Stop #6 & 7: Krabi, Thailand & Koh Lanta, Thailand

Continuing our journey in Thailand, we decided to check out Krabi for a few days and hop over to Koh Lanta for a quick visit. What was intended as a quick 3-day stay ended up being a good 6 days in this part of Thailand. Koh Lanta is paradise and island time got us good.

After spending a few days on Krabi, we decided to take a boat over to one of its neighboring islands. A boat ride to Koh Lanta was 300 Baht, or about $9 USD. One of the lesser known islands, which consequently, makes it one of the most serene. And, the perfect place to learn how to ride a moto.

First time riding this pink moto! I ran into a parked bike moments before this photo was taken. I eventually get better at this later on in my travels.

Two bottles of gas (approx. $1 USD each) fill up a tank, which will last for the entire day.

I travel with an Instax camera and snapped a picture of this woman and her daughter. She lives here and runs a gas station/restaurant. We’re Facebook friends now.

Locals playing Sepak Takraw at a park. They use their feet to pass the ball, not their hands. So, you can imagine how high these guys can kick, jump, and flip.

The plastic ball used in Sepak Takraw. I tried passing around the ball with my feet…it was as hard as it looks.

Koh Lanta

This island is the perfect place to escape static noise from a busy city. Its laid-back, rasta vibes allowed me to chill out, sip on beers, swim in the ocean, scooter around, and meet some rad locals. Really, the coolest, most genuine people.

Now, off to Singapore.
