Introducing Khao Lak
Khao Lak is famous for having the most peaceful beach destinations in Thailand. If you want to enjoy quiet walks by the sea and empty, unspoiled beaches, Khao Lak is the place to visit.
It is a one-hour drive from the north of Phuket Island and consists of a series of villages in the middle of Takua Pa District and Mueang District of the Phang Nga Province.
Khao Lak literally translates to Lak mountain, which is the name of the largest mountain in the center of the region. Three national parks surround this area, which makes it no wonder that it is best explored by biking around!
