Lazin' in Lanta
Trip Start Sep 18, 2004
23Trip End Dec 20, 2004
Lanta's definately a bit cheaper than Phi Phi, but not for much longer by the looks of things ! a few backpacker bungalows left - surrounded by big resorts and posh bungalows with air con and pools.....
Had a couple of days at Andaman Bay - very rustic with attached but outdoor bathrooms - the floor of which was made of shells ! Great being able to see and hear the sea from your shower - but the very persistent mossies eventually drove us out.
(phil has a set of bites on his bum in exactly the same pattern as the number five on a dice - tee hee). The Reggae house down the beach from there had lovely fruit shakes and curries, and double hammocks that we nearly moved into.
Currently residing at the Lanta New Coconut - a bit less mossie ridden and again with REALLY great food. Were supposed to be going diving again today but Phil got poisoned by a chicken wrap yesterday - so a bit too snotty to equalise. We postponed until tomorrow and have been out and about on a little motorbike (sharon mark 2).
Suzy found a horse to ride and this evening has been thundering up and down the beach at sunset (see vid).
