8 Essentials you must pack for your next Koh Lanta Trip - Travel prepared! 

Remember to tailor your packing list to the specific activities and seasons during your visit to Koh Lanta. Whether you're enjoying the sun on the beach, exploring the island's nature reserves, or indulging in its vibrant culture, these essentials will contribute to a comfortable and memorable trip.


Light and Breathable Clothing

Pack a variety of clothing options suitable for warm weather. Lightweight and breathable fabrics like cotton or linen are ideal for the tropical climate. Consider packing a mix of casual wear for daytime excursions and slightly more formal attire for evenings, especially if you plan to explore dining options beyond the beach.


Sun Protection

Sunscreen is a non-negotiable item for your trip to Koh Lanta. Choose a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a high SPF to shield your skin from the intense tropical sun. Don't forget to apply sunscreen to often-overlooked areas like the tops of your feet and the back of your neck. A stylish wide-brimmed hat and UV-protective sunglasses add an extra layer of defence against the sun's rays. This way you can sunbathe all you want during your stay at Avani+ Koh Lanta.


Insect Repellent

While Koh Lanta is generally not heavily plagued by insects, it's wise to carry a reliable insect repellent, especially if you plan to explore the island's natural reserves or venture into the jungle. Opt for a DEET-based repellent or natural alternatives containing essential oils like citronella or eucalyptus.


Swim and Snorkel Gear

Ensure your swimwear is not only comfortable but also suitable for activities like snorkelling. A compact and high-quality snorkelling mask, along with fins, can enhance your underwater exploration experience. If you plan on spending extended hours at the beach, consider a lightweight and quick-drying beach towel for added convenience. Most resorts near Phi Phi Island allow guests to rent out snorkel and diving gear. 


Light Footwear

Footwear should strike a balance between comfort and practicality. Flip-flops or sandals are perfect for the sandy shores, but if you plan on exploring rocky areas or hiking trails, consider packing a pair of sturdy yet lightweight walking shoes. Having versatile footwear ensures you're prepared for various terrains.


Reusable Water Bottle and Water Purification

Stay hydrated by carrying a reusable water bottle. To minimize plastic waste, consider a collapsible or foldable bottle that won't take up much space when empty. For areas where tap water might not be safe, water purification tablets or filtered water bottles provide a convenient solution, allowing you to enjoy safe drinking water wherever you go.


Travel-Friendly First Aid Kit

Customize your first aid kit based on your health needs and any specific activities you have planned. In addition to basics like bandages and pain relievers, include items like motion sickness tablets if you're taking boat trips. Prescription medications and a basic medical guide can be useful, especially if you're travelling to more remote areas.


Lightweight Daypack

A small daypack is an essential accessory for your explorations. Look for one that is compact and lightweight, with enough room for your essentials. Consider features like water-resistant material, multiple compartments, and adjustable straps for added convenience. A foldable daypack can easily fit into your luggage when not in use.
