The L in Ko Lanta is for “LAID BACK” – Thailand – 2015 – Part 5 of 5

It isn’t the Delta hub at ATL. Write the airport designator backwards and you get LTA. No, not Tzaneen in South Africa, I mean the real LTA. The L in Ko Lanta for “Laid Back”. For our final three days of this splendid sunny trip, we spent our daylight hours traveling charming and chillax Ko Lanta by motorbike and longboat. Those transportation methods are the best ways to get around this island paradise.DSC07071 (1280x853)

It is time for a swim.DSC07035 (1280x853)

This remote little island used to be a storage area for pirates way back before TSA was doing screening for flights. Like hundreds of years ago.   Pretty cool island.   You swim through a very dark cave (which is the only way through at cooperating tide level times) and get to this beautiful little enclosed beach that used to be a volcano millions of years ago. Now it is tourist attraction and I’m not disclosing where it is at.DSC07020 (1280x853)

Go ducklings! GO!DSC07041 (1280x853)

Rock and Roll Pad Thai is the place to go on Ko Lanta for the best pad thai. Chef is the nicest guy, in a rock band has played all over Thailand and beyond. It was fun watching him cook.DSC07181 (1280x853)

The vast amount of unique ingredients they use in Thailand combine so vividly, each dish is a culinary journey. It was too good so we ordered a second round of pad thai.DSC07187 (1280x853)
