Koh Lanta, Thailand

We stayed at the Koh Lanta Marine Park View Resort through recommendation from another hotel in Krabi, Thailand. Let me just straight out say, this a surely a dimond in the rough. Our 3 day stay became 5, then 7 and finally 11, whereas we easily could have stayed longer if it wasn't for the bigger urge to continue on traveling. The people who worked there were of another kind; they hung out, showed us around the island, partied with us and became like old friends very quickly. Our hotel room faced the breathtaking panoramic view of the bay, where monkeys would occassionally visit.
Down the road we spotted elephants being walked down the street, I've never been so close to an elephant, let alone get to feed it.
We went snorkeling at nearby islands, my favorite being the dark cave you had to swim through with a flash light before entering the most beautiful hidden lagoon.
