Hello, end of December we will be in Thailand. We wanted to go on the Krabi side for 6 days. We would like to attend to Thai Cooking Workshops, to dive (we are divers) and to enjoy nature as much as possible...also street food (markets) as well and sea kayak (at best). What would be best: to stay around Krabi or go to Ko Lanta? The idea would be to spend the lesser time in commuting.

ps: next we would spend 3 days in Kao Sok. Sorry for my english.
Ko Lanta is definitely worth going to! When we were in Thailand, we wish we had more than 3 days to keep exploring. There is a great cave (Khao Mai Kaew Cave) in the middle of the island that was one of our favorite experiences, and many beautiful white beaches. It's only an hour and a half or so ferry ride from Krabi.
