The right price for transportation is 50-100THB, about halfway between the island and the old town. The second weekend of March was a 3-day market. The were lots of goods and many choices of food. In the old town, restaurants closed early in the week.

Get a scooter and drive to this Koh Lanta gem! Small city with lovely views from the restaurants and charming atmosphere. A lot of small souvenirs shops, Chinese vibes on the streets and places to eat.

Tuk Tuk are easily available throughout the island, u will see them by the roadside as well. Probably just need to haggle the price abit, keep it within THB90-150 one way.
