Car+Driver BKK to Khao Lak ??

We are going to Khao Lak in April, would it be crazy to get a car and driver and go by road rather than fly ?? We have been to Khao Lak and Phuket before and thought maybe going by road would be a scenic change ! I know it is approx 650 km from Bangkok.

A couple of questions - how long would it take and any ideas on a cost ??

Has anyone done this trip ??

I have driven quite a few of the roads in southern Thailand and whilst there are some interesting towns and sights I doubt that you will see and appreciate much unless you allow at least 3 days for the trip.

Personally, I would fly to Phuket or Krabi and drive from there.

We have pics and stories of our trips here... www.bobandjanette.com which may prove useful.

Happy & safe travels
