Hi folks, we arrived in Khao Lak yesterday and we're staying at the Sands. We booked half board (with 2 young girls we thought thus would be easier) but dinner tonight was a Pre set menu of 3 Thai options and 3 western. I'm really gutted to say that the food just wasn't up to the usual Thai standard that we're used too. My hubby and I are devastated as one of the main reasons we keep coming back to Thailand (usually Ko Samui) is the food. Can anyone recommend where we should eat which is close to the Sands? Also where should we head out to to see the best of Khao Lak? We ventured out of the hotel for a stroll (turned right) and I was a little underwhelmed :-( we usually stay on Bophut beach in Samui and we love the Fishermans Village for its gorgeous restaurants, shops, markets and at the moment I feel like maybe we should've stuck to what we know. I would love to fall in love with Khao Lak too.
