Lanta Island, Thailand, 2017

Thailand: a place of wild flavors, gentle people, beautiful landscapes, and stunning oceans. Here are some photos from a Jan. 2017 scuba diving trip during the Chinese New Year where we stayed on Lanta Island, a convenient base with easy access to airports and water vessels, and blessed with beautiful beaches. Lanta Island, known locally as Ko Lanta, is in the extreme south of Thailand near Malaysia, in the Andaman Sea and not far from Phuket. A very relaxed, low-cost place to stay with easy access to great diving. We stayed at the Lanta Island Resort on the beach. Surprisingly inexpensive.
