Recommended Attractions


1 Laem Pakarang

Location : Takuapa District Laem PakarangLaem Pakarang is an amazing testimony to the power of Nature which it was once an idyllic seascape, teeming with life and welcoming to human swimmers ... then came the tsunami on Boxing Day 2004 and everything changed.

Huge rocks (right) were dredged up by the power of the waves and left on the foreshore. The natural wonder of a raised sandbank has been used for restaurants. They were washed away and today you can walk out, at low tide, to see where they once offered their culinary delights in an unforgettable setting (below). When you have marvelled at Nature, walk round the shoreline to Ao Thong and the beaches, eateries and welcome shade from the palm trees.

How to get there
Drive north from Khao Lak and Bang Niang for about 15 minutes; look for the 7/Eleven and turn left follow the signs to Laem Pakarang

5 Ton Phrai Waterfall

Location : Thai Mueang District Ton Phrai Waterfall Ton Prai is the larger waterfall next to Thai Mueang beach. After a day of sand and salt sea, spend several spare seconds at this splendid stream to shower. Combined with a visit to Lumpee Waterfall, this can fill an afternoon, and better than Lumpee, you can get into the falling water and enjoy the waterfall fully. There's a nature walk here too, if you want to explore the forest, this takes you up one level to a higher section of the waterfall, where another pool of water is there to play in.

The water here is cold, straight out of the hill and hasn't had time to warm up. Refreshing after the heat of the Andaman sea. I get to clean out the sand from between my toes from the beach and enjoy some cool down time.

Admission Fee 100 Baht (Price are subject to change)
