Having toured around most of Thailand, i'm keen to get off the busy tourist route hence my decision to take the family to Khao Lak for 17 nights. We'll be staying at the JW Marriott and as a family we're happiest playing in the sea/pool or lazing around. Now i'd like to know is 17 nights too long?
Also are there plenty of restaurants to try (don't want to be confined to the hotel), are bicycles easy to hire? Is Khao Lak hilly or flat? Is it easy to arrange sea fishing? If we want to go to Phuket Splash Water Park what's the approximate driving time? And finally.......any lovely Thai cooking schools?
Apologies for the questions and thanking you in advance.
