Khao Lak is becoming increasingly popular with overseas visitors who accepted that Khao Lak actually became the haven for relaxation. The combination of
long stretches of unspoiled beach
, crystal clear blue sea and virgin mountain wilderness make this area particularly attractive to tourists looking for a peaceful vacation in the Land of Smiles.
Apart from pure beaches and sea, Khao Lak is located closely to Thap Lamu Port (open from November to April) where divers and excursion boats depart for Similan Islands; one of 10 most beautiful diving site in the world
. It is the nearest land point to the small archipelago, counted among the 10 most interesting dive sites in the world, well known for the world class reefs and crystal clear waters surrounding the islands.
Khao Lak has been known as a very close to nature vacation refuge for some time. The calm and natural atmosphere makes a pleasing contrast to many other travel destinations
in Thailand, such as Phuket, or Koh Samui.
