At least, it is not so
difficult. Most of foreign travellers prefer to drop at
Phuket and taking a private transfer to Khao Lak. This
tranquil beach nestled on the beautiful waters of the
Andaman can be reached by air, by bus, by car or by
train. A flight to Phuket Airport, followed by a road
trip of a further 80 kms to Takuapa town and within an
hour you will be in Khao Lak. Most of resorts have

Bangkok to Khao Lak is relatively punctual
and inexpensive. There are ordinary and
air-conditioned buses. Food and beverages

Bueses also make scheduled stops at local

to Chumporn along Highway No 41 about 500
kms, turn right on Highway 401, passing
Phanom-Suratthani and to Takuapa - Phang-nga
on Highway No 4 to Khao Lak.
You may start
from Hualumphong Train Station in Bangkok to
Suratthani Province for 12 hours, then catch
a bus to Khao Lak. Personally, we don't
recommend you to choose this mode of travel.
