Today we set our alarms for 8.15 am so we could get up and go to the yoga on the beach... We decided to scrap that idea and sleep till 10 instead. Ellen and Hanna are always up and organised earlier than us and by the time we were organised they had hired bikes and were cycling around the island. Koh Lanta has lots of different beaches and jungle treks and the best way to see the island is by renting a motorbike... we are all too scared to hire motorbikes and there are no quad bikes for rent here so Lisa and I decided we should also try and get bikes too. We walked for about an hour going in and out of all tour agencies and hostel/hotels (a lot of them rent out motorbikes etc too) we are pretty sure Ellen and Hanna got the last working bikes on the whole island as nowhere had bikes for us to rent. Walking in the heat proved too much and we jumped in a tuk tuk to Kantiang Beach about a 20 minute journey from where we were. I love the journeys in tuk tuks and cabs, you always get a nice breeze which you don't when you are walking and you always pass and see so much! We got to Kantiang Beach which was beautiful and a lot quieter than the other beach. We spent a while sunbathing, had something to eat and had an encounter with a hermit crab. I found out later that The Times voted the beach into its list of top 10 beaches in the world! We got a taxi back and sat in the open back seats which was amazing. At night we went to a beach party with the girls .. the music on this island is amazing! The electricity cut out on the whole island when were sleeping aghhh (hence why I have only been able to put this up now)
