Best places to stay in Khao Lak?

I am thinking of visiting Khao Lak while I am backpacking around Thailand for 2 and a half months from December and was hoping I could get some recommendations on which area would be best to stay for backpackers on a budget but looking to be near a nice beach and bars etc.

Hi Darryl,

The two most popular and largest townships are Bang La On and Bang Niang, both of which are suitable for backpackers and offer a good selection of reasonable accommodation at reasonable prices.

Have a look at this comprehensive list here:


which will give you a good idea of what's available, where and at what price.

The Khao Lak Youth Club (not really a Youth Club, just a name) has a good reputation and appeal for young people, including backpackers.

See http://www.khaolakyouthclub.com/stay.html

Any more info after you've looked at these, just ask away.

BTW hope you've got your visa sorted. If not see thaiconsul-uk.com/downloads-and-visas.aspx
