Driving to Koh Lanta (self-drive and taxi)
It is possible to bring a car to the islands. To drive to Ko Lanta from Krabi, head south on Route 4 in the direction of Trang. A few kilometres past Klong Thom, there is a signposted turning on the right (Route 4206) for Hua Hin pier, some 30km further at the end of the road. (If driving from Trang, this sign will be on the left, a few kilometres after Klong Pon village, as you head north on Route 4 to Krabi.)
Once you get to the end of the road, you will come to Hua Hin pier. The crossing is made in two stages, first to Ko Lanta Noi, nearest the coast, then from the other side of this island to Ko Lanta Yai. When you arrive in Ko Lanta Noi, turn right and follow the road until you see a sign on your left for the next pier. The last ferry leaves Hua Hin pier at 10pm every night.
