More to see in Ko Lanta Island
Ko Lanta Island is a perfect destination for those who have always wanted to try themselves in the local national kind of sport – single combat. It’s Muay Thai, to be precise. Professional trainers – some of who are ex- or current national champions – work in the Lanta Muay Thai Gym and train grownups and children regardless of a level of physical training. You won’t become a great boxer just on a week, of course, or even in a month, but you can do it just for your own pleasure and then continue after you come back home. You can also watch battles between professional sportsmen on the Williams Stadium near the Long Beach every Sunday. Maybe you’re more found of nature? Then Khao Mai Kaew Caves are an ideal choice for you (only if you don’t suffer from claustrophobia). The cave-chain is tens of kilometers long; the entrance is right in the middle of the island near the Klong Toab Beach. You can enjoy seeing quirky stalactites, stalagmites, and even a quite huge cave lake. Be careful: it’s better to use the services of a professional guide (even if you visit such sights nor for the first time). It’s not that expensive and you will be much safer. If you prefer overground views to the underground ones, you can discover local jungles on foot or by a rented transport. There are various hiking routes of different length so you can easily choose the one you’d like the most. All nature-lovers have to visit the local Mu Koh Lanta … Read further

Shopping, streets and outlets

There are diverse goods made of Thai silk of high quality. For instance, a proper silk shirt would cost around baths. You can distinguish it from a fake one by a perfectly smooth surface (what is absolutely untypical for a product from the real silk). Another good idea for a present is a snake or crocodile skin. But be careful and don’t buy it directly as you could a simple bag made of a cow skin for the … Open
