Koh LantaTravel

Ko Lanta

In July 2016 we’ve booked our tickets with Hong Kong Airlines to go to Ko Lanta.

So first we go to HK, we have a perfect connection to Krabi so we don’t need to wait too long in the airport. After arriving in Krabi we need to take a 30 minute taxi drive to the ferry. Make sure you check the schedule of the ferry before you book your stay & tickets.

The island boasts stunning scenery, fantastic white sandy beaches, coastlines dotted with more than 70 small islands and plenty of forest, coral reefs and under water life.

So this is our moment to go for our PADI Open Water Course.
Our mentor Steve from Andaman Dive explains us the tips & the tricks so we can easily get our certificate.

The local food is amazing, as always in Thailand. We try some Pad Thai, Green & Red Curry’s, Tom Yum soup, Massaman curry with chicken. Oh, and while your walking or driving around in Thailand you will definitely find some local people baking pancakes on the streets. YOU MUST TRY THEM. Usually they are stuffed with nutella & bananas. I know, perfect combination.

Our favorite way of getting around is with the scooter. You can easily hire one in your hotel.

Go wherever you want & whenever you want. You will see so many nice scenery along the way and what I like the most, you can have an honest view of how the locals live here. Make a stop and chat with them, they will love it!

We make a stop at a butterfly farm along the way. The friendly owner invites us to come in and is so proud he can show us everything he owns.
