I'd posted the below in the Thailand forum as part of a bigger itinerary question, and someone recommended posting here instead.
I just have some questions on Khao Lak....
We plan to stay in Bang La On area, and chose this area as we've gathered from reviews on here that it has a good atmosphere, but not as full on as Phuket. We want to have a good choice of restaurants and bars. Not bothered about night clubs, but would be good if bars were open til 2am-ish? Nice beaches. Shopping options would be nice (but we'll probably have shopped a lot in Bangkok!)
- Can someone tell me.. If Phuket nightlife was rated 10/10, where would the nightlife around Bang La On fit?
- Another concern I have is tidal levels. I've read that at certain times there is hardly any beach. How often is this likely to happen in November?
- We really fancy doing a day trip to the Similan Islands for snorkelling... Is this easy enough to book whilst we're there?
- Where is the Tsunami museum in relation to this resort?
