Lanta Old Town, on Koh (island) Lanta, was home for about six years. When I first arrived to Old Town there were only two other foreigners living on this east side of what is generally a tourist island (on the west side). Soon the number grew to six, but remained that way for some years. Now, just like the rest of the island, which has seen consistent growth in development and tourism, Old Town too is changing rapidly. But it’s still a place that I call home to this day.
