Is late June a good time to go to Khao Lak

We are booked in to go from Phuket to Bangkok on the 4th July.

We are now thinking of changing our plans due to the unrest in Bangkok. Is Khao Lak okay at this time. Or would it be better to go to Krabi?

Hi Pam,

Based on low season last year (August) you will find Khao lak good. Khao lak was very quiet tourist wise in August, however the weather was great. Enough resorts, shops and restaurants were open to give a good selection. If you enjoy a peaceful relaxing holiday, Khao lak is great for this.

Cannot comment on Krabi at the same time of year.

Regards, tanmar

Krabi will be much more commercialised than Khao Lak which is more laid back. Have a look at this site which is for Khao Lak in the green season.

Hi Tanmar...Miss talking to you guys...!!...

Anny and I was in Khao Lak last July/August,same time as Tanmar....

I met and spoke to Matt,who owned Pakarang surf shop in Bang La On....

He told me last June 2009 was the worst month...Constant rain and high winds most of the month does not maketh for nice holidays....

However,just because last June was bad,does'nt mean this June will also be bad.....No one can predict a whole month load of weather....!!??...One can only go on past weather patterns.....Anyway,Matt told me to come before or after June....!!...Late June should be ok...!!

Sorry....Have'nt been to Krabi...??...
