How To Travel Around Koh Lanta From Villa Issara
You will find many enjoyable things close to the villa with in easy walking distance. However Koh Lanta is quite a big island, around 35 km long, so for a stay of more than a couple of days renting a car, motorbike or tuk tuk would be advised. You can hire them on daily or weekly basis and the villa manager will be happy to help and organise these rentals for you when you arrive on Koh Lanta.
If you are not comfortable with a bike or car then you can easily travel back and forth on Koh Lanta by using the local tuk tuk drivers. However even after negotiating a good price this option does start to become expensive as each ride is charged per person. To find a tuk tuk driver just wait next to the road and wave one down. When you are in Saladan Village, the main Koh Lanta shopping area, there are many tuk-tuks waiting on the main road, near to the 7-11. If there is a group of you or it’s late at night, it’s probably best to call a taxi instead – see our page on Taxis, Tuk Tuks and Hiring Motorbikes on Koh Lanta for phone numbers and more info.
Things To Do On Koh Lanta
