Apsara Beachfront Resort and Villa


My boyfriend and I are staying at The Apsara Beachfront Resort and Villa in March this year and wanted to know if there are any easy ways to get around and into town without hiring a car? As I have read it is in quite a remote area.

Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated :)

Other than hiring a scooter (UK driving licence for a motor bike required to drive legally and recommended an International Driving Permit as well plus your own insurance) or a car there is a hotel shuttle or taxis into the main townships of Bang Niang and Bang La On. There are a few local resuarants on the beach and the road nearby.

Hi Rachel...We stayed at Apsara last September and as I recall,we were going to town via shuttle which costs 100b/person...However because there were 4 of us,it was actually cheaper via the resort taxi at 300b for the 4 of us...

I'm unsure about return trip via taxi/shuttle as we rented 2 motor scooters to scoot all around Khao Lak....Note:3 of us are licenced to ride motorcycles.

Ask if you can prearrange for taxi pickup at a designated pickup point and time at which you wished to be picked up....Of course,this locks you into a time frame restricting freedom of movement....Have fun...!!
