Change things up with these side-trips from Mai Khao: Pa Khlok (Anda Adventure - Day Tours & Ao Po Pier) and Wat Sri Sunthon (in Si Sunthon). There's much more to do: take a tour by water with Phuket Tours Transfers, see the world from above with Skydance Helicoptor Tours, get engrossed in the history at Thalang National Museum, and stop by James Bespoke Suit.
