Overview
More
Lanta Old Town is a small village on Ko Lanta's East Coast in Krabi Province. Many years ago, Ko Lanta's Old Town acted as the port and commercial center for the island and provided safe harbor for Arabic and Chinese trading vessels sailing between the larger ports of Phuket, Penang and Singapore. Today, Old Town is the district capital; it has a post office, police station, Buddhist temple, Chinese temple and the island's hospital as well as a long pier.

It's a good 2-3 hours visit to the Old town Lanta. You can by some souvenirs and have a nice lunch/dinner. If you are tired of the beaches of Lanta, go and see the Old town.

Small little village with beautiful views of the sea. We ate at a restaurant by the pier that had beautiful views and great food. Town is a touristy spot but worth a stop by in your travels.
