Top attractions in Khao Lak
What people are saying about Khao Lak
The started off with a tour around a local market, viewing the stalls selling various exotic fruits, vegetables, herbs and spices. Then a short walk through the town to a local temple where our guide Nan explained about the various alters that we left offerings at. The second temple was a short drive out of town near to the coast. We then visited the turtle sanctuary and saw a number of rescued turtles being nurtured back to full heath. Lunch was at a local restaurant, and I must say it was probably the BEST Pad Thai that I have eaten. After lunch we were taken to a waterfall in the national park. Over all an informative, enjoyable day was had by all. Nan the tour guide was very friendly and easy to chat to about all aspects of Thailand life. Would definitely recommend this trip.
Had the best time on this tour. No one else booked in that day so we had it all to ourselves and we were the first tour group to arrive at each location which was amazing and often a very rare experience. Our tour guide ‘Run’ was super helpful and provided a lot of insights for everywhere we went. His energy and enthusiasm made the day what it was. Our only criticism was that the provided lunch at the restaurant- although there was lots to choose from it may have made us sick the next day. Apart from that I can highly recommend this tour to anyone in the Khao Lak area it is great value for money and a really wonderful day
Everything about this tour was sensational. The experience involved extra to what we thought and lunch was even included in the morning tour. The staff were very respectful and caring of the elephants and it is obvious they have a genuine love for the animals. One of the elephants was very playful in the water and splashing everyone. Suggest taking old clothes/swimmers as the water is quite muddy and you do get a little dirty but it is all part of the experience and worth it. We plan to do again when we return. Loved it!
Aey was a wonderful guide. On the way she told us a lot about Thailand and she kindly answered all questions. The top on this day was the elephant bathing. It was a pleasure to see how the animals are kept. No chains, no cages, they see elephants as their friends. We had a bath with 7 year old elephant "girl" DeeDee. It was such a pleasure to see her acting in the water and beeing happy :-)
Better than described and expected. Superb English speaking guide who also gave insights into Thai culture and life. Excellent organisation especially each party on tour having own elephant. Everything included - Eg rain ponchos, water - except insect repellant for rafting which was our oversight. Highly recommended.
