Ban Sala Dan Pier is 5.1 km from the centre of Koh Lanta’s Long Beach (Haad Klong Dao) which is the most popular part of Koh Lanta with foreign visitors and has the highest concentration of bars, restaurants and resorts. If have not arranged a pick up at Ban Sala Pier with your resort then you have three local travel options:

  • Shared songthaew taxis
  • Motorbike taxis
  • Motorbike taxis with side car

Expect to pay around 150 THB for the journey from Ban Sala Dan Pier to Haad Klong Dao, more for destinations further away. You should also note that some of the roads on Koh Lanta Yai are unpaved, and the taxi driver may be unwilling or unable to take you all the way to your resort, in which you may need to walk a short distance from the main concrete road to your resort if that resort is located on an unpaved road.
