The Bridge is open!

At Midnight last night, 22nd April 2016, the bridge between Lanta Noi and Lanta Yai was opened.

Now instead of catching 2 car ferries to the island, if coming by motor vehicle from the mainland, it is only necessary to catch one car ferry from the mainland to Lanta Noi. Upon reaching Lanta Noi, you can now drive straight onto Lanta Yai, saving anywhere from 20 minutes to over an hour (when the queues were long).

It was opened by the Head Minister of Krabi, with a huge party, Thai bands and fireworks helping us all celebrate this long awaited bridge.

Hopefully, this will significantly shorten the journey from the mainland for our guests, and ourselves!
