  • Beautiful little town with many restaurants and shops. Very enjoyable to wander around and visit. Don’t miss the Community Museum.

  • Small and very laid back. I found the old town very lovely and very romantic at night. There are some couple of cool restaurants on stilts.

  • A very peaceful little town with little cafes and restaurants, a pier, an old ship and a lobster statue - a symbol of Koh Lanta’s Old Town. If you stay in Koh Lanta for a couple of days and have some spare time come and visit. Have a relaxing stroll along one Main Street and buy some souvenirs. And you can also shot great photos too)
  • We rented a home for the month in Old Town. This is a sleepy little spot with various shops and a fun market on the weekend. You can buy produce and all the basics. Old Town offers a different feel than the Andaman Sea side of Lanta.
