Khao Lak overview

Khao Lak Travel Guide
Located just a short distance from Phuket is the pretty village of Khao Lak, where top resorts dominate the back of the beach. The village is fairly quiet and free from large supermarket chains and shopping centres. In their place stand numerous stalls selling anything from sarongs through to hand-crafted teak elephants. The beach is pretty and rubbish-free and the water is blessed with the sound of silence; enjoyed by many as jet-skis and speedboats thankfully stay around the shores of its larger neighbour, Phuket. Snorkelling and relaxing on the beach are as strenuous as life gets here and there are many decent places to eat and drink found along the main beach road. Fresh seafood dishes are the main highlight for cuisine tasting visitors.
