The Ultimate Girls’ Getaway to Ko Lanta, Thailand

The Ultimate Girls’ Getaway to Ko Lanta, Thailand

“What’s your favorite place?”

I get asked that question at least once a day and often several times. It’s not an easy question to answer, travelers can attest. Our lists are long and we can’t pick one place above all.

Yes, it’s true — I actually have a favorite place in the world now. It’s a little place called Koh Lanta, Thailand.

I first visited Koh Lanta just a few weeks into my long-term travels in 2010. I fell immediately in love.

Koh Lanta hits the development spot perfectly. Much of the island has a rustic feel, characterized by jungle huts and a few mountains. Prices are lower than the more popular neighboring islands. The people are incredibly friendly. And the sunsets? THE BEST ANYWHERE.
