Customer Travel Tip: We had an amazing bike ride to Old Lanta which is a quaint little place and well worth the visit!

Liked: I enjoyed the ease of getting around, the amazing views and different activities that were available for us for our time there.

Disliked: The night life wasn't amazing, but in all fairness, we went there for a chilled time after Koh Phi Phi, so it was a nice wind down time for us.

Customer Travel Tip: A great place to chill out.

Liked: Great beaches... There are awesome parties here but they are really avoided if that is not your scene.

Disliked: Getting around was a bit of a pain... The island is big and there are no buses. You can hire scooters or get tuk tuks most places.

Trip Type:
Backpacking / gap year Beach / sunbathing Sightseeing & culture

Customer Travel Tip: On your first full day, rent a scooter (for between 150-250 baht) and explore.

Liked: It's small and chilled out, yet if you rent a scooter you can spend days exploring the island from north to south and east to west. So much to explore. Great views from the seafront restarunts.

Disliked: No. But it is NOT an island you come to for a party time.
