Travel from Koh Lanta to Hat Yai

The easiest way to travel from Koh Lanta to Hat Yai is to take the car ferry from Koh Lanta to Hua Hin Pier on the mainland, and from there to take a bus or minivan to Hat Yai. An alternative is to travel by speedboat from Saladan Pier in Koh Lanta to Koh Muk, from there take a ferry and minivan to Trang, where you can board a bus to Hat Yai. In theory this route from Koh Lanta to Hat Yai is nearly as quick (although twice as expensive), however, it would be difficult to avoid long waits between the various speedboat, ferry, minivan and bus services you need to take which will massively increase the overall journey time from Koh Lanta to Hat Yai. Travel via Koh Muk would be a fun option for someone who had the time to stay overnight on route.
