Must-visit places in Koh Lanta


Dive at Koh Haa Islands

My opinion :
One of the most popular diving sites in Thailand with underwater caves. The largest one is called the cathedral because of its shape. Koh Haa is actually a set of 5 islands located within the Mu Koh Lanta National Marine Park. Diving is offered in high season (from October 15 to May 15 in general).

Koh Rok island

My opinion :
This beautiful island (in fact, it is 2 islands) with preserved nature is about 30 kilometers from Koh Lanta. White sandy beaches, clear turquoise waters and coral reefs and the junge that surrounds it make Koh Rok the ideal destination for diving or snorkeling. Day trips are offered by all agencies from Koh Lanta or Trang islands.

Lanta Old Town

starstarstar Lanta Old Town was the capital of the island about a century ago. There is a more authentic atmosphere with wooden houses, some on the waterfront on stilts. Not many tourists go there but it dies not lack of charm and offers beautiful views of the surrounding islands.
Tung Yee Peng Village

Tung Yee Peng Village

starstarstar This small village on the East side of Koh Lanta allows access to the mangrove where you can or kayak or rent longtail boats trips to the neighboring islands. Still little known, this is one of the places to do in Koh Lanta if you like ecotourism and want to change a bit from the beaches.
