Ban Khao Lak Travel Guide: 89 reviews and 243 photos

Khao Lak is located about an hours drive north of Phuket airport.

When the tsunami of 2004 struck South Asia, Khao Lak was the hardest hit area in Thailand, with over 4000 fatalities. It has since made an impressive recovery, and is once again a popular tourist destination.

Khao Lak mainly caters to families and those looking for R&R. I noticed most of the tourists in the area were older German couples, with the odd younger family there with children.
If you want to party it up, Khao Lak will dissapoint you with it's lack of nightlife.

Tap La Mu pier is located nearby, and is the departure point of many Similan Island liveaboard vessels.
