Day 1. Krabi - Koh Lanta (-/-/-)
Welcome to Southern Thailand!
Upon arrival at Krabi Airport, meet your driver for a private transfer to Koh Lanta (70kms, about 1h drive). You will use a public ferry to reach the island before continuing driving to your accommodation. Check-in on arrival with the rest of the day at leisure to enjoy some well deserved relaxing time by the beach.
Day 2. Koh Lanta (B/-/-)
After breakfast (08.30), you will be picked up from your hotel and transferred to Thung Yee Pheng Village (35min drive).
On arrival, meet with the local community of Thung Yee Pheng, learn about the mangrove forest and experience how a community tries to keep their traditional way of life while preserving this fragile ecosystem. Don’t miss the walkway that leads through the mangrove forest, from where you can observe small crabs on the ground of the forest.
You will then select your kayak and start paddling through the shady mangrove rivers between Ko Lanta Yai and Ko Lanta Nai islands. The mangrove roots create a quiet, protected area for fish, crabs, oysters, lobsters and shrimps, the forest is as well a nursery area for reptiles, mammals and birds and protects the coast from erosion.
Enjoy some seasonal fruits and soft drinks at the community restaurant before your transfer back to your hotel. Expected time of arrival is around 13.30.
Day 3. Koh Lanta (B/L/-)
Get ready today for a full day touring around the island to discover the natural wonders Koh Lanta has to offer! There is no need to bring anything with you other than your camera, your enthusiasm, and your spirit of adventure and exploration! You will be provided with everything else that you need to fully enjoy your tour, including the canoe and any necessary safety equipment.
Pick up from your hotel (09.00-09.30) and transfer to Lanta Old Town’s pier to board a local boat. We first head to Koh Chuek and enjoy some paddling along beautiful limestone cliffs. You will have the opportunity to explore some caves, which all contain stalagmites and stalactites, as well as observing the local wildlife. Return to the boat.
Around noon, we will take a short 15-minute journey to Koh Waen to enjoy canoeing along its shelter of cliffs, home to hundreds of birds famed for their edible nests used in bird’s nest soup. Return to the boat.
By 13.00 we arrive at Kho Kradan and its white sandy beaches. Free time for swimming and snorkeling.
By mid-afternoon, we continue our discovery journey to our next destination: Koh Mook, composed of impressive limestone cliffs formed over millions of years ago. These karst rocks are covered with a thin layer of soil which allows thick vegetation to grow on top, adding to their picturesque appeal. Last visit of the day will take you to the stunning Emerald Cave Lagoon before returning to the pier.
Expected arrival time back to the mainland is about 17.30, after which you will be transferred to your hotel.
Day 4. Koh Lanta - Krabi (B/-/-)
Free time (room is available until noon) until your transfer back to Krabi Airport.
