In the southern areas of Thailand near the Andaman Sea, you
will find one of the most picturesque beaches, Khao Lak.
Perfect for nature lovers and those who love peace and
relaxation, Khao Lak provides the environment fit for a
getaway.

Khao Lak resorts are reasonably priced and much less
expensive compared to other resorts. You will find a wide range
of hotels in the vicinity that can suit your needs. The typical rate
of accommodation is around 3 to 4 star, particularly in the Baan
Khao Lak on the Nang Thong Beach and The Paradise located
on Sunset Beach. For the best that money can get you there,
you can visit the resorts on Khao Lak Beach, but for
adventurers, you can try the beaches beyond that, such as the
Bang Sak and Pakweeb beaches.

The Khao Lak centre called the Bang La On, is less than a
quarter of an hour away from the resorts via taxi or shuttle.
There are bars, shops, banks including ATMs, and other
facilities in the centre for your needs.

Take a plane ride from Phuket or Krabi to get to Khao Lak. You
can take a taxi from the Phuket airport which would cost you at
most 1,600 baht. However, a cheaper option would be by bus
for 100 baht, and one that’s going to Ranong, Surat Thani, or
Takua Pa can drop you off at Khao Lak.

Besides the resorts, there are plenty of tourist attractions which
you can also visit. For instance, you can visit the Chong Fah
waterfall east of Bang Niang. You can also try the Lampi
Waterfall with its picturesque sunrise view.

Another must visit is the Takuapa Old Town which is less than
an hour’s ride from Khao Lak. Be captivated by the Sino-
Portuguese architecture and enjoy visiting the local shops and
restaurants, particularly at dawn.

Naturally, you would have to visit the Khao Lak Lam Ru
National Park. For jungle trekking or elephant riding, you can
check out the Khao Sok National Park.
