Khao Lak is a stunning, peaceful holiday destination in Thailand that is a lot more laid-back than many of its Thai counterparts. It is characterised by white sandy beaches, rolling forested hills and a slow-pace to everyday life which is ideal if you are looking to visit somewhere across the other side of the world and hit the reset button.

If Khao Lak seems like a great destination to you, we highly recommend that you try and come here for the first week in March. This is when the annual turtle festival takes place at Thai Muang National Park Beach where baby turtles are released back into the sea. Volunteers are encouraged to join in and raise awareness. It is a truly unique and hugely fulfilling experience! One of the best ways to get around and see all that Khao Lak has to offer is by going on a biking tour. Take in the mountainous scenery and beautiful beach views as you learn more about the region. Finally, a visit to the International Tsunami Museum is recommended as you learn about some of the darkest moments of this resort’s history when it was devastated by the 2004 Boxing Day tsunami.
Khao Lak offers a wide variety of accommodation options to choose from to suit travellers of all tastes and budgets. However, the majority of choices here are geared towards the smaller and friendlier accommodation types. Khao Lak is also the ideal place to get accustomed to and try some delicious Thai cuisine. There are also cooking lesson opportunities in the resort from local experts which is an excellent way to spend half a day and to immerse yourself in the local culture.
