We are two families planning to travel to Thailand for the first time in July-Aug 2014. First we are going to Krabi for a wedding, but we are planning to take the last week around Phuket, since our flight home will be from Phuket airport.
We booket hotel in Khao Lak (Khao Lak Paradise Resort), but a friend of mine who had been in Thailand several times told me that Khao Lak will be too boring in the low season, and he recommended Kata Beach. Therefore I ask you experienced travellers - what to choose??
As mentioned we are two families, our children are very varied in age: 1,5, 9, 10, 12 og 15 years. Is Khao Lak Paradice resort a good choice - near the restaurants/city center? We are interested to live in walking distance to beach and restaurants And we are also not interested to be at the beach and hotel all the time - we are ready for excursions. Looking forward to hearing from you.
