Even though Koh Lanta is in the Krabi region, it is distant away to boast its own section. Lanta will allow divers to access some of the finest diving sites that Thailand has to offer. Krabi has something to offer to everyone; which ranges from calm fringing reefs to the amazing outer rocks. This island also possesses beautiful white sandy beaches, gushing waterfalls and thriving tropical rainforests.
