Overview of Koh Lanta

Located in Thailand’s Krabi province and known for its coral-fringed beaches, mangroves, limestone outcrops, and rainforests, Koh Lanta is the perfect island for those looking for a Thai Island that has not succumbed to overdevelopment.

The Aow Nui, Tanod Cape Viewpoint, Hat Kor Kwang, Hat Khlong Dawn, Hat Phra Ae, Tanod Cape, Baan Sriraya, and sea Gypsy House are some of the interesting places you can explore here. If you’re on the more adventurous side, you can go diving and see the colorful coral reefs and fishes in Hin Muang-Hin Daeang, Koh Rok, and Koh Ha Yai.
