Koh Lani is an island paradise in the Gulf of Thailand. It’s a popular tour destination from Pattaya.
On Sunday the 100 tourists on this beautiful beach paradise were ordered to leave due to a COVID-19 case.

Koh Lan is a small161 sq mile island in the Gulf of Thailand. The island is a paradise and known for its beaches, set against a backdrop of wooded hills. In the north, Ta Waen Beach is dotted with restaurants and shops. A large, stingray-shaped building dominates Samae Beach’s north end. The beach is famed for its clear water and sunset views. Small monkeys inhabit the hills around coral-ringed Nual Beach, in the south.

Tourists love the island. All of this is ending as of today.

About 100 remaining tourists on the island paradise were told to leave Koh Lan in Bang Lamung district, as the island was placed under a local lockdown from today until Jan 20.

The lockdown, which was announced on Sunday evening by the island’s Covid-19 committee, came after a person was found to be infected at Bali Hai pier, from where ferry services that connect Pattaya and Koh Lan depart.

Chon Buri’s public health office has also asked those who traveled between Pattaya and Koh Lan through Bali Hai pier between Dec 18-31 to closely monitor their health.

The announcement required operators of lodges and resorts to clear out all tourists by yesterday and barred them from accepting new guests until the situation is resolved.
