We are a 30-year old Finnish couple and we are staying at Merlin for two weeks starting in May 27. Our priority for our holiday is relaxation. However we would like to know how many restautants, bars, souvenir shops etc. stay open in off season near Merlin and also in Khao Lak Centre?
What about the excursions? Are there local travel acencies near Merlin? I have heard that there must be a minimum amount of participants (usually 4 person) or you have to pay extra. Is that true?
I have a question also concerning the elephant safaris. Are there two elephant safaris (Asia Safari and Khao Lak Eco Elephant Safari) also in off season near by Merlin?
What about the beach? Will there probably be a red flag most of the time or not?
Thank you in advance for all your answers!
