Ban Sala Dan (Saladan Village) is the main village on the island of Koh Lanta, located at the very northern end. It’s where all boats bringing tourists to the island arrive and depart. Saladan is a small, quite sleepy village but it’s worth having a wander around.
There are some beautiful stilt houses built directly over the water, many of which have very pleasant places to eat with a lovely seaview and be able to watch the comings and goings of the boats.
In Saladan you’ll find many restaurants serving different cuisines as well as Thai – they include seafood, pizza, steak, burgers and Indian food. There is also a selection of coffee shops if you need a fix of cappuccino. For more detailed info, see our Best Saladan Village Restaurants And Places To Eat page.
You will also find tailors, opticians, DVD shops, beachwear boutiques, a night market during high season, diving operators, internet shops, banks, pharmacies and clinics not forgetting Serenity Massage and Spa.
