  1. Hello, my Name is Nora und I´m from germany. I want to travel to thailand from Juli until September. I want to travel as sustainable as possible and so I found your blog. Thank you for the great work you are doing! I´m very exited about it.

    I want to ask you if you know a hostel/hotel/bungalow… place to stay in Koh Lanta which is eco friendly and supports local communities.

    Best wishes,
    Nora

  2. Sorry for my last mail. I missed that you already listed some nice sustainable places to stay on koh lanta.

    Best wishes,
    Nora

    1. Hi Nora, we love that you’re looking into how you can travel sustainably in Thailand. This is awesome and we wish more people were like you! Glad you found some suggestions of eco-friendly places to stay. We need to do a post listing places all together – at the moment, our suggestions are spread out in lots of different posts! While there isn’t one place on Koh Lanta that is 100% sustainable (if that’s even possible), there are lots of places doing some great eco-friendly things. Many places try to reduce the amount of single-use plastic they provide guests with – using Trash Hero refillable water bottles instead of plastic bottles, not providing single-use toiletries, not using plastic straws etc. Cozy Guesthouse, Mook Lanta, Oasis Yoga Bungalows and Lazy Days Bungalows are great at this. It’s hard for us to know about all the places on Koh Lanta, so there are probably other places we could add. A good place to check would be the Trash Hero water bottle map – the resorts on that map are hopefully quite eco-friendly. July-September is the low season, so not everywhere will be open then, but we hope you find somewhere great to stay and have a fantastic time on Koh Lanta. Let us know if you have any more questions and we’ll try to help.
