Our final morning in Koh Lanta has arrived and Krabi is the next stop. We’re pretty sad to wave the island farewell as it’s refreshingly authentic compared to places like Phuket and Phi Phi. There are still hoards of tourists and resorts, but there’s more of a hippy vibe here that you can’t help but get on board with.
Surprisingly out of character, we were two hours early for our ferry to the mainland so we had the chance to briefly explore what Saladan had to offer. Firstly, by walking only 200 metres down the street, we were able to shave 130 baht off our boat ticket prices. That alone has just bought our tasty brunch 5 minutes round the corner from the pier.
We browsed a few cafes but settled on Sincere Guest House & Restaurant. An indication that it’s a great place were the piles of flip flops outside, always a helpful clue…
We’re currently flopped across some cushions, surrounded by the turquoise sea (we can even see it beneath us through the cracks in the floorboards). The food is top notch, cheap, and most certainly ‘safe’ – always a bonus! There’s great WiFi, loads of books to browse, and of course, friendly helpful Thai staff. If you’re lucky enough to be heading to Lanta, we’d absolutely recommend a visit to Sincere Restaurant (we will be jealous).
