Getting There

Minivans from Krabi Town, Trang, and Phuket make connections to Ko Lanta Yai via two vehicular ferries: one from the mainland to Ko Lanta Noi and across the island by car before another ferry to Ko Lanta Yai. Most transport stops in the small town of Saladan near the ferry pier on the northern tip of Lanta Yai. From Saladan, catch a pickup truck ride to the resort of your choice. Contact Kanokwan Tour (Lanta office: tel. 07568-4419) or Lanta Transport Co. (tel. 07566-8120), if you need to make transportation arrangements.

Destination Air's (tel. 07632-8637-9; www.destinationair.com) amphibious Cessnas can fly you from Phuket to your destination on Ko Lanta in a matter of minutes; check availability and pricing well in advance.
