Khao Lak

4
A tropical adventure in Khao Lak, a cluster of villages on the west coast of Thailand's main peninsula, ensures tourists have plenty of time for basking on beaches boasting a serene and secluded ambience. Small settlements preserve a rustic and rural way of life, while planning ordinances prohibit structures taller than the height of a coconut palm tree. Though popular, the area is not overcrowded, serving as a destination for those wishing to shun the throngs of neighboring regions. Tours of Khao Lak often include scuba and snorkeling excursions and ventures into the main urban areas, home to many family-friendly restaurants. Plan the details of your Khao Lak holiday and any onward adventuring with our easy-to-use Thailand vacation planner.

Where to stay in Khao Lak

Expect to find apartment and resort-style places to stay in Khao Lak. Beachside options charge relatively steep rates for views of Thailand's west coast and the sea, though you can also find less pricey self-service villas and apartment complexes in several areas along the shore. For budget hostels and hotels, look along Phetkasem Road, the main arterial road in Khao Lak.
