    1) No
    2) Three days on Ko Lanta seems hardly worth it as it is a big island, and I'd be inclined to cancel out one of the destinations and spend a bit longer in each of the remaining spots.
    3) I'd recommend reservations for Ko Phi Phi if you want a decent room - even the rubbish will be pricey there in December.
