Hiring a driver for the day?

Hi

Am currently at fx fanari bang Niang an was thinking of hiring a driver for the day to go round waterfalls and any other places of interest. Would b grateful if anyone could recommend an itinerary for the day, advise how much a driver would cost and, if possible, recommend a driver?

Thanks for your help in advance

Contact Boss of Cheaper than Hotel Taxis on cheaper_khaolak@ymail.com

He does an "Around Khao Lak" trip. He will be back very quickly with a quote which I am sure will be as reasonable as all his other prices.

I would suggest go north to the Sairung Waterfall, then continue north to the Tsunami Memorial at Ban Nam Khem (overlooking Koh Kho Khao (Kho Khao Island or just KKK) then on to Takua Pa, the district town, very Thai, very local, which is about 25km from Bang Niang to visit the daily market at the New Town and then to the historic Old Town. If you go on a Sunday the main street in the Old Town is closed for the local market.

... or if you are in Bang La On go and see Boss in his "office" on the highway going down from the Nang Thong Supermarket just past the Fizz Bistro.
