There is no better way to kick back and relax dreaming of what to do whilst lying in a hammock.
You know tho! you won’t achieve anything that day as time slips you by . You will contemplate the energy needed to roll out of the Hammock and realise you might as well stay lounging listening to some great tunes, reading a book or simply hanging out with your friends.
I went to Koh Lanta’s old town which is found on the East Coast of Koh Lanta. Its a great little town with homes built on stilts jutting out in to the sea and has a Chinese culture as you will see by many lanterns.
In the middle of the main road you will find Hammock House which offers a unique selection of comfy, handwoven hammocks with designs and colours you won’t find anywhere else. They offer indoor and outdoor hammocks, travel or family sized, hanging chairs, parachutes and extra special V-weaves
Hammock House is owned by Butch and Jeab 2 great people who have created a perfect atmosphere to there shop and will listen and advise on what you need. Why not pop over any day of the week and have a chat with them, if you not sure of how to arrive in Old Town hire a motorbike and follow the Lanta Biker Map which can be found in many shops. On this map are clear instructions or check out the map of Old Town below. If your really struggling call them on 075 697 098 and ask for directions.
Not only do you get to purchase a Hammock which you can take home and use to remember you holiday but it gives a sustainable source of income for disadvantaged groups in rural Thailand.
