Despite its popularity, the sandy beaches manage to remain semi-deserted, even in peak season. Vast expanses of unspoilt beaches beckon visitors who are willing to sacrifice amenities for uncompromised beauty and seclusion.
The island’s picturesque landscapes and vibrant culture makes for unforgettable holidays. Whether lounging beachside or venturing out into the island’s unknown, there are plenty of activities that pique visitors’ interests. Diving and snorkelling are among the must-do activities, however, paddle boarding, surfing, yoga and even cooking classes are very popular.

With the hot, humid and generally unpredictable weather in Koh Lanta, it’s wise to bring a variety of clothes to accommodate the ever-changing conditions. Casual, lightweight, breathable clothes are ideal, since temperatures can be extremely hot during high travel season.
At only eight degrees above the equator, the sun here is strong. Protect against sunburn and heat exhaustion by bringing plenty of sunscreen, hats, sunglasses and lip balm.
Bring a small first aid kit with water purification tablets, rehydrating solutions, and other pain medications and antibiotics. Here, insect repellent is essential. Make sure to bring a couple bottles of strong repellent and cream to sooth bites, because the mosquitoes are ubiquitous and persistent.
Pack plenty of waterproof bags to protect personal belongings from the water. A pocket-sized torch is essential. It may also be a good idea to bring a water bottle. Koh Lanta also experiences occasional power outages, so bring back-up batteries.
Koh Lanta has a tropical climate that means that the weather is hot and humid. There are really only two seasons – the hot and dry season and the cool and wet season. However, even the “cool” season is pretty hot, as year-round temperatures rarely drop below 27°C. Daytime temperatures throughout the year average between 28°C and 32°C. The nights are slightly cooler, but not by much. With that said, the weather in Koh Lanta can be extremely unpredictable.
The dry season extends from November to April. This is also the high travel season. Like clock-work, March and April experience a heat wave with temperatures reaching 37°C. So, the absolute best time to visit is during January and February when temperatures aren’t nearly as hot. The rest of the year, May to October, comprises the rainy or “green” season, during which time many restaurants and tourist businesses close. While rainfall is most prevalent during this time, there are occasional showers during the dry season.
The duration of your stay is more than 60 days, but don't worry that's fine. We just want to make sure you get the best possible price.
