    TRAIN TICKETS

    by mamasan69 Updated May 20, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When purchasing train tickets, or any tickets for that matter, try and be sure of what you are paying for. My brother and I thought we purchased a first class air conditioned train from Trang to Hua Hin. What we got was not first class, and we didn't have the best trip as it turned out.

    Unique Suggestions: We managed to try and have a good time on the train, but we did get ripped off on what we paid for.
    On that note, we did meet some nice people on the train and made the best of it all (see album on hompage for more on this train ride).

    Fun Alternatives: I don't know what to suggest, except to pay close attenton to where and who you buy your tickets from. We thought the deal was good, but once you are in Trang it is a little too late to go back to Ko Lanta and complain.

    Ko Lanta National Park Headquarters. Ko Lanta

    by pfsmalo Written Apr 15, 2016

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The whole of Ko Lanta is part of the National Park area, but the HQ is situated right at the southern tip of the island. To go into the Marine park costs 200 baht per person + 200 baht for your scooter (almost the only means of getting there). The main interest of this part are the monkeys that abound here, but you can see andd feed them at the entrance gate without actually going in. There are a few bungalows inside the park area that can be rented, and a 2 kms trail over rocks, but there are no other activities or things to see. 600 baht is expensive for doing nothing......

    Unique Suggestions: The main interest are the monkeys that gather at the entrance, so you may as well not go in, take your pics of the monkeys and leave, saving yourself al those bahts.

    Fun Alternatives: At this end of Lanta are the best beaches on the island, no rocks, clear water and very, very few people. There are one or two bars and resorts where you can chill out, have a drink, borrow their sunbeds and parasols and laze about for a couple of hours.

    Waterfalls - without water!!!!

    by jorgegomes Written Jun 1, 2004

    The place called waterfalls is on the south part of the island. Due to the roads its difficult to get there.
    The distance from the mainroad to the waterfalls is approximately 3Km, but the main problem is: THE WATERFALLS ARE DRY!!!
