About Koh Lanta Old Town
Located on the quieter east coast of Koh Lanta’s largest island, Koh Lanta Yai, the Old Town is a 400 metre stretch of road on the coast with old wooden shop houses on each side of the street leading away from what used to be the island’s main trading port. Most of these historic wooden buildings have now been converted into restaurants, bars, souvenir shops and hotels. although a few remain in use as very old fashioned Thai shops and as temples. The new businesses which have opened in the old buildings have a boutique feel to them offering high quality products, or well presented food, at prices which are generally higher than those on the rest of the island.
The Old Town is a charming place to visit. There are some great old buildings here, including a community museum which never appears to be open but nonetheless is situated in an authentic wooden Southern Thai style building which is interesting to look at from the outside. The views from the coastline are also spectacular. There are lots of small islands off the east coast of Koh Lanta and an ideal place to sit and enjoy the view is one of the many restaurants with a dining area on a wooden balcony overlooking the sea, such as the Rareview Coffee & Restaurant near the roundabout in the Old Town.
