Everytime of year is a good time of year to come to Koh Lanta, but what if you want to come in Green Season?
Lets take a look at 11 reasons why it is a good time to come
The accommodation prices drop by up to 50% and you can get great bargains for both short and long term rentals
You don’t have to fight with other tourists over the sunbeds, or a search for a private spot at the beach. You get the beach all to yourself.
Visiting Koh Lanta in the green season is a great opportunity to get to know the locals, and take part in their daily lives. Locals and kids will go out of their way to make your stay memorable.
The temperatures drop as southwesterly winds bring wetter weather from the indian ocean. The increase in rain helps revitalise the island to its tropical lushness, everything regrows and the cool wet spells brings relief from the heat of the dry season.
The sunsets are even more colorful and magical after stormy weather
Its possible to go diving three to four times a week, depending on the weather. As with the dry season, you might be able to see whale sharks or Manta Rays. Another great advantage is you will probably get the whole dive site to yourself, avoiding the crowds of the dry season.
On rainy days you have a great excuse to lay in a hammock and read a book, get a three hour massage and spa treatment, or simply get some stuff done from KoHub – the islands only coworking space which is always open 24hrs a day.
Although some restaurants close for the green season to get a well deserved holiday, many family owned restaurants stay open. You can go to the islands best restaurants without having to wait for a table, and you will be served straight away!
The mangrove forest is wild and green and the islands rainforest is shown at its best. Go for a jungle walk to one of the islands otherwise empty waterfalls and have it all for yourself!
Because there are less tourists, it gives you more flexibility – so you don’t have to sign up days in advance to join a yoga session or Thai cooking class. Simply do what you feel like, in your own time.
KoHub provides the perfect tropical space with fast wifi all year around. At KoHub you will always be able to find a quiet spot when you need to focus, but you will also be surrounded by a great community of digital nomads when you want to socialize. KoHub offer communal lunches, trips and excursions, fitness activities, quiz nights and other fun activities.
