Koh Lanta's old town on the east coast is worth a visit. Very different to the west coast. Quiet main street with some local tourist shops and some good restaurants on stilts over the sea with great views of the local islands. Best to arrive before 8pm to eat as this town does not stay open late. After 10pm most places are closing up.

Koh Lanta's National Park with its iconic lighthouse is at the southern tip of the island. Great way to explore here is with motorbike. Some great views and beaches to stop at on the way as well. If you are not keen on taking a motorbike then hire car or taxi will also get you there. Not possible with Tuk Tuk. There is an entrance fee for the park. Normally between 200b & 400b per person. (this often changes) Very nice beach here. Some good snorkeling and a short pathed trek that is signposted. Beware the monkeys here can be aggressive if you have food around. Do not feed them!
