Relaxing on Koh Lanta
Whilst Koh Phi Phi is the ‘party’ island, Koh Lanta is the island to go to if you want to relax. The main island in Koh Lanta, Koh Lanta Yai, is 30 km long with lots of beaches, small towns and villages, and virtually no nightlife. Koh Lanta is good value for money as well.
Koh Lanta rarely gets crowded even though it is a popular destination. The reason for this is that the island so large. For nearly the entire 30 km of the west cost there are beaches. The roads on the island are good so it is easy to explore what is on offer if you rent a vehicle. The main town, Ban Saladan, has a sleepy feel to it with the most busy part of the town being the ferry port, Saladan Pier.
Once you leave the west coast of Koh Lanta towards the centre of the island and onto the east coast it becomes even more relaxed. The only significant settlement on the east coast is Koh Lanta Old Town, which is worth going to see, other than that it’s fishing villages inhabited by the once nomadic chao ley people (often called Sea Gypsies), small farms and mangrove swamps. A lot of families come to Koh Lanta to enjoy relaxing two week beach holidays and some long stay visitors come to spend a month or more in idyllic and inexpensive beach huts, particularly around Klong Khong Beach.
