Booked over Hotel counter.Per pax B900 include a bottle of water n fruits.About 3 hrs activity so best in the morning or around 3 noon ,best to avoid the 12 noon sun which is at the hottest.The car will pick u frm the hotel.
Quite fun to ride on this gentle giant although the journey is a bit short.It is like sitting on a gentle swaying hammock.When the elephant reaches the resting point ,we had a guide (include in the package) to take us on a trek by foot to the waterfall around 1.5 hrs.On the way he show us local faunas....monkeys.,monitor lizards as well as some local plants supposedly having aphrodisiac value.Then backtrack downstream to the elephant resting point and back to base via top of elephant.

Here is where you can book and purchase day trips from boat tickets to bus tickets.
Also, food can be found.
Local products can also be found. Certain things you can bargain and certain things not !

Sea kayaking is one of the many options that one can choose from when visiting Ko Lanta.
It started early morning, pick-up @ 8:30am and then a short drive to the pier and onto to the vechicle ferry which took about 15 minutes to cross. Now, a short drive to the pier where a long-tail boat is waiting for us. We got onto the boat and off we go to Ko Talabeng where we will kayak for at least 2 hours [i was not wearing a watch and not too worried about time], I must say, its hard work !!! I shared the kayak with the guide and I must say, he did quite a bit of kayaking. Shortly, it was lunch time and we again boarded the long-tail boat and got back onto the mainland where we had lunch. Local food and not missing tom yum !
Before heading back to Ko Lanta, we had a 40 minutes stop at a small island named, Ko Boo Boo, a place to stay for a bit if you are looking for a quite environment. There was several painters doing their art work.
It was a long ride back to Saladan pier and it was a hot shinning day. After all the kayaking and the yummy lunch, you tend to feel a wee bit tired and sleepy...
Overall, it was a fun day outing @ sea.

Ko Rok is a twin island which is about a one hour ride by speedboat from Ko Lanta. It has the most beautiful beach I've seen in Thailand and snorkelling out there is amazing.
As it is a National Park, there are no hotels/guesthouses on the islands, but you can camp.
Ko Rok is also home to a big lizard species (forgot the name...).
I booked the tour with Opal Travel. It included the transfer by speedboat, a great lunch & free drinks and snorkelling equipment for 1300 THB. Highly recommended!

Another "must do" when staying on Ko Lanta is the 4-islands tour. There are different operaters who do this trip. Our trip was organized by the guesthouse we stayed. The organisation was lousy (as was the guesthouse), we were just a few people on this trip, but they didn't have enough snorkelling gear... Which was a shame as the snorkelling around these islands was fabulous!
We visted Ko Muk where you swim through a cave and come to a nice little beach (just like in "The Beach" by Alex Garland), Ko Ma and Ko Chuak with colourful soft coral and fish and Koh Ngai with a long sandy beach.

Ban Saladan, on the Northern end of Ko Lanta, is the village where the ferries arrive.
This is the place to go for shopping and the restaurants there are also worth a visit. Lots of dive schools and travel agencies have their offices here aswell.
