What to do and see in Khao Lak
Relax on one of several gorgeous beaches, go diving and snorkelling in the offshore Similan Islands and Koh Surin or explore by foot or elephant the lush natural jungle of Khao Lak Lam Ru National Marine Park (photo).
The Park is bisected by streams and sparkling waterfalls such as Lam Phi Falls and Chong Fah Falls, where you can cool off with a swim in the nature-sculpted rock pools beneath the cascades.
Surrounded by rice fields and plantations of rubber, palm and coconut, Khao Lak offers a choice of beachside resorts to suit all budgets, including two of Khao Lak’s most luxurious 5-star resorts: Le Meridien Khao Lak Resort (photo) and The Sarojin, which are ideal for honeymoon couples.
