From Khao Lak Orchid to JW Marriott

Looking at my trusty fold up Khao Lak map i see that just over half way going from the orchid to the main road, there is a road that connects to the road that leads to the marriott, more importantly to all the beach restaurants that are reviewing so well

does this linking road exist, and is it the quickest way { by car } from one to the other...

Yes. You just follow the road from the Orchid then take a sharp left turn in the centre of Khuk Khak Village then the left turn to the JWM is about 5 minutes. From Orchid to main entrance to JWM is about 10 minutes.

god i wish it would rain here

800 mm in parts of queensland in the past 3 days

0.4 mm here since jan 1

thanks Alan, hoped that would be the case

how long 'walking time wise ' from the orchid to the marriott,

if the tide is out and i can cross the estuary between the orchid and andamaina, or is not crossable at all....

From Orchid to JWM about 20 minutes with a wade across the creek to the Andamania or get Lek from Lek's Bar on Orchid side of creek to ferry you across.

a good 20 minute walk sounds like the ticket after an extended lunch or dinner....
