distance in khao lak

I am planning to visit khao lak in mid July with my boyfriend. On looking at accommodation I'm wondering if the hotels are close to the town? I don't want to be confined to a resort and want to go to restaurants and bars outside the hotel. Any suggestions in accommodation or are the hotels based close enough to walk to the town? Thanks in advance

Khao Lak comprises 9 different beaches and beach areas spread over 25km of coastline. The two main townships where you will find most restaurants, bars and shops within easy walking distance of resorts are Bang La On and 1 minutes up the highway Bang La On. I suggest you use Booking.com which has most of the accommodation in Khao Lak for your dates to find accommodation within your budget then come back for information on any you fancy.

Thanks so much for that. If it's only a minute or so that's grand. I was just worried I'd be in the middle of nowhere. You've been very helpful

I think Arandora meant to say the two main townships...Bang La On and Bang Niang. The knowledgeable one must have been up late ;)
