Koh Lanta, Thailand
Comment 1

3/๓ from Koh Lanta

Scene-setter: Get yer Thai pop on.

Pound-the-table recommendation: Sleep in a tent! Amongst the trees! Relax Bay Resort is pretty resort-y with lots of Northern European families taking their terribly civilized parental leave (that’s 59 weeks at 80% pay, according to our Norwegian friends), but what sets it apart are the two tent rooms. Is glamporous a word?

Back-pocket fact: Several times a day, you’ll hear the beautiful Thai muezzin call throughout the island. Koh Lanta is an ethnographic melting pot whose inhabitants are descended from Thai Chinese, Thai Muslims, and “sea gypsies.”
