We finish our time in Southeast Asia in Thailand’s south – the island of Koh Lanta. This is a great place to relax, go for a swim, and do some island hopping.
So, how did we get from Yangon, Myanmar, to Koh Lanta, Thailand? We got a flight from Yangon to Bangkok, and chilled there for a few days. From Bangkok we caught a long bus ride to Koh Lanta in the south. The bus was around 20 hours or so. Quite a good distance!
In Koh Lanta there are great day tours to visit some spectacular beaches and snorkeling reefs. In a few spots you get to swim through some caves and find a secluded cove surrounded by tropical jungle. Very cool!
We spent a bunch of time working on the sun-tan and drinking some hard-earned beer. Backpacking is tough work after all! This is a little break after our many activities in Myanmar, and our upcoming adventures in China. We will spend about 1 month in China, and then 3 weeks in Japan. Onward and forward!
