For many vacationers in Thailand, the island of Phuket, with its massive resort towns, is a bit too overcrowded and busy. As a result, neighbouring Khao Lak, with its long stretches of
white sand backed by forested hills, is a welcome alternative. Here the warm waves make for a great day at the beach, and speedboat trips to the Similan and Surin Islands, as well as
Khao Sok and Khao Lak/Lam Ru National Parks, are easily undertaken. In addition, five star accommodations are available all along these stunning beachfronts.
