No longer a forgotten island Koh Lanta today in the highseason is a meeting point for Scandinavians and Germans. But during the low or so called green season it is still very relaxed. "But word about just how great Ko Lanta was has slowly spread and the last few years have seen substantial development on the island", comments travelfish.org. But: "Still, there’s no need for panic: Just because a six-star boutique glistens over the headland doesn't mean all the bamboo shacks have gone the way of the dodo.* The possibiitiesy for diving are worth a mention. Reefs lie off some of the beaches, but dive trips also go out to many islands.
