Mu Koh Lanta National Park actually concists of several islands covering 134 km² and there is more to see on the some of other islands than on main island. Most people visiting Koh Lanta does not know there is a national park in the island up until they arrive and ask around about activities and attractions in the island. They would normally be told that there is a national park at south end of the island.
The national park consists mainly of rugged hills covered with 20 km² rain-forest and beach forest along the coast lines at Koh Lanta Yai and Koh Ngai. Other islands like Mai Ngam, South Mai Ngam and Ngu islands are covered with mangrove forest.
The national park is home to nomadic sea gypsies called Chao Le. They are well known for their traditions of setting boats a drift during the full moon in June and November, according Chao Le belief to drive out evil and bring good luck.
The parks main attraction and activities are many white beaches, trails, viewpoints and some very impressive caves. The smaller islands are popular diving sites for both snorkellers and scuba divers with possibility to see some of exciting tropical marine life found in the Andaman Sea.
For visitor safety and marine life recovery, most of smaller islands are closed for visitors in rainy season from 16th May until 31st October every year.
As of 22 April 2016, the Koh Lanta bridge which connects the two islands of Koh Lanta Noi and Koh Lanta Yai is finally open. Note that there is still no bridge from the Krabi mainland to Koh Lanta Noi.
The Koh Lanta bridge is now open after years of work. However, you still cannot drive direct from Krabi to Koh Lanta as the bridge only connects the islands of Koh Lanta Noi and Koh Lanta Yai. A car ferry continues to operate between Krabi and Koh Lanta Noi.
Koh Lanta Old Town, located on Koh Lanta East coast, was once the island main port for trade. Now Lanta Old Town is a charming place to visit which looks and feels like it is stood still in time.
Lanta Old Town was originally a sea gypsy settlement. Over the decades it transformed into a village influenced by trade. Now you can enjoy many shops, restaurants and homes built on stilts above the sea level. This is great when the tide is in and also overlooks other islands and the mainland allowing breathtaking views.
The Phi Phi Islands are located in Thailand, between the large island of Phuket and the western Strait of Malacca coast of the mainland. The islands are administratively part of Krabi province.
Phi Phi Island is Thailand's island-superstar. It's been in the movies. It's the topic of conversation for travelers all over Thailand. For some, it's the only reason to touchdown in Phuket. Even with all the hype, it doesn't disappoint. Phi Phi's beauty is a large chunk of the allure. The islands, when approached by boat, rise from the sea like a fortress. Sheer cliffs tower overhead, then give way to beach-fronted jungle. It's love at first sight.
Emerald pool or 'Sra Morakot' in Thai is a truly wonderful natural pool in the middle of the forest filled with glistening clear spring water.
Sra Morakot is almost a round pool about 1-2 meters deep and 20-25 meters in diameter. The color of water changes into pale green or emerald upon the reflections of the sunlight. The water of Sra Morakot comes from the spring-fed pool known as “the Blue Pool”, 600 meters away on the hill. Sulfurous, alkaline water from the Blue Pool wells up and flows through cracks in the rocks to cascade down to Emerald Pool. Consequently, the water is always clear because of the high calcium carbonate that makes all the suspended particles settle to the bottom. In addition, algae cannot grow in the water.
Emerald Cave (Morakot Cave) - The cliff ranging at the west of Koh Mook is the site of Morakot Cave.
