      Krabi Nov 11, 2016 at 1:40 AM

      Hi All,

      I am visiting krabi for the first time with my wife in December. I had a few questions regarding food and local travel.We will be staying at a hotel at tubkaek.

      2) Can I hire scooter for local travel and would i need an international drivers license for the same(traveling from India)

      3) Vegetarian food options in krabi town and ao nang including street food.

      4) Apart from 4 island tour and railay beach any other must visit places?


    • Package Transfer Phuket Airport +Ferry Phi Phi + Transfer to Karon

      Phuket Nov 23, 2016 at 4:11 AM

      We will arrive at Phuket Airport at 8:10 a.m. We will need a transfer to go from the airport to Rassada Pier + ferry tickets to Phi Phi tound trip + transfer the following day from Rassada Pier to Karon.
      We have seen the prices at but it can be risky to take them on-line in advance because if the flight is delayed.... so is it easy to find any agency at the airport to contract this package? and it can be more expensive taking everything at the airport or is better buying the tickets separately? What would you recommend us?

    • Beach/Scooters/Sights

      by catherinen_66 Online Now Aug 21, 2013 at 11:03 AM

      Hi all, I'm planning to stay on Phra Ae for a few days in Dec with my boyfriend. Can you please advise as to whether the beach here is still clean and scenic? I've read that it's become more developed and touristy over the years. I'd love to stay in Kantiang Bay, but due to time constraints I think somewhere closer to Saladan would be better.

      Would we be able to take a scooter all the way down to the southern beaches? And if so, is it safe? We've ridden scooters several times before but I don't know what the roads are like here.

      Lastly, we'd love to explore the island and perhaps hike to some waterfalls. If anyone has recommendations on beautiful views or must-sees/must-dos (including any day trips elsewhere) I'd very much appreciate the input!

      Krabi Airport to Ko Lanta

      by cheekin22 Online Now Mar 3, 2013 at 10:45 PM

      Understand that there are minibus/van services from the Krabi airport to Ko Lanta, is this correct?
      Has anyone tried the services before?
      What's the timetable and the price for the service? I'll arrive in Krabi airport at 2pm.
      How long will the journey takes?
      Do I still need to arrange the boat service separately if I travel by minibus/van?
      I'm planning to go & stay in Phra Ee Beach first before explore to other places in Lanta.
      Many thanks in advance for your reply.

      Is this the worst beach to stay near?

      I've read reviews that there are parties at the bars, broken glass from the parties on the beach, rocky beaches, and very poor beach bungalows...all making it the worst place to stay on the island.

      Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    • 2 month rental in Koh Lanta

      by buckrodgers Online Now Feb 17, 2013 at 10:53 AM

      I was wondering if a $1000 USD per month budget would be sufficient to get a modern, somewhat luxurious 1 or 2 bedroom villa in Koh Lanta with a sea view and high-speed Internet access? Any recommendations would be great.

      Additionally, what would be the best area to stay in that's peaceful, quiet, and family-friendly but still within reasonable distance of some nicer restaurants and the Thai boxing gym?

      Hi All,

      I am probably heading over to Koh Lanta for for about 5 days at the end of April/ beginning of May and wondering if it might be too much time or to little. I'm also wondering about the nightlife or if it's it a good place to meet up with other travellers, etc.

      Has anyone else been there or is anyone else going?

    • Ko Lanta - Best Location for trips fo Ko Rok and Kradang?

      by Yosemite_44 Online Now Nov 2, 2010 at 2:48 AM


      I will be flying to Phuket in a few days - transfering to Ko Phi Phi Don (northern end of the island) for 2 days and then moving on to Ko Lanta on our way to Krabi.

      We'd like to spend 2-4 days on Ko Lanta to discover the island and make trips to nearby snorkeling places such as Ko Rok and Kradang.

      So I have the following questions:

      1. What's overall the nicest place on Ko Lanta - in terms of beaches and scenery? Presence of bars/nightife etc is not important. I heard it gets better the more south you go?

      2. Right now we are considering either Pra Ae (better than the other northern beaches and quite close to the pier) or further down near Bamboo Bay, Waterfall Beach and the national park (nicer but far from the pier). How far would it be to travel to the pier at Saladan? Is it worth going so deep south? And what accomodation would you recommend?

      3. I heard the Saladan pier is the only one from where you can go to Ko Rok and Kradang, is that correct? Or could we depart in the south of Ko Lanta as well?

      4. Ko Rok and Kradang are supposed to be the nicest islands around, would you recommend them?

      Is there a road yet?

      by Loops Online Now Sep 18, 2010 at 8:35 AM

      I went to Ko Lanta about 6 years ago and the main road around the island was dusty, pot-holed road and quite unpleasant to travel on. Has it been repaved yet? The reason I ask is because the state of the road will play a part in where we'll choose to stay - if it's still bad, we'd rather stay up on Klong Dao Beach but if it's better than it was, we might head further south.

      thanks to anyone who's been there recently who can help.

      I just booked a room in Lanta resort and spa for my honeymoon. Has anyone stayed there? Is it a good resort? The hotel website says they do airport pickups. I'm flying to Phuket international airport and wanted to know if they will pick us up from there. Also, just out of curiosity how do you get to the resort from Phuket international airport without depending on the hotel shuttle to come pick us up?

    • Low season activities

      by mydigitalself Online Now Jul 7, 2010 at 9:59 AM

      Hi all,

      My girlfriend and I will be in Thailand for 2 weeks at the end of July and first week of August. We are strongly considering Ko Lanta for about 8 or 9 days which has been recommended by friends but are concerned that with the low season we won't be able to do things like visit Ko Rok and the 4 islands and Pi Pi, do some hiking into the waterfalls and perhaps an elephant trek. Day trip up to Krabi proper.

      Patrick at Lalaanta where we are considering staying didn't seem to imply that it would be easy to organise. Any thoughts or suggestions?

      The alternative is we go somewhere else entire like Chang Mai...

However, I don't know if "July Ko Lanta" is going to offer what I'm looking for. I understand that it is significantly more quiet in July, that doesn't bother me. I do want to be able to enjoy some of the activities that I know are available during the peak season. I also had a few questions with some of the issues regarding the monsoons.

    • Travelling to Phuket, Koh Lanta and Phi Phi Islands in mid September to early October 2009

      by lil_miss_audrey Online Now Aug 27, 2009 at 5:43 AM

      Hi all,

      I had a few questions about travelling to Phuket, Koh Lanta and Phi Phi Islands in September. I understand this is low season but I just wanted to know if people had any advice regarding:

      1) Is the weather going to be mostly rain? I know its rainy season, but I have been to Boracay in the Philippines in September and it rained sporadically but was still very hot and sunny, so I thought that it would be similar weather. People who have been to Thailand in September told me that the weather is not as bad as what people make it out to be, so I just wanted to find out what the real deal was.

      2) We are starting our trip off in Phuket, but I wanted to find out the best way to get to Koh Lanta and Phi Phi Islands during September/October months. Also, is it better to go to Koh Lanta from Phuket then Koh Lanta to Phi Phi Islands?

      3) Any suggestions on accommodation? We would like something that is relatively comfortable but affordable.

      If anyone can give advice, it would be greatly appreciated.
