Thailand - Krabi vs. Koh Lanta in March
Hey Nomads -
So I’m looking to leave my current base in Chiang Mai, Thailand to head back down south in March to escape burning season.
I’m looking at staying for a month in either Krabi or Koh Lanta. I already spent a month on Koh Samui which was ok but I’m looking to explore the other side now and it seems this will be a good time of year seasonally to be on those islands.
Here are my main considerations and would love any thoughts:
- Housing - As the islands are much more expensive, I think it would be the most sensible to get an apartment or rental for a month. I got a good deal in Samui when I stayed for a month.
-A/C is a must
- Strong, Hi-speed wifi where I’m staying as I need to do video calls from home
- More walkable (or as much as possible) areas are preferred as I don’t use a motorbike and transportation back and forth to restaurants, etc. can get expensive
Walking distance to the beach would be great but price is a big more important factor
I don’t necessarily care about being near a co-working space as much of my work on video calls requires me to work from home anyway for privacy.
Anyone stayed on Krabi or Koh Lanta & have any suggestions?
