What to see in Khao Lak

In Khao Lak city, places to visit are mainly memorials to the victims of 2004 tsunami. But here you also are not far from the Phang Nga Bay which offers one of the most beautiful seascapes in Thailand. It includes among others the famous James Bond Island, appeared in "The Man with the Golden Gun". All Khao Lak travel agencies offer a day trip to explore this beautiful bay. But make them compete because if the program is everywhere the same, the price can be very different.

Must-visits in Khao Lak

Phang Nga Bay Khao Lak

Phang Nga Bay

อ่าวพังงา
My opinion :
One of the most beautiful natural scenery in Thailand with its limestone cliffs and mountains in a turquoise sea. The main attractions in the bay are the famous James Bond Island and Koh Panyee with its floating village.
James Bond Island Khao Lak

James Bond Island

เขาตะปู
My opinion :
The island shaped like a nail in the sea is called James Bond Island since its appearance in The Man with the Golden Gun.
Similan Isands Khao Lak

Similan Isands

เกาะสิมิลัน
My opinion :
Comprising 11 islands, the Mu Ko Similan National Park offers seascapes and beaches as well as some of the most beautiful snorkeling and diving spots in Thailand. This exceptional environment is threatened by tourism, but measures have been taken to try to preserve it such as the closure to visitors during the low season and more recently the introduction of daily quotas of tourists.
Koh Surin islands Khao Lak

Koh Surin islands

เกาะสุรินทร์
My opinion :
With their beautiful white sand beaches with turquoise water and snorkeling or diving spots among the most beautiful in Thailand, the Surin Islands are clearly a must go place during your stay in the area. But be aware that they are only open to the public 6 months per year.
Samet Nangshe Viewpoint Khao Lak

Samet Nangshe Viewpoint

จุดชมวิวเสม็ดนางชี
My opinion :
Discovered by a photographer who was looking for a dominant viewpoint to photograph Phang Nga Bay, the Samet Nangshe Viewpoint has become in just a few years one of the most popular attractions in the region. For a unique reason: the panorama is just amazing ! You can sleep in a tent, a basic bungalow or a comfortable room there too.
