KOH LANTA, BETTER LATE THAN NEVER!

Goodmorning peeps!

Where have we left off? To be honest it’s not a problem if you lost track of our conversation, given the long break I’ve taken from my last post.

The year which just ended was really tough as far as I’m concerned, and I really needed to take some time off. In the end, when you are a mother, you have a job which takes most of your day and no matter what you also decide to dive head-first into a project in which you believe in, you gotta face stress sooner rather than later!

When I left for my trip in Thailand, I promised myself I would have followed the blog full time anyway, but once I was able to post my first issue, I almost immediately noticed that I really wanted too much from myself, that it was time to catch a break, and finally relax a little. And that’s how it went.

I like the idea of being able to tell you about Thailand lived through my own eyes, sensations, without excessive chatter, I would simply like to tell you about my adventure in this wonderful land, remembering the stops I’ve had in it.

In my first post I was in Krabi, where I stayed 4 nights before leaving for Koh Lanta. I reached Koh Lanta through ferry, with 2 hours of navigation.

Koh Lanta was depicted to me as an unaltered paradise, but once I got to the port, the impression I got was really the opposite. I have to tell you immediately that I did not particularly love this island, but, due to not having visited it thoroughly, I will leave it a small benefit of the doubt, even though I’m not quite convinced of it.

The water is fairly clear, but definitely not Caribbean-clear! Besides, there’s the low tide problem, which makes it not very accessible many times over the day.

ACCOMODATION

We stayed at the Lanta Emerald Resort, where the accomodations are some pretty bungalows with sight on the swimming pool and the garden, the sea is a few steps away. The resort’s restaurant directly faced the beach, and it was wonderful to dine with that view, especially during sunset. Quite romantic!

Not to mention the small and cute massage center on the beach, an oasis of relax which is difficult to refuse!

The beach during sunset, shame for the low tide…

Massage center on the beach, approximately 7 euros for one hour of complete massages.

EXCURSIONS

The great thing about Koh Lanta was the possibility of having the excursion which I wanted and dreamed about the most. We have spent a day in Koh Rok, two twin islands immersed in the ocean which are true-life paradise on earth. Being able to visit such wonderful and unaltered places (who knows for how long??!!) was truly an unforgettable experience. And obviously there was the snorkeling, discovering corals, anemones and fishes of all colors.

Koh Roh is only 1 hour of speed boat away from Koh Lanta, if you happen to be around, go there without thinking twice, you definitely won’t regret it!ornella nelly-the ladybug's beauty-koh lanta-thailandia-viaggio in thailandia-thailandia in gennaio - viaggio in thailandia-come organizzare un viaggio in Thailandia-vacanze di natale al caldo-vacanze al caldo

Koh Rok, please leave me here…

CONCLUSION

Maybe 4 days are not enough to fully enjoy an island like Koh Lanta, but nonetheless, it didn’t catch me as I thought it would have. Night life is almost not existent too, and the prices in the small flea markets are excessively higher compared to other locations in Thailand.

New post in a couple days, while next week we will go on with another stop, we go from the peace of Koh Lanta to the chaotic and bulky Patong!

A kiss.
