We were in the Old Town for shopping, you can find a lot of shops and a lot of local handmade things for good prices. You must go through all the shops.....

A must visit when in Ko Lanta. Small, kaid back village with only 1 or 2 streets, but with lots of cozy restaurants (overlooking the sea and islands around) and original shops. Can catch a boat to surrounding islands.

It's so worth a visit. Unusual, quaint and distinctly different from other Thai locations. Good for shopping but not always bargains so know your prices. Amazing gem if you carry on down the main road to nearly the end of the road. A quaint coffee...More

Different buildings, but the same products as everywhere else in Thailand. It’s just one short street..

Great place for a quick stopover. Heaps of restaurants, cafes and little shops. Beautiful scenery in most restaurants, as they are placed on the ocean.

This is a very peaceful town. You should select a hotel to stay overlooking the sea. Rent a bike for around 250 BHT a day and drive. Food is cheap and restaurant locations are beautiful

Tuk Tuk are easily available throughout the island, u will see them by the roadside as well. Probably just need to haggle the price abit, keep it within THB90-150 one way.

Best way is to rent a car or scooter, it was really cheap. But it is possible to get a taxi. Your hotel will definitely help you with thay information.
