.... and grab yourself a Dry Season bargain!
Due to a combination of the world-wide recession and the after effects of the Bangkok Airport fiasco, visitor numbers in Khao Lak are down compared to the same period last year when places were full to bursting.
However, for those looking for a last minute get away there are great deals to be had, particularly with some low airfares available (check Gulf Air for instance).
For example, the excellent Amanusa Resort where we enjoy dining overlooking the ocean to a great and varied menu, the owner told us she is now offering all rooms, beach facing included, at 2000 baht per room per night including breakfast from now until 10th May when they plan to close for the Wet Season.

Similarly the lovely Cousin Resort where we sadly are abut to leave next week after staying here since January is offering 50% on its rates from 15th April. Website: http://www.cousinresort.com/ Email: CousinResort@hotmail.com
No doubt there are or will be other deals available.
A great chance to enjoy this wonderful destination.
