Ko Lanta District - Transportation




The nearest airports are at Krabi, Trang and Phuket. All three airports have direct road and boat connections. Krabi Airport, the most popular one for travel to Ko Lanta, is approximately 10 km from the provincial town and operates international flights to several foreign destinations.


There are only two main roads on Ko Lanta, one in the north-east and another in the south-west, which runs parallel to the beach. On Ko Lanta Noi there is just one main road in the east and a smaller one that links with the ferry pier. On the mainland, Highway 4206 connects with Khlong Thom district, passing Khlong Yang and Koh Klang sub-districts to a public car ferry at Baan Hua Hin.

Ferry Boat

There are regular daily ferry boats operating between Ko Lanta and Krabi, Phuket and Ko Phi Phi. Ferry Boat of Phetpaily daily departs from Klongdao pier of Koh Lanta to Koh Ngai and Koh Mook.
