Day trip to Khao Lak reccomendations

Hi all

I will be going to Khao Lak in December on a day trip, leaving from Nai Yang. Most likely i will catch a local taxi there and will need a taxi back. As i will only have a day to look around can anyone recommend which area to go to?

Mainly want to go to the beach have a nice lunch and look around for a possible places to stay in future if we like the area. Have been reading the faq's and as there seems allot of choice it has made it more confusing.

Hi Davnic

you might be better to get in touch with Boss Taxis, he is excellent and will structure a good sightseeing tour of Khao Lak and surrounds for you, with return transfers to your hotel, he is very good and informative on these tours, very reliable and professional service,

it would work out cheaper than seperate taxi's and having to get taxi's around the area from a to b

email Boss:


on the way through maybe:

Lampi waterfalls

Turtle conservation centre

Khao Lak viewpoint and town, check out Nang Thong Bay Resort there on the beach, some lovely beach bungalows there

Bang Niang beach area (good place to look around for hotels too)

Tsunami memorial and museum

Police boat

Fishing boats and harbour

Takua Pa town and markets

maybe Khao Lak markets if they are on the day you go

Chong Fah waterfalls

white sand beach (possibly for lunch) best beach in Khao Lak

just to name a few place you could go to, you may not fit it all in for a day trip but Boss will make a good tour of all the best parts, see you need to come and stay for a while its a great place, best place that we ever discovered.....true paradise

happy planning :-)

Thanks Mossy

Today i was thinking of a hire car or bike but a tour guide as you suggest would be the best option. I will email Boss and mention your suggestions and see what he can come up with as we would like to see as much as possible and then work out a plan to spend a week or 2 next year.

Thanks again,
