Trips from Koh Lanta

We went on the 4 Island Tour in December 2005 (1300B each*). The first stop was for snorkelling . The main attraction there was the incredibly brightly coloured coral - blue, purple, pink and green - very pretty and very bright colours. There was a large selection of fish there too, and the sea was lovely and warm. Second stop was at the Emerald Cave. We had to swim through a pitch black cave (quite spooky) and at the end of it there was a little bay surrounded by high rocks with a white sand beach and green water. The hardest bit was trying to swim wearing a life jacket! Next stop was Koh Kradan, a beautiful island with white sand and lovely clear turquoise sea. We had lunch there and some time to relax and swim. The final stop was one we'd been looking forward to - Koh Ngai (Hai). We'd seen photos and the beach looked incredibly beautiful so we were really disappointed when the boat stopped for snorkelling and we realised we weren't actually going to the island, just snorkelling off it. The snorkelling was quite good with lots of gorgeous bluey purple giant clams and quite a lot of fish. It was a nice way to spend a day.

Restaurants and Bars in Koh Lanta


Bar with colourful cushions on the beach at Koh Lanta

We loved the relaxed atmosphere at night on Klong Dao beach. Nightlife on Koh Lanta is very low key, but there are some bars and a decent selection of restaurants, mostly along the beach. It's lovely sitting in a cute little restaurant with candles, listening to the waves and running your toes through the sand. We particularly loved the colourful cushions where you could sit and have a drink - really lovely.

 

The pictures here are from Easy Bar. Apart from the cushions, they have normal tables where you can sit if you want to eat. We had delicious food there - a green Thai curry and a sweet and sour chicken. Very reasonable and lots of 'squeaky' vegetables. We also had a good meal at Bai Bua where the staff were very friendly and attentive - very spicy curries there too!

 

Koh Lanta is one of the best places we've ever been for sunsets. Quite spectacular. It was nice to go to the Golden Bay Bar for a cocktail in their happy hour and watch the sunset. The Mai Tais were delicious and only 95B*.
