Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Mu Ko Lanta National Park is a national park in the southern part of Krabi Province, Thailand, consisting of several islands. The two largest islands are Ko Lanta Noi and Ko Lanta Yai. Although both are inhabited, Ko Lanta Yai is the primary tourist destination. The park was established in 1990 and altogether covers 134 km . Ko Lanta was once known by its Malay name, Pulao Satak, which means Long Beach Island. Later, many Thais, both Buddhist and Muslim, moved to the island making the island known as the island of "a million eyes" ("Lanta" in Thai). The name may also be derived from the Javanese "lan-tas," or fish grill (built of wood with a square grill on top where the fish are set in a circle).show more
