Point of Interest
“Take a trip around the mangroves and nearby islands with Longtail Boat and Kayak. All trips here are guided. You can book in advance and the tour company will come pick you up at your accommodation. If you just want to look around and take a short tour of the mangroves you can just turn up but if you want a day tour then best to book in advance. ”

Locality
“Saladan Town is the main town on the island. Good place to visit at night for shopping in the markets or eating at one of the many restaurants. Street food is available here in high season at the walking street night market. In low season there are a few food stalls with street food but no walking street. Also here is where the banks, money exchange and Lanta Mart supermarket is located. ”
