Lanta Old Town, also known as Sri Raya (in Thai), is located on the nature-rich, southeast coast of Koh Lanta, only 15 minutes away from the beaches and tourist areas on the west coast — yet far enough to allow the village to retain its traditional culture and charm.
The people in Old Town, originally the island’s main trading center, are fishermen families who have lived in the town for generations. The area is a study in cultural diversity with three distinct groups of people – the seas gypsy people of the Urak Lawoi clan, Thai Muslims and Thai Chinese – coexisting in harmony for over 200 years.
Today, the fishing village has taken on a ‘bohemian’ feel in the day when tourists from the other side come over to explore some of the island’s funkiest shops, restaurants, cafes and bars. The town has limited accommodations, but there are several villa rental options and a few bed and breakfasts. There is also now a small community of foreigners that call Old Town home and many visiting boats moor in the safe harbor.
The seaside homes – typically called Pole Houses – are built on stilts directly over the water and overlook an incredible harbor view and an array of small tropical islands in the near distance. The sunrises and sunsets are famous among locals in this sleepy late night town that hosts the annual Lanta Lanta Festival in March.
