To stay in Khao Lak or divide time with Krabi?

Hello

We plan to arrive to Khao Lak after visiting Bangkok and surrounding for 4 days and Khao Sok for 3 days.

We are not sure if to stay 3 nights in Khao Lak and 2 nights in Krabi or to stay the whole 5 nights in Khao Lak.

We are with 4 kids (20,18,12,6) and we mostly like nature and action and a certain time of relaxing.

We plan at least to do 1 snorkeling day in Surin and a boat trip to Pang ngh

Your advises will be appreciated

Thanks

Hi

with only short time I would stay put in khao lak. It is doable but you will lose your precious time at least few hours for travel between these two places.

With only five days I wouldn't split it either. While the actual travel time may be only 2.5-3 hrs., by the time you pack, check-out, travel. check-in and unpack, it will have taken the the better part of a whole day.

I agree it is not worth going to Krabi for such a short time :)

I would spend time in just one location as if you split your time you need to factor in travel time. Khao lak is my choice
