This cave was one of those "I-have-to-conquer-my-fear" adventures. Our friends came to this island the year before and told us to go to the cave, but then he proceeded to show me some pictures....of the spiders INSIDE the cave.... I was far from sold on this cave thing.
I did it though, and I don't regret it, although I did come VERY close to having a panic attack when I saw the spiders up close....... they are BIG. (getting the chills just writing this) blaghhh.....
some of the thing you can anticipate if you decide to do this are a good hike to the entrance, some very tight squeezes through some parts of the cave, muddy clothes, spiders, Bats, a pool in the pitch blackness of the cave if you want to cool off, and a really cool Stairway/ladder on your way back. It is worth it though. I am really glad I did it. Hope you enjoy if you plan to go!
Picture is of some of the bats that we saw....
Rent a bicycle and explore the south of the island where you will find villages that are rarely visited by tourists. Many of the houses are built on stilts over the ocean.
When i was in Ko Lanta it was nice to sit on the beach early evening and watch the terrific sunsets.
Lovely snorkeling, fine white sand, beautiful beach, an hour speed boat ride from Koh Lanta. tour is 1,200 baht per person
Well we went to Ko Lanta towards the end of the wet season. It was very wet. However we did get a glimpse of Sun now and then. Drop what ever you are doing-go enjoy the beach!
This is the little town at the pier where you have to take the ferry. Saladan is a nice place where you can find some little shops where you can buy your souvenirs, beach stuff or some books.
If u are bored u can basically walk along the long beach and stop at any bungalow areas they have there and do what we vters do best... snap photos or socialize....
Its an beautiful island and we spent most of our time at Long beach...its a very long strech. We did a morning stroll and a return walk takes about one hour.
From Ko Lanta island there are some boat trips that you can do.
1- Emerald Cave
2- Ko Rok island
3- 4 islands
4- Hin Daeng & Hin Muang (Divers spot)
Maybe I seek for none heavy activity while I am here. I went just enjoying the salt sea water and although I am not sun bathing still my skin toasted.
This is one of the better beaches on Ko Lanta. The landscape is flat and sand very powdery and HOT !! The waters here are really nice as well :-)
A good place to sunbathe !
One thing I relish about my few hours here was seeing how families could come and holiday here.
This little boy was a few metres away from where I was and man ! was he enjoying himself :-)
This is one activity that I do alot when traveling solo. I had quite alot of time on my hands ~ so it was writing my journal as well as postcards to friends all over.
