Khao Lak

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.
On the 18th (Fri), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: relax and rejuvenate at some of the best spas and then enjoy the sand and surf at White Sand Beach.

Plan my Khao Lak trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Calgary, Canada to Khao Lak is an approximately 26-hour flight. The time zone difference when traveling from Calgary to Khao Lak is 14 hours. Prepare for warmer weather when traveling from Calgary in December: high temperatures in Khao Lak hover around 36°C and lows are around 26°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 19th (Sat) to allow enough time to drive to Rawai.
