Koh Lanta has now been our home for 10 years, a lovely island which has managed to maintain its very own personality and special qualities despite the fact that more and more people have discovered the island?s attractions during the past few years. This is a place where you can unwind and enjoy the relaxed atmosphere, the good (and cheap) food and the beautiful beaches. On Lanta there is still no sight of the hectic commercialism that most tourist places around the world seem to think is what all holiday makers crave. One thing that has changed over the past few years is that your choice of resorts and restaurants has increased significantly. Today you can choose from the original street vendor stall to the real five star luxury restaurants. Just take your pick! Of course there are lots of people looking for discotheques, girlie bars and McDonalds, but for these people there are definitely other more suitable places to visit than Lanta. Here, we just enjoy the peace and the serenity of this beautiful island: take a leisurely walk along the beach, a trek in the jungle, or, of course, go diving or snorkeling. In the evening you can enjoy great food and drinks at one of the many bars and restaurants along the beach from where you can watch the most beautiful sunsets: Lanta sunsets envelope the entire island in a pink haze. Even though we all share the same Sun we often wonder if there is a very special Sun just for Lanta!
