Khao Lak review
Khao Lak is one of Thailand’s most tranquil resort destinations, close to the Similan and Surin Islands. Three national parks are enclosed by the surrounding hills that sweep down to this fantastic stretch of coastline. With dense mangroves and rubber-tree plantations and beaches that go on for 20 kilometers, you will feel you have escaped it all.
Khao Lak is a perfect holiday location featuring an assortment of hotels, restaurants, and fun activities. Khao Lak checks all of those boxes, providing a serene spot to cut off by the sea and have an excellent time. It is not named Lak Mountain for no reason, Khao Lak features some amazing hiking locations to match. Combining that with the people and their fascinating daily bustle, markets, and labyrinths/ mazes and dinosaur attractions, Khao Lak becomes one of the most immersive holiday experiences.
The most prominent island near Khao Lak is undoubtedly Phuket. In most cases, you would even have to drive through Phuket to get to Khao Lak, so you can stop on the way to take in some of those fantastic locations too. Besides Phuket, Similan Islands and Surin Islands are also worth visiting from Khao Lak. Awash with glorious beaches, breathtaking nature, and terrific marine life – there are hips to expect when island hopping Khao Lak.
