Saladan Village on Koh Lanta is situated in the Nortern tip of the Island. This is where all the ferries arrive form surrounding Islands, the car ferry arrives here and also the express transfer service – how ever you arrive on the Island you are met by a stunning scenic village built along the waters edge on stilts above the sea.
Saladan is a very small metropolis of shops, banks, dive operators, tour and travel agencies, pharmacies, Massage and Spa, tailors and surprisingly a lot of optician shops. There is also an interesting night market for paintings, clothes and handicrafts.
One of the biggest attraction in Saldan is its choice of restaurants especially as some are built on stilts over the sea and offer breath taking views of Koh Lanta Noi. For an in depth insight in to Saladans restaurants please enjoy our page on Best Restaurants and Cafes In Saladan.
With only one road in to town its easy to navigate. When you see the road end turn left or right and that will be all the shops and restuarnats which are built over the sea on stilts. This is a fantastic place to watch the sun and moon rise over the mountains. Saladan really comes alive at night and in the high season the police stop all cars entering town for safety. When you want to go home you walk out of town and all the Tuk Tuk drivers will be queing up waiting for you.
