In the last couple of years my wife and children have searched high and low for the perfect holiday destination, which has something for the whole family to keep everyone fully entertained, while offering peace, tranquility and the right environment to be able to immerse yourself, totally relax and go off the treadmill to say. We have been to some very good places during our search, but in all the experiences we have had, each one or more of the most important ingredients we all agreed to be absolutely necessary for us to be completely satisfied and content. But we have just returned from our recent family vacation and finally we are happy to report that we have found the perfect family holiday (if your family is enjoying a beach holiday) and we wanted to share our meeting with all of you who take the time to read this post.
The place we found there has something to keep us all entertained and happy was a reliable unspoilt 20km stretch of sandy beaches on the Andaman coast with a tropical jungle background. The region is called Khao Lak, and it is about an hour's drive from Phuket International Airport, and within Khao Lak there are 3 main tourist spots. Bang La On, Khuk Khak & Bang Niang. Khao Lak literally means Lak Mountain, and there is a nature reserve on the mountain that makes for one of the local attractions that we thoroughly enjoyed during our nature walks and guided jungle tours. Each of the three places is fairly quiet and has accommodations right from the height of luxury all the way to backpackers spots to offer something for all budgets and make this cozy, beautiful location in Thailand accessible to all to experience. In fact, if you like the quieter side of things while on vacation, Khao Lak is not just a place that is perfect as a family holiday but also for anyone who wants to relax and unwind in nature and In my opinion, it is the ideal honeymoon location, as there are many attractions that are impressive and interesting, while not too flashy and intrusive. If you want to go and Khao Lak at a particularly quiet time of year, I would recommend going in low season months, which are from April to November.
As I mentioned earlier in this post; There are homes that suit all budgets and meet most tastes and requirements in a place to lay their heads on. We chose to rent a villa in a resort as we know from experience that this will make our lives easier with their staff at all during most hours to support us with what we needed. Also we like the privacy you get with a villa while you still have a resort swimming pool, bar, restaurant and in this special case – a kids club that suits us perfectly. So during the days we could let the kids enjoy what the Kids Club had organized for that day while my wife and I wanted to go out on our scooter or on a guided tour to explore the nearby attractions and places of interest – which one are many. The villa also had a fantastic sea view of the beach, which according to local people had the best, most beautiful sunset in the province. The beach is your ideal, soft sandy beach, and the seawater is hot and as clear as possible. In fact, it's deep to dive in this area, as there is plenty of sea life and many interesting things to see. So if you enjoy diving, make sure to book some fun dive when you visit Khao Lak.
