Is Khao Lak for me????


I am keen to travel to Khao Lak at Xmas but wanted to make sure it will be right for me and my wife. I love Thailand and have visited many of the islands and resorts. I particularly like Koh lipe and Koh Tao and enjoy chilling out watching the sunset with a nice cold beer and eating on one of the many beach restaurants. Can anyone advise if Khao Lak has plenty of beach restaurants and bars...I am not looking for a party resort but somewhere I can go and chill out with my wife and have some nice food in the evenings?

Yes, I think Kao Lak would suit you, it's a pretty relaxing place with a good choice of restaurants.

Khao Lak has over 25km of wonderful beaches and a very friendly and relaxing vibe.

This Traveler Article will give you background on the popular areas tripadvisor.co.uk/Travel-g297914-c120551/Kha…

... this will give you a link to pics of all of the beaches from November 2012 to date tripadvisor.co.uk/…47554643

... this will give you a link to a comprehensive list of accommodation throughout Khao Lak www.seadragondivecenter.com/accommodation.htm

... and this to a general map of Khao Lak khaolakyellowpages.com/wordpress/…

If you give an idea of your budget for accommodation, whether you want to be near to the main areas with restaurants, bars and shops nearby or are prepared to be in a more secluded location with a few beach restaurants nearby and shuttle/taxi needed to get to town it will help with some recommendations.

Plenty of other information in the FAQs on the right.

hi , i think this is the place for you endorsing everything mentioned above and just to add that even in the peak season it is not unduly busy and keeps that chilled laid back vibe you are after.

do bear in mind as arandora has pointed out it has a large array of different types of accomodation and different areas to suit just about everybody apart from those requiring the party scene or jet ski type activities.
