Our next stop was Ko Lanta. We didn’t quite accommodate the timing from traveling from Khao Sok to Ko Lanta, and didn’t arrive to the ferry in time. We ended up getting a hotel last minute in the Ao Nang area of Krabi. Our ferry ride out took a while, but we had great views on the way.
Our hotel was on the southern tip of Ko Lanta, in what we discovered was a muslim town. Our view was pretty nice. There were loud call to prayers each morning and night… that was a first for me

We ended up going to the same restaurant on the beach each night (it was a very small town). They had a fire show each night.

At this point, we were pretty much professional monkey feeders, so Lisa went and bought some bananas to feed to them. Note the “Maybe this wasn’t a good idea” at the end
Turns out, these monkeys were a little more wild than the previous ones we fed.
The next morning, we went on a four island tour. This is the village we were staying in, from the boat (Kantiang Beach)
Our first stop was snorkeling/diving off of these islands
Getting ready to snorkel!
The next stop was the “emerald cave.” It is a mountain island, with a “secret” beach in the center. You swim through a cave for a ways, and emerge into a beach enclave, surrounded by cliffs.
Swimming through the cave
The actual name of the cave is Morakot Cave. It is referred to as “emerald cave” due to the color of the water
Behind us is the end of the cave that you swim through to reach the beach.
The next stop on the tour was Ko Kradan. This was exactly what I pictured Thai beaches to look like

The next stop on our tour was Ko Ngai. It was nice, because there weren’t many people here
