In Thailand's south lies the little known island of Koh Lanta, the jewel of the Andaman Sea. Ko Lanta's quiet, laid-back atmosphere offers an ideal get-away for those seeking to escape the masses of tourists that flock to Phi Phi, Phuket or Koh Samui every year to fall prey to the local touts and louts that patrol the beaches and back-alleys there

It is a moot question to ask what came first, the chicken or the egg; similarly one can not say with certainty who are the original Lanta islanders, the sea gypsies or the Chinese. Whereas it is now pretty much confirmed that the Chinese have arrived about a hundred years ago, having recently celebrated their centennial in the old administrative center of Lanta pier, the origins of the sea gypsies are somewhat more obscure. Although they are scattered around various places along the west coast of Thailand, their language leans more towards the Malay than the Thai, yet they are certainly not muslims, their religion is a strange animist, superstitious belief. Yet they are the most honest and hard-working lot on the island, albeit at times a little bit partial to the drink.  Find out more about these colourful people here !
