Best location to stay for nightlife?

Hi there

I'm going to Ko Lanta with some friends on as part of a backpacking trip in the Krabi area in late November. Is the main area for backpackers to stay near the port where boats come from phiphi/ ao nang? I know it's a quieter island but is there still some nightlife?

Thankyou!

Long beach is the best area for some night life, Ozone bar and The tree house have regular party nights, Gypsy bar also has regular live music.

Saladan is the main 'port' area but Long Beach is close enough and much nicer place to stay with better beach (I think).

The further down the island you head, the quieter it gets, which is what attracts many people to Ko Lanta

Ok long beach sounds good, do we have to pre book accomodation? or will there be available things in late november? I prefer just showing up at the port and bargaining there.

Thanks all!

It’s no longer the cheapest option in Thailand to wait till you arrive, that day is long gone.You’ll get a much more competitive price by comparing all the usual online sites and booking in advance,Agoda, booking.com,travel republic, alpharooms and ebookers are all very reliable, and some will give you the option of booking now and pay on arrival.

Yes..you may be a bit out of touch.

November is high season. The best spots book out months before.

Parts of Thailand are flooded with tourists nowadays...
