Overview
More
Lanta Old Town is a small village on Ko Lanta's East Coast in Krabi Province. Many years ago, Ko Lanta's Old Town acted as the port and commercial center for the island and provided safe harbor for Arabic and Chinese trading vessels sailing between the larger ports of Phuket, Penang and Singapore. Today, Old Town is the district capital; it has a post office, police station, Buddhist temple, Chinese temple and the island's hospital as well as a long pier.

Old town was a great contrast to the west side of Koh Lanta. Some really lovely shops and fabulous views from most restaurants.

We love riding our bikes around to Old Town on each trip to Koh Lanta. The old buildings, the views from the pier and a relaxing ride to and from. Worth a visit.
