Ko Lanta's the coastest with the mostest

Where can you find Thailand's most spectacular beaches? Phuket? Ko Phi Phi? Nope, it's the island district of Ko Lanta (often just called Lanta) that's the coastest with the mostest in Krabi Province. A Ko Lanta vacation rental will very likely put you beachfront and is a great bet for mellow relaxing vibes with older crowds, but still plenty of fun bars, if you fancy. This area's a mix of Buddhists, Muslims, Thai-Chinese and Chao-Le (sea nomads) so there's always something cultural to celebrate.

Meander the market, swim the seas, and munch on tiny conch

Spend some baht at Ban Saladan, the area's central market, which is crammed with seafood stalls and craft shops. Wing shell is the signature dish; dip these tiny conchs in spicy sauce for a tasty Thai treat. If the beaches here don't relax you - but they will - stop at a spa for a famous Thai massage. Snorkle in Koh Haa, which is teeming with fish due to strict conservation practices. Snag a snapper on a long-tail boat or catch some culture at the Krabi Berk Fa Andaman Festival, which kicks off high season every November.

Seek, but ye shan't find a beach that beats Ko Lanta's

You can travel the world and not find better beaches than Lanta's. Even a kid who's scared of water will love the calm seas near Kor Kwang or Prae Ae, a.k.a. Long Beach. The latter is a stretch of gorgeous sand that, although popular, somehow always feels peaceful. Steer south to Mu Ko Lanta National Park, which has incredible caves and the Khlong Chak Waterfall. You'll get a real feel for Krabi's diverse culture in Lanta Old Town, a village with Chinese and Thai merchants and fishermen selling handmade crafts and the freshest seafood you've ever tasted.

Lanta's copious showers bring tropical flowers

You'll find 2 seasons in the tropical paradise of a Ko Lanta vacation rental: dry and wet. Low season means really low prices, but also a ton of rain, as May through October is monsoon time. It's also "cooler" then, with temps in the upper 70s. Things start to dry off by November, and high season lasts until April, with the crowds really peaking during the holidays. During dry season, temps hit the upper 80s. Speaking of warm, a dip in the sea is like wrapping yourself in your fave blanket. Water temps are in the 80s year-round.

Beaches so pretty you'll wanna wrap them and take them home

The landscape around Ko Lanta vacation rentals is a literal tropical paradise. Its many beaches have sugary white sand and luminous turquoise waters that you'll never get enough of, unless you move here. The Andaman Sea houses vibrant marine life and coral reefs, and mangroves grow aplenty in Lanta's many inlets and coves. As always, watch for jellyfish and stingrays when swimming. Above ground there are rugged hills and rainforests, so take an eco-tour to admire all the wildlife here, like lizards, frogs, and tropical birds.
