What's new for Koh Larn

A Big Buddha on the hill over looking Tawaen Beach. There are motorbike trails that lead to this attraction. This is also on the way to the temple on top of the mountain there is a long set of stairs that lead up to that temple.

The main village that faces Pattaya is called Naban. Naban is where most of the resturants resorts and homes of the people that live on Koh Larn are located. Naban really has a charm of it's own. While I couldn't catalog all the features of Naban I will try to give you an idea of what it is like. This like the website will be ongoing. Thank you. While Naban is not new for Koh Larn the page for Naban is new on this website, so I have put it here on the new for Koh Larn web page temporarily.

Aside from visiting Koh Larn often I also scan the Internet for new ideas for this website. I check many media types and I check many times each day. You Tube is a great resource but it is hit and miss. When I find a great video to share I share it here. This drone footage is by far the best aerial footage I have seen of Koh Larn to date. The footage is smooth and easy to watch, and it is in 4K.

Glass bottom kayaks are a new item on the beaches of Koh Larn these days. As you would imagine these are great for seeing the ocean floor but also you can explore a little of the shoreline too. I don't have a rental rate yet but when I find out I will post it here but I am sure it is very reasonable, so go have some fun.

The new floating pier on Samae Beach

There is this new floating pier (pictured above) at the south end of Samae Beach, and another one located next to the main pier in Naban. The one pictured here is on Samae Beach. I am sure these will be located at most of the beaches very soon.

In the past getting on and off the speed boats at the older type floating piers was a real balancing act. I am sure many people have lost their balance because of the movement of the speed boat and the old style wobbly floating pier. I for one welcome this new improvement, when I walked on this new pier in the picture above it was almost like being on a stationary pier. Another advantage would also be with rolling your luggage along the pier, as you can see there are no sections to catch your wheels. Now if they could only stop the speed boats from bobbing up and down it would be perfect, but I will settle for this big improvement.
