Hubby & I want to spend 4 nights in Khao Lak in June. I am so torn between Nang Thong Beach or Bang Niang Beach. As it is low season we understand it will be quite & beach swimming is unlikely but we do want some restaurants & bars etc to wander to for lunch & dinner.
Age: 46 & 50, budget around $80AUS per/night, pool required if sea to rough, view is a bonus, nice grounds, clean rooms, breaky included.
Nang Thong has a number of beachfront hotels & bars close by & walking distance to the main street of town where I believe more establishments stay open through the low season.
Bang Niang has some beautiful hotels but not as much is open in low season & a ride is needed at night time to get in & out of town.
Any thoughts, experiences or opinions are welcome.
