First of all, thanks to the people who have provided, and provide today valuable information on this forum about Khao Lak : it really helps - first, to chose to visit Khao Lak and its area, and second, to plan one's trip accordingly :)
So we will be heading to Khao Lak in March.
I am considering staying at the Nang Thong Bay resort, given the good reviews it has on TA. But the feedback there is "quite old" . has anybody stayed there recently ? Would you advise the resort I or resort II - specially for cleanliness of rooms?
I am also a bit concerned by the odd smell coming from the river that people reported about...
Also, I wondered if the restaurants in La On and Bang Niang villages open early in the morning to serve local breakfasts for instance (like in Vietnam , or in Singapore) ? Or do Thai people eat breakfast at home in these areas ?
Do the two villages offer the same level of services/shops ? (travel agencies to book a snorkelling daytrip , nice massage shops, good restaurants, etc.. )
It seems Bang Niang has gotten bigger than Nang Thong , and may offer more...
Thanks very much !
