Around the Lanta Islands
Why go from one beach to another, you may ask. Well, because the islands around Ko Lanta - Ko Rok, Ko Ngai, Ko Muk and Ko Phi Phi - are simply stunning as well as offering amazing snorkelling. You won't regret stirring from your hammock, we promise.
To organise any of these excursions - which can all be done in a day - contact your hotel tour desk or visit one of the many independent agents on the island the day before you wish to travel. Most tours will include round trip transfers from / to your hotel so there is no need to worry about transport to the departure point.
They will also all include lunch and soft drinks, as well as snorkeling equipment. Things you may wish to bring are your camera (and a waterproof pouch) and sun cream; beachwear is acceptable at all destinations. Prices vary from 1200 - 1500 baht per person, depending on the destination / mode of transport.
Note: because of the distances involved, none of these trips can be done independently (i.e. in a chartered longtail boat); you must travel with a group tour in a bigger vessel or speedboat.
