Transportation

Travelling to Ko Lanta

Ko Lanta is easy accesable eventhough it is an island. There are passenger ferries heading to Ko Lanta from the North like Phuket, Phi Phi, Aonang, Railey, Krabi, Ko Jum or from the South of Thailand like Ko Mook, Ko Kradan, Ko Ngai, Ko Bulon, Ko Lipe, Langkawi. The ferries even run in low season about every second day.

If you arrive by road then you have to cross with two car ferries that run on a regular basis. First from the mainland (Hua Hin) to Ko Lanta Noi and then from Ko Lanta Noi to Ko Lanta Yai. A bridge between Ko Lanta Noi and Ko Lanta Yai is under construction and should be finished by 2016.
