First timer to Khao Lak

I have just booked a pool access room at The Sands for 8 nights next April.

We have been to Phuket 8 times and felt it was time to try a new area, even though we absolutely love Phuket.

Just starting to read the KL forum and don't think we will be disappointed.

Any must dos from regular KL travellers?

Hello and welcome to the KL forum. We too love Phuket and still go every year, but we discovered KL 3 years ago, so now we also visit every trip as well. We find the beaches beautiful, the people lovely and the accommodation awesome.

To be honest we really just go to relax, so we haven't explored that much. Have done the waterfall, tsunami museum and police boat, but that's about it.

Today we are in ko tao( off samui) 2 weeks into our 1 month away, tomorrow we leave for 7 days in Samui then we are off to KL for our last week of r&r.... We too are staying at the sands.

KL is such a relaxed, beautiful place and I'm sure your first visit will not be your last!!!

Enjoy yourselves and safe an happy travels.

Hi , if you feel a little adventurous have a bamboo raft ride on the river but be warned you will get a wet bum , good fun though .
