EN: Our little getaway was almost ending so we decided to make the most of it. We spent the last days in Ko Kradan and Ko Lanta.
Ko Lanta consists of several islands, the two largest of which are Ko Lanta Noi and Ko Lanta Yai. Nine beaches lie from north to south along the sunset coast. The island boasts stunning scenery, fantastic white sandy beaches, coastlines dotted with more than 70 small islands and plenty of forest, coral reefs and under water life.
There are so many places you can visit here like: Ban Saladan, the tourist centre of Ko Lanta, Khao Mai Kaew Caves, located in the centre of the island,Ko Lanta Noi, Lanta Old Town, a small village on Ko Lanta’s East side, Orchid nursery farm, recommended to all those who especially like flowers and Sea Gypsy Village.
From all this we decided to go for Lanta Old Town, as the time was short and we still had some places to visit.Click here to take a pick on how this place looks like.
There are two elephant camps in Ko Lanta. Both offer short treks through the countryside: one through the rubber plantations, the other to a cave with a waterfall. There is not much else to say as we only went on the elephant for 10 minutes and then I felt bad for the poor elephant and asked the guide to take us back. It was an interesting experience, but once in a lifetime it’s enough for me.
Ko Kradan is one of the most amazing island I have ever seen. From the white sand beach to the blue sky water, this place is like a little bit of heaven. Snorkeling and swimming are excellent, you can ask my boyfriend about this as he ditched me on the beach and went snorkeling for hours. But no worries ladies, you can enjoy the sun or just relax in the shadow of the trees.
Words are not necessary here and will let you decide from the pictures we took if it’s all worth it!
