It's already at noon, and not the check-in time. We go out for lunch first.
Sit in a bar beside the beach. 1 fire rice + 1 checken + 2 big coconut juice. That's life.
Will anything be more nice than a lunch with this sea view?
We had book a sea view room. Which we could watching the sea form bed. that's too luxury this time.
The room was quite nice, well designed. But same as in Koh Krabi, the water out for tag is a little salt, could not be drinked. Fortunately, the hotel prepared four bottles of mineral water for us. So it's enough for us.
The hotel has a private beach. In fact, it's a contiguous beach, each hotel has its own front piece. The water is just soso, a little better than Ao nang beach. But the south beach of Lanta is really nice, which could be match that of Mataking. That's why we recommend the south Lanta for people with enough time.
However, I have memtion before the advantage of stay here is that, it close to town, and clost to market for eating and fun.
Contiguous coconut trees, the hotel is fairly quiet. not too many persons.
Lazy days, feeling the sand slowly glide form the hourglass of time....
life is just fine here. but we have to go back to real life, to deal with the trivial things. Because of this, a vocation form time to time is needed.
Time goes by, the first sunset in Lanta, the island of krabi and phuket comes.
Ok. it's time to go to our first seafood dinner. This restaurant named Black pearl, is recommended by Tuktuk driver, who take us there.
Taste really good. But the lobster is hot in Koh lanta, it sold out quick at night, if we go late. And it's already late, and sold out, so we take crab and shrimp instead.
Of course, Tom Yum Kung are essential.
seafood + beer == best match.
We go to the supermarket when we going back.
Going to massage is one of need to do things. saying to goodbye for the first night in koh lanta. with the last photo of the hotel.
To enjoy the pool in morning alone.
And the beautiful morning in beach, before breafast, we had finnished our running excercise.
Here the breafast time. it start at 7:00 am. with rich choice.
What to do in phuket ? in this koh lanta island?
In koh lanta island, choices will be kayaking, elephant riding, caving, sightseeing old town lanta, National Park.
In fact, for island tours, sightseeing not really the attractive part. Staying in island, all we want most is relax and leisure. So take it easy, not nessary to go to all attractions. Do you think so?
In fact staying in beach, with sea wind and sun, and with a favorit book or just sleeping is a best way.
And you could take part in a one day of harf day tour package anytime you want. and you could find the travelling agent anywhere.
Our arrangement today is a motor tours. we hired a motor for 240B/24H. And we are hiring 3hours more, without paying extra. People here are nice.
We were going to National park of Koh lanta. turn right form this corner, then go straight ahead. Then you will reach the National park.
Yes. go straight all this road.
Coca here is in long shape, cool. Sun protect in Thailand is really important. I forgot suncreen on face, and my face burned after half day motor tour.
gas oil in Thailand is cheap, and you could find it everywhere.
After rest and supplyment, we keep going to the south. the beach is one more beautiful than the others, when we going to the more south of Lanta. Water is more clear in south.
In fact, the National Park is located in almost the southernmost tip of the island. If you're a new rider. It's not easy to ride the motor to go there. Because there's a lot of downhill. It cost us more than 1 hours to go there, the ticket is 200B/per, and 20B/motor.
Is this map cute? like hand drawing?
After a super-steep downhill, finally we saw the landmark - the lighthouse
Woow, Blue sky and clear water. There're sereral resort here, high class, with pretty good enviroment, but with few people. And there's an elephant camp near the national park. so ther you could put elephant riding and National park tour in the same day. then you don't need to go the south twice, if you don't have enough time.
You could climb to the foot of the small mountain for the lightower.
it's a good place to watch sunset here.
But we're going back, as we're riding a motorcycle, it's not safe to ride long way at night. As we're not as familar with the traffic here.
When we went back to the north, it's already noon. We went to L.Maladee for lunch. it's said to be with the most fresh seafood here.
The best mango ever had.
After that we go massage. My face burned, and turning hot and hurt. I need to go massage to repare my face.
the price is getting higher than before.
And the one who serve me is ladyboy. Ladyboy is normal in Thailand.
After that, we have to go back to hotel. To get away form the strong sun, ensure, skin repair. and then we could continue the our tour the coming days.
later the evening, the sun is getting weaker. and we go to the sea for the next sunset. it's so colorfu.
I like this sweet couple.
The night market of Koh Lanta is small. but things is rich enough, similar to the other night markets in Phuket. A lot of muslin. Yes, the local of Phuket erea is Muslin.
The next morning, we go back to Ao nang, and then going for snorkeling the afternoon.
the ferry going straight to Ao nang is 1:30. So we first go to Krabi at 8:30 am ferry. then to Ao nang hotel by car.
All the snorkeling tour is one day tour. so that we hire a long tail boat for 1700B half day. In this way, the time is control by us, and we could decide which island to go and which island to stay, and how long we want to stay.
First island we go is Poda,
Then we go checken island and other islands.
We're going to The hill top at night. It's only about 5munites form Hotel to the mountain foot. but Tuktuk could not go up the hill top, we have to wait for the car form the Hill Top.
See, the booking email and tell no. is on the board of the mountain foot.
This is the car pick us up.
You could see the whole Ao nang island form The Hill Top.
Sunset form The Hill Top is woow.
Eating here is not very expensive. Price is fair.
Our vaction is stopped form The Hill Top. and we flight is at night after dinner here. We left hotel to airport.
Bye Lanta, bye Ao nang, by Krabi and Phuket.
