About travel to Khao Lak

Khao Lak is a low key beach resort destination which is popular with families and older visitors. The distance from a major airport, the closest of which is Phuket Airport over 80 km south, has meant that this fantastic part of Thailand hasn’t become as developed as other holiday locations such as Phuket or Koh Samui. Khao Lak has a lot going for it, in particular the 20 km of beaches along its coastline, most of which has fine white sand and is safe for swimming. Khao Lak also has a small national park, Khao Lak-Lam Ru National Park, which is well worth visiting for a walk along well marked trails to waterfalls and viewpoints. In addition, from Khao Lak you can easily access the Similan Islands which have the best diving and snorkelling sites in Thailand.

Khao Lak is collective name for a stretch of small settlements running about 20 km along a major coastal road. There are three main towns, the largest of which is Bang La On. There is little in the way of public transport in Khao Lak, so you need to hire a vehicle, book a tour, or take a taxi to get around. The people who come to stay in Khao Lak tend not to be backpackers and whilst maybe doing a couple of outings during their stay most visitors to Khao Lak are content to relax on the beach near their resort and venture out to eat and drink near to where they are staying, which is what a lot of holiday makers want for 2 week break from their normal working life back in a big city. Khao Lak attracts a fairly steady stream of Thai tourists from Bangkok on long weekend breaks.
