Ko Lanta
About Ko Lanta

Koh Lanta is a 25 km-long island off the Andaman coast of Thailand, south of Phuket and Krabi. Renowned for its long beaches, quiet seclusion, and natural beauty both above and below the water, Koh Lanta is a beach lover’s and scuba diver’s paradise.

How to go
One can take a bus from Bangkok’s Southern Bus Terminal to both Krabi and Trang, the two closest locations for arranging transfer to Koh Lanta.

From Krabi there are a number of private tour companies that can arrange for mini-bus or boat travel to Koh Lanta that include fees for ferries and other transfers to your hotel on Koh Lanta. The journey takes between 1 and 2 hours.

From Trang, daily mini-buses depart at noon for Koh Lanta, a trip that takes approximately 2 ½ hours including a short vehicle ferry crossing.

From Phuket one must first take a bus from Phuket Town to Krabi Town, where mini-bus or boat transfer can either be pre-arranged or booked upon arrival.
There is no airport in Koh Lanta, so those wishing to fly to Koh Lanta must fly to Krabi Airport and then take a car or mini-bus 70 km south to the island, including travel upon two short car ferries. There are numerous flights to Krabi from Bankok and various other airports around Thailand. Ground transport from Krabi airport to Koh Lanta is well established and timed to leave following air arrivals.
