Koh Lanta- Pg-3


We wasted no time exploring before hitting the beach, and the list of things to do was quite exhausting. But first the old town of Koh Lanta. We hired a souped up Tuk Tuk with comfortable seats. It was a fairly long drive away from the hotels and resorts, we headed towards the scenic coastline.


Lanta Old Town was a favorite stopover for Arab and Chinese traders centuries before Lanta in its present phase was developed. Old Town was like a heritage walk through, with ancient houses, some of the wooden buildings two levels high.


Elaborate entrances, carved gateways, it was quaint and so charming. Today most of these dwellings have been converted to restaurants and cafes making this street a must do stopover.IMG_6271IMG_1035 (1)
