A bamboo hut or a luxury hotel with its feet in the water? It's possible! It's possible! A whole art of living by taking the time and enjoying the environment, tropical fruits, fresh fish and all the small dishes of Thai cuisine is the deal. You will meet couples, families, backpackers, expatriates from Europe who have chosen to live there all year round or almost all year round and of course the local people whose hospitality contributes to the charm of this destination. In fact, Koh Lanta is composed of several islands, the two main ones being Koh Lanta Yai (30 km long and 6 km wide) and Koh Lanta Noi. Tourist facilities are in Koh Lanta Yai with beaches. The eastern coast is the wildest. Koh Lanta Noi, for its part, is an island of fishermen and farmers with mangroves and forestry operations. The other small islands of Koh Lanta are deserted and make up the national park of the same name, rich in biodiversity, where paths allow you to discover lush tropical vegetation.
