If you hop on a traditional Hua Tone boat – just like the local Le people do to travel across the water just south of Phuket – it won’t be long before you encounter Koh Lone, better known as ‘Lone Island’. On the tranquil Lone Island, you’ll soon get a sense that the atmosphere and lifestyle here are distinctly different from that of Phuket’s main island or, for that matter, most other places in the world. The inhabitants of Koh Lone have worked hard to preserve the beauty and exquisiteness of their home and their determination is clearly evident to see in the island’s bountiful nature and unspoiled lifestyle. Best of all, they are ready and happy to share all this with you.
Just how many times in your life will you get the chance to take a boat trip with the Le people as they cast their nets to catch fish, which by the way, makes for some of the best seafood you’ve had in your life? And after a full day of cultural activities with the locals, there’s the chance to take a well-earned rest – with a traditional foot massage for good measure.
This is just a small taster of all the memorable experiences that await on your next visit to Phuket’s beautiful Koh Lone.
