    Users Assigned: Kazmi  
    Koh Lanta is an island just off the west coast of Krabi which is becoming a popular tourist destination, the island is known for its long, sandy beaches and scuba diving. It can easily be reached by ferry from Phuket, Krabi or Phi Phi and by minibus from other destinations.

    The island is about 32 km long and 8 km wide, with jungle covered hills and mountains running down its centre. The west coast of the island has at least 10 beautiful sandy beaches and the coastline has more than 70 small islands and plenty with forest, coral reefs and under water life. The east of the island is mostly tidal mangrove, good for kayaking, and also home to Lanta Old Town, a traditional Thai fishing community. The South of Lanta is encompassed by the 134 km² Mu Koh Lanta National Park.

    Koh Lanta is far less developed than some of its neighboring islands popular with travelers and herein lies the beauty. Things to do include scuba diving, island/snorkelling trips, elephant trekking, exploring caves and beaches, kayaking through mangroves and observing the unique cultures of traditional Thai fishing families as well as an ancient Sea Gypsy community. You may also take Thai cooking classes, train in Muay Thai boxing or learn the Thai language. Everyone however must enjoy watching the amazing sunsets over the Andaman Sea while relaxing on these stunning beaches.

      • Phi Phi Islands
        For those of you who have seen the movie The Beach, Koh Phi Phi existed very much like it did in the film: a laid-back, mostly unheard-of tropical island that only the most adventurous sorts traveled to, with only basic accommodations available. However, the popularity of the movie literally sparked a sort of crazed frenzy which sent people rushing in hordes to the archipelago, transforming Koh Phi Phi from a little-known tropical island into one of the hottest island destinations in the region in the earliest part of the 21st century.

        However, Koh Phi Phi’s infrastructure was tragically wiped out in the 2004 tsunami. It has recovered fairly quickly, but services are still not up to par with what they were prior to the devastation. Some people complain that the rush to build new infrastructure combined with mass tourism has stripped the beauty away from the area and transformed it into just another resort town.

        If you can handle the crowds and the constant noise of construction in the major areas, Koh Phi Phi is still an amazing place. Technically it is a small archipelago, with several small islands that make up the whole, with the population staying on Koh Phi Phi Don, which is the largest of the islands. The rest are uninhabited, and literally packed full of wildlife and natural beauty to explore.

        From coral reefs to stone formations, sandy beaches and cliff walls rising out of the sea against tropical jungles and rolling hills, Koh Phi Phi is a breathtaking site at any time of the year. From places like The Viewpoint where you can see over everything to Monkey Beach or Yao Beach, Koh Phi Phi can provide you with whatever your tropical vacation needs to complete itself. From diving to snorkeling to hiking and exploring, you can find it here.

        Unfortunately the recent increase in tourism as well as the lack of clean-up programs has left the once beautiful beaches of Koh Phi Phi Don looking more like a dump than an island paradise. Most tourists were at one time traveling here for the laid back attitude this island was known for and to relax on the beautiful beaches but now bars like Slicks, The Reggae Bar, and Hippy Bar which are drowning out any chance of laid back relaxation you thought you might get with their overly loud techno till 5am.

        Be warned, however; there have been over half a dozen cases of foreigners dying under mysterious circumstances in recent years, with the islands being under investigation as of 2009 by the U.S. Embassy.
