Things to do
Koh Lanta is the biggest island in the local archipelago that forms part of a marine national park. Explore untouched swathes of mangroves, or hike rugged wooded hills. Then dive down into some spectacular coral formations.
The island is home to a diverse array of faiths and cultures, including Buddhists, Muslims and the Chao-Le, who are known as ‘sea gypsies’. Learn about the Chao-Le way of life and their traditions that have been unaffected by the tourism that surrounds them.
In the centre of Koh Lanta you’ll find the Khao Mai Kaew caves, a stunning collection of caverns and rock formations. Arrange to hire a private guide from your luxury hotel to show you the way, and you can even take an elephant ride while you are here.
