Located an hour’s drive north of Phuket in mainland Phang Nga province, Khao Lak has long, long expanses of sandy beach bordered by the mountains of the surrounding national parks. It’s not difficult to understand Khao Lak’s appeal when you are greeted by unspoilt landscape of beaches, jungle-clad mountains, forested valleys, mangroves and estuaries. It’s a place to take it easy, read a book and get back to nature, albeit with a few comforts!
