How to get to Khaolak

How to get to Khaolak

At least, it is not so difficult. Most of foreign travelers prefer to drop at Phuket and taking a private transfer to Khaolak. 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 Khaolak. Most of Khaolak Hotels have arrange those private transfer for you.

In case you don't have Island Tour Co., Ltd at Phuket: www.tour-phuket.com is the one I recommend.

 

By Air

Many airlines now fly directly to Phuket from several countries, a stopover a day in Bangkok is unnecessary. However, in case of departure from Bangkok, you may catch a domestic flight by Thai Airways which fly daily to Phuket.

You may start from Hualumphong Train Station in Bangkok to Suratthani Province for 12 hours, then catch a bus to Khaolak. Personally, we don't recommend you to choose this mode of travel.
