    If there is, go! It is a terrible testimony of one terrible day. Incredibly, what happened at that time. It's sad, pensive but also thankful that it was not concerned. With a few baht, you can buy something to help the victims of the tsunamis.

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.
