Khao Lak

Nestled between the gentle Andaman Sea and tropical National Parks, lies the tranquil town of Khao Lak, a traditional and charming place offering peace and serenity to all travellers.

If you love the outdoors, Khao Lak is the perfect gateway to both tropical jungles and stunning underwater worlds. Just a one-hour transfer away from Phuket airport it’s a great place to experience Thailand’s untouched charm and laid-back spirit. With a picture postcard landscape of enchanting waterfalls and mysterious temple caves combined with shimmering shores and natural wildlife, it is an idyllic hideaway where you can unwind in pristine surroundings.

Khao Lak is also a gateway to some of the top dive areas in southern Thailand with visitors drawn by the enchanting Similan and Surin Islands. With colourful coral gardens and an underwater world teeming with anemones in a kaleidoscope of reds, yellows and blues, you are also likely to encounter white tip sharks, rays, snappers, barracudas and turtles in the shimmering water that lap the glittering shores.
