Traditionally the start of the high season on Koh Lanta, November sees a mixed bag of weather – there are welcome cool temperatures and lots of sun, but there can be sporadic outbreaks of rain if the monsoon season hasn’t fully cleared away since October.
However, as the island fully re-awakes from Low Season, all businesses are open again from November 1st and transport links to the island are also increased, with extra passenger ferries arriving during the day. It’s a good idea to book Koh Lanta accommodation online before arriving in November, as the island gets popular quite rapidly with the beginning of high season.

Another big attraction is the Loi Krathong festival, where krathongs – small floats made of flowers and loaded with incense sticks and small coins – are floated on the seawater as a way of moving on from the past and wishing for good luck. This is also celebrated with the release of huge candle-powered paper lanterns into the night sky, which is truly spectacular. The exact date for Loi Krathong changes each year, but it’s worth checking as the island becomes more popular over that three day period.
