Ko Lanta

Posted by Glome on 23/11/2011 at 07:47

Hi,
I'm planning on going to Ko Lanta for Christmas & NewYear, but what I'm struggling to find out is the best way to get back to BKK.My flight leaves on the 3rd Jan at 09:10 so ideally I want to get back to BKKon the evening of the 2nd. Can anyone help & advise the best way to dothis? I have looked at flights but there doesn't seem to be any left, so thisis why I'm now panicking!
I would really appreciate your help.
Thanks

Have you looked at flying out of the Trang airport? It is almost the same distance from Koh Lanta. If that doesn't work, and you're open to other forms of transport(likely in this situation now), bus and train are your options. These sites let you book train tickets online:

Nok Air is full from Trang on Jan-2 but I'm seeing availability on Orient Thai (the only other airline that flies Trang-Bangkok) for 3150 baht, but you better grab it quick!

Only snag is the flight is at 9:20am so you'd have to leave Lanta on Jan-1 and stay a night in Trang (nice town).
