I got the inspiration for this trip after reading the book 'Stolen Focus' by Johann Hari. It talks about how we are living in a fast-paced society that constantly amps us up with stress and stimulation, harming our attention span each day. I asked myself, 'How do I slow down in a world that is speeding up?' So, I decided to do something about it. I came up with this trip, which I like to call my ‘getaway retreat trip,’ to give my mind and body a break, use devices less, and have more human interaction. Imagine waking up to a stunning ocean view with the sounds of nature, or sipping coffee while the ocean breeze hits your face. If you're seeking peace in a blend of isolation and immersion in local culture, I believe this might be the place for you. I choose Lanta Island because I recently traveled with friends across the southern Thai islands. During our journey, we revisited Koh Lanta, one of my all-time favorite spots. Being back there, even for just a few days, reminded me why I love it so much. This time, I want to stay longer in Koh Lanta to explore more of this paradise, experience local life up close, and enjoy the quiet atmosphere, taking advantage of the low season when prices are more reasonable. We'll also have regular social events arranged upon our discussion😉, with plenty of weekend activities to choose from: - Beach parties or bar hopping - Day trips to Phi Phi Island, Phuket, or nearby cities - Scuba Diving - Visits to the Elephant Sanctuary
 - Visits Lanta Old Town - Exploring Lanta Island 
- Many many more! So if you: - Prefer a slow-paced travel experience - Love being surrounded by nature - Enjoy meeting people from around the world - Like exploring new places - Are easygoing Then, I believe this trip is PERFECT for you! I want to make this trip a once-in-a-lifetime experience that you won't find anywhere else. I want you to take advantage of traveling with me, not only to benefit from exploring with a local like me but also with someone who loves to discover and find new hidden gems. And of course, if you have any further questions, feel free to ask me in the Q&A section! ❤️ And before we confirm the trip, I will schedule a video call to ensure that we have the same understanding and expectations about the trip! 😊

Hey there fellow travelers! I'm Swiss, a 27-year-old adventurer from Krabi, Thailand. I have been working in Austria for the last 3 years in the beautiful Austrian mountains as a bartender, So I can definitely make you some good cocktails! 😂❤️😜 Now, I'm taking a holiday back in my homeland, and working on my new business projects. As a former host at Projects Abroad, connecting with people from around the world comes naturally to me. I'm friendly, approachable, and always up for a good time. I enjoy writing, reading, drinking a good cocktail by the beach 😂 So, Let's explore Lanta Island and beyond, laugh, and create lifelong memories together. Join me on this incredible journey!

We will stay in a beachfront/beach-accessible bungalows where everybody has their own private space and bathroom. And don’t worry, you will still experience comfortable, private atmosphere close to nature. The Beach nearby has some fantastic restaurants and several beach bars all within a few minutes walk. The roadside also has minimarts & pharmacy and clinic. It’s not necessary to use a car / scooter, as everything is within walking distance. However it is recommended to rent a vehicle for a couple of days to explore the island.
