Krabi, and offers an appealing escape from highly popular tourist destinations like Phuket and Phi Phi.

Once a backpacker's haven, Koh Lanta Yai nowadays sports several exclusive resorts. Friendly locals and its unspoiled nature are still main attractions. Misty mountains abound in some areas, especially down south, while the islands' lush jungle, clean sandy beaches, pretty coral reefs and crystal-clear water make for a relaxing retreat.
