Thailand, Ko Lanta Yai Guide (B): Visiting Ko Lanta
Wild, exotic, warm, alternating white beaches to the jungle and still very Thai, and this is something not so easy to find on the other islands!
Actually Koh Lanta is composed of 52 islands and the most important is Koh Lanta Yai, where I went back four times already.
The first time I went there, in 2009, nearly all the roads were sandy and getting off the scooter you’d have the shape of your clothes and sunglasses printed on the skin. Year after year the streets were paved and a bit of magic perhaps went lost, but you are no longer forced to apnea while crossing other vehicles.
Renting a scooter costs about THB 90/100 and all resorts undertake the management. As for the refueling, well there are distributors on the island, but you can get gas anywhere at any time by buying one or more bottles of petrol on the roadside … yep, they sell it in recycled mineral water bottles and you can get it in almost any shop or private houses having a window on the edge of the road! ......
