John's Around the World Adventure 2005/2006

Travel time: December 2005 - June 2006  |  by John Davies

Thailand: Koh Lanta Island

Koh Lanta was our first stop in Thailand, an island to the west of the mainland, near Krabi. Koh Lanta was nice, yet not impressive as neighboring islands visited.

Unfortunately, many of the Thai islands on this stretch of coast were those most severely hit by the tsunami. Thankfully Koh Lanta was less affected than other islands, and escaped with only a few casualties and minimal environmental damage.

The trip
 
Description:
Following masses of preperation my trip of a lifetime was finally a reality. Beginning in the adventurous New Zealand, before taking in delights of Australia over Christmas. Bali was next on the agenda, trading in the comfort of the West for drastic cultural differences of East Asia. The modern city of Singapore next acted as a stepping stone for travel over-land through Malaysia and island-hopping around Thailand. My Adventure finally ended amongst the neon scyscrapers of Hong Kong.
