Khao Lak

Khao Lak is the perfect destination for visitors looking to enjoy a relaxing holiday on Thailand’s stunning beaches away from the hustle and bustle of the country’s busier resorts.  Whilst the destination has a more relaxed pace of life compared to the high-octane energy of nearby Phuket, Khao Lak still possesses all the essential amenities of a beach resort, with a wide variety of activities and retail opportunities. With gorgeous powdery sands and inviting turquoise waters set against a backdrop of lush greenery. Located on the northern Andaman coast, Khao Lak also provides an ideal base for excursions to Khao Lak, Lam Ru and Khao Sok National Parks and the stunning Similan and Surin Islands.
