This was my first ever visit to Koh Lanta and it certainly took on a very different appearance to other Thai islands I have visited. For starters it was a longer and thinner island and much flatter than, say, Koh Samui or Koh Chang.
It took me around 50 minutes to drive from North to South, yet the East to West was around 20 minutes.
Exploring this region of Koh Lanta on the East coast, and especially the Old Town, really complimented the world class beaches found on the East. Lovely way to spend a couple of hours and a nice place to grab some food and drink too.
