Khao Lak

Located 83 kilometres north of Phuket International Airport, Khao Lak is set against the coastline of Phang Nga bay. This area, famous for its beautiful land and waters, is packed with national parks that provide guests not only scenic views but a range of different attractions to discover. Natural jungles meet dramatic hills divided by streams and waterfalls, and in Khao Sok and Phang Nga national parks, visitors can experience jungle trekking, white water rafting, jeep safaris, bamboo canoeing, and elephant trekking.

Pristine beaches line the bay, and beyond into the Andaman Sea is the stunning scenery of unique limestone rock formations and an amazing underwater world. The Similan Islands, consisting of nine small secluded islands, is one of the world’s top ten diving destinations. It is highly praised for its beautiful scenery, both onshore and underwater. Abundant, unspoiled coral gardens are inhabited by colourful coral reefs and marine life. The islands are attractive with white sandy beaches, dense vegetation and huge smooth boulders.
