Khao Lak en route from Krabi to Phuket airport

Is Khao Lak a good place to drop off and stay a few days while coming from Krabi and ending up at Phuket airport? If we did this I assume we would travel from Krabi to Khao Lak via minibus.

If Kaho Lak is more or less on the route to the airport for us, could you suggest a hotel that is up a hill - have this thing about sleeping and not worrying about tsunamis!

Many thanks

Khao Lak is not en route to Phuket Airport from Krabi. To the Airport is just over 2 hours west. To Khao Lak is about the same time north west and then just over an hour south to Phuket if you stay over, which I think is well worth it. If you could say when you are visiting and your budget for accommodation some suitable options can be suggested. There is a full and tested Tsunami Warning system in place in Khao Lak, just as there is in Krabi, with the majority of visitors staying on or near one of the beaches. The Evacuation route is clearly signposted and there is only limited accommodation on the mountainside of the highway beyond the point which the 2004 Tsunami reached. God Forbid there is another Tsunami whether it is of the same magnitude or reaches the same point is in the hands of a Higher Authority than you or me. :-)
