We are just about to book our flights into Bangkok then go straight back to Samui (Bophut).
Reading through this forum it's sounds like Khao Lak isn't as built up as Samui yet.
Where on Khao Lak would be similar to Bophut ie quiet and variety of restaurants.
Not after a 5 star hotel a small hotel would be nice.
Also could we arrange for someone to drive us from Surat Thani to Khao Lak rather than flying as would see more of Thailand that way.
Any advice much appreciated
