  • Sarasin Bridge passes over the Strait between the Andaman Sea and the Bay of Phang-Nga. In 1967 year bridge replaced the ferries, which were the only transport to get to Phuket to the Mainland. at the narrowest point of the Strait distance seems to be quite small, but the move by swimming dangerous-here is a very strong currents!

  • A charming bridge. Colorful lamps and walkways. Sadly not enough cover from the sun.
  • Arrays of salted fish, anchovies for your picking. And a must-try steam crab. So fresh and juicy.
  • We usually went there to watch the sunset because we enjoy the view. It's very refreshing and relaxing to stay. There are even lots of cheap foods you can buy on the street. And my friends also love fishing there.
  • Street vendors have interesting food to offer !
  • Nice place to see sunset. Food generally okay.

Where to stay in Mai Khao

While there are plenty of accommodation options in Mai Khao, be sure to book well in advance if you're traveling here in high season: January is the most popular month. Look for guesthouses and hotels in the northern part of the region if you enjoy sightseeing, long walks, and relaxing in pristine nature. Be sure to conduct a lot of research before you set off or book anything, as a lot of websites can contain false or misleading imagery. Budget-friendly options in Mai Khao include camping--camping areas are abundant here--as well as bungalows. However, those who want to splurge on their beach retreat will find opportunities to do so in Mai Khao's holiday resorts and hotels.
