I am in Koh Lanta now. I took an overnight bus from Bangkok with only 10 other people. It was great to be able to spread out over the bus and able to recline your seat right back. I actually got some sleep.
Another mini-bus ride from Krabi and two ferry crossings and I arrived to Koh Lanta. It is low season here, so it’s very quiet. At least I have the pool to myself. Internet is pretty slow here and although I would like to stay longer I have quite a bit to get done. I think I might check out some of the beaches also around Krabi before heading further south to Malaysia.
There are more Muslims in southern Thailand and I couldn’t even buy a beer at the mini-mart near my hotel.
