We are a young couple in our mid 20s and going to Thailand for 16 days in Febuary.
We are thinking about staying in Khao Lak for a week, but I am not 100 % sure if it is what we are looking for after reading through the forums. It feels like Khao Lak does attract many honeymooners and a middle aged crowd.
I am looking for great beaches (with snorkelling), hidden bays only to be found after exploring the area by scooter and bars and restaurants in the evening with a predominantely young crowd - similar to Koh Phi Phi and Koh Phangan where we stayed before.
Do you think I will find all these things in Khao Lak?
