Long Beach, Koh Lanta, Thailand

Yesterday I mentioned Long Beach on Kecil Island in Malaysia as an off the beaten path travel spot. On Koh Lanta in Thailand is another off the beaten path beach, also named Long Beach.

Unlike Koh Samui, Koh Samet, and Pattaya, Visitors to Long Beach, Koh Lanta report being welcomed into the local community after stays as short as a week. Bars will often stay open until the last customer heads off to bed while the guest houses and bungalows are right near the bars and the beach.

Koh Lanta is on the Western side of Thailand along the Anderman coast. To get there, take a bus to Krabi and then find a boat to the island. Two touts that come recommended are Sita and Bong.
