Koh Lanta Yai…

While Trevor, Chenty and Philip went over to Phi-Phi to do some diving, I opted to ride on to Koh Lanta island instead… I was pretty sure that the hype surrounding Phi-Phi was not all that well placed, and as it turned out, I was correct in this assumption…

Many people I spoke to later, could not wait to get off the island, and had regretted ever going there… Seems that since the Tsunami in 2004, Phi-Phi is no longer the paradise it once was…!!

I am having a great time here on “Lanta”, and am putting up a few pics to keep you up to date with my movements…

I have completed the postings up to and leaving Bangkok, and will fill in more of the gaps in due course…

Koh Lanta is a great place to kick back in, and I could quite easily spend a few weeks here…

Ist ferry crossing to Koh Lanta Noi...

Map of the southern island of Koh Lanta Yai, with it's many hotels and resorts clearly listed...

After crossing over onto Koh Lanta Noi, I headed for Kao Lanta Yai, the holiday island...

But first, another short ferry crossing...

I settled on the White Rock Resort, then sent the co-ordinates to Trevor, who was on Phi-Phi Island, a few kilometres away...

On a short ride to the south of the island, I met up with these two South African ladies...

Lunch on the patio... Both Phi-Phi islands can be seen in the background across the bay...

Dyslexia Rules, KO..!!

More later…!!
