Share Article

Two Day Media Tour (Feb 11-13)of Ko Lanta, Thailand to dispel inaccurate media accounts of the effect the tsunami had on the island. Return transportation from Phuket or Bangkok will be provided as well as meals and accommodation on the island for two nights.

Inaccurate international media reports and foreign travel advisories, in the aftermath of the December 26th Tsunami, have cast a gloomy economic shadow over the entire Krabi Province region including tourist-dependant Ko Lanta.

Unfortunately, until corrected, the misinformation will continue to punish an island that, for the most part, was unaffected by the natural disaster. Meanwhile hotel and small businesses are open but sit empty while their debts continue to mount and tourist flock to near-by islands in the Gulf of Thailand.

A group of Ko Lanta’s quality hotels are inviting international media to tour the island on February 11-13, 2005 to see the real effect the tsunami had on the island. Transportation from Phuket or Bangkok will be provided as well as meals and accommodation on the island for two nights.

Supported by Andaman Lanta Resort, Lanta Casuarina Resort, Lanta Sand Resort & Spa, Layana Resort & Spa, Moonlight Bay Resort, Pimalai Resort & Spa, Royal Lanta Resort & Spa, Sri Lanta Resort & Spa, Twin Lotus Resort & Spa.
