Weather Overview for Khao Lak
Khao Lak is a seaside resort situated in the Takua Pa district in the Phang Nga province of Thailand, which is 100km north of Phuket. The currency in Thailand is baht. The weather is warm throughout the year making this a great location for families with or without children who want to enjoy the activities which Khao Lak has to offer.
There is the beautiful and peaceful Khao Lak beach with its golden sand and various attractions / activities on offer such as excursions to fishing villages, coral reefs, islands, waterfalls, caves and a nearby jungle. You might also want to visit the national park or other local beaches. Khao Lak mainly caters for families and people who need rest and recuperation; it is not a lively town and its name is derived from the National Park ‘Khao Lak-Lam Ru’.
Unfortunately in 2004 the devastating effects of the Tsunami (Indian Ocean earthquake) hit this town, when the destructive wave hit nearly all nearby coastal areas. Most coastal resorts were demolished or extremely damaged with huge loss of life and the event was a massive hit to the local economy. At the time Khao Lak was one of Thailand’s fastest growing tourist destinations and it was consequently dramatically hit. However, Khao Lak has now recovered from the devastating effects of this natural disaster and its tourism is blooming again.
