Khao Lak is the perfect holiday destination for couples looking for a peaceful seaside spot on Thailand's Andaman Coast. It does not cater so much to budget travellers and has much less in the way of nightlife than many other beach resorts in Thailand. It is also a great destination for family holidays and offers an excellent variety of activities for children and parents to enjoy together. Khao Lak boasts numerous beautiful golden sand beaches, acres and acres of dense jungle and some of the best scuba diving sites anywhere in Asia - the sites around the Similan Islands are especially highly regarded.
Visitors to Khao Lak should be sure to include the Khao Lak Lam Ru National Park in their plans. A vast expanse of mangrove forests, water falls and jungle, its varied ecosystem includes flying lemurs, lizards and porcupines. Khao Sok National Park is also well worth seeing and offers the opportunity of river rafting and elephant treks. Other natural attractions in the region include the placid waters of Cheow Lan Lake, the numerous hot springs in the area and Lampi Waterfall. There are also a number of eighteen hole golf courses in the region - including the Jack Nicklaus-designed Mission Hills Golf Resort. Khao Lak is an hour's drive from Phuket International Airport and boasts a tropical monsoon climate, with the peak tourism months falling between January and March - when the likelihood of rain is at its lowest.
Khao Lak offers an excellent range of beach hotels and resorts to choose from - most offer spa facilities and gourmet dining and many have tropical gardens and stunning beach-front settings.
