Koh Lanta

The third, but not least attractive island of the Andaman Sea Coast is Koh Lanta. The island is famous for its stunning, white sandy beaches and excellent dive sites. It actually consists of several islands of which the two largest are Koh Lanta Yai and Koh Lanta Noi. These islands are popular among those searching for relaxation. The islands don’t really offer nightlife spots. This is a fact you should consider before traveling here.
