Koh Lanta Yai and Lanta Noi are popular Tourist Destinations. Among these 2 islands, Kho Lanta Yai Island is the bigger and more popular one, while Koh Lanta Noi is almost completely unexploited by tourism. Lanta is the ideal destination for those who wish to get off the beaten track and experience pristine waters and long, uncrowded white beaches. Koh Lanta is located in Krabi Province on the south-west coast of Thailand (Andaman Sea), approximately 70 km south of Krabi Town and Airport.
Among the Lanta Islands, Lanta Yai has witnessed amazing infrastructure developments in the last decade to cater to the steady flow of tourists. Due to this, there are ample choices for accommodation, transport and other activities there. The northern side of the island is certainly the most developed and lively, while the south is still quite wild. There is a bit of night life with occasional scheduled parties for those seeking it, but the wild party life of Phi Phi and Phuket is not something you can find in Koh Lanta.
