Koh Lanta is one of the dazzling islands that form part of southern Thailand. It is located in the Krabi province, which is known worldwide for its wonderful beaches. If you want to go sailing, this will be the perfect destination because you can be assured that the place will not be too crowded with tourists because it is not as accessible as the other islands.
This island was originally a haven for merchants or traders from its neighbours including Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia. It is also located near many urbanized parts of Thailand like Phuket, Phi Phi, and Krabi, so most people who come in the country would want to go to this island for sailing, scuba diving and many other activities that involve marine life. Being an island, it has legendary sunsets and exotic coral reefs. In fact, it actually has nine beaches throughout its shores.
