Koh Lanta – April 2014
Finally to end my trip I had booked five nights on the island of Ko Lanta and after the blistering heat of Bangkok I couldn’t wait for some beach time. I initially stayed at Ancient Realm Resort and Spa but it was not a nice hotel (filthy, cockroaches, not how it sounded on line) so after a few days switched to the lovely beach front SriLanta Hotel.
I spent an idyllic five days zooming around on my scooter visiting each end of the island, eating at seafood restaurants set on a cliff, and swimming in the sea. I went on a day snorkeling tour and got to see some of the less inhabited islands, beautiful marine life, and swim through a pitch black cave to a hidden beach on the other side.
Reluctantly after five days I left for Krabi where I stayed at the Red Ginger Chic before flying home.
