There’s something about water that’s recharging for the soul.
Even more so when it’s the bright, crystal clear waters of the Andaman Sea.
In this funny time between the hot/high and the wet/low season, the island was quiet but, though cloudy at times, still put its best foot forward when the sun shone sparkling on the aquamarine water. There wasn’t much I wanted to do but just soak it up.
Breathe in the clean air.
Notice the little things.
Eat some good food (which proved a little difficult to find…)
And just see what happened.
With little expectations, I was pleasantly surprised by Lanta and wish my time there had lasted a bit longer…

Hey! I'm Alana and I've spent nearly the past decade living in Chiang Mai, Thailand, working as a writer and photographer. I started Paper Planes as a place to share local insight, special places, and how to travel well through a range of experiences — from hostels to high-end hotels, street meat to multi-course meals.
New places are always calling my name...
