When you think of Khao Lak, your mind probably immediately goes to an image of a quiet beach, where you can relax and unwind without worrying about flocks of people disturbing your peace. As a relatively new beach destination, Khao Lak serves as a place of solace for people who want to enjoy a reasonable level of peace and quiet, as opposed to other beach towns in Thailand where there are tourists and locals left and right.
While there is an increasing number of restaurants, bars, local markets, and shops in Khao Lak, you won’t have to worry about interacting with so many people as there are still places in the island that are fairly isolated, giving you the unadulterated peace you need. But in the event that you need something else to do aside from lounging on the beach, Khao Lak is also the perfect location to go cycling. Its natural beauty and Thai ambiance make it the ideal destination to explore on two wheels.
If you’re interested in hopping on a bike to explore the beauty of Khao Lak, here are the top destinations in the area to go on an adventure:
The Sai Rung Waterfall, or Rainbow Waterfall, is situated in Khao Lak’s tropical rainforest. Here, you’ll find a majestic waterfall that cascades into a lagoon and unbelievably crystal-clear stream, making it the perfect place for a pit stop and a quick, refreshing dip. It’s surrounded by lush vegetation, so you can also explore the region’s wildlife while you’re in the area.
Located near the Andaman Sea, Pakarang Cape offers impressive views of both the north and the south. The cape’s white sand is peppered with shells and beautiful pieces of coral, and the presence of trees is a lovely contrast to the blue waters. A relatively isolated area, this place is the perfect spot to relax, clear your head, and bask in the stunning scenery of Khao Lak’s coastline.
Khao Lak Town
If you want to immerse yourself in the local culture and enjoy some beautiful scenery at the same time, look no further than Khao Lak Town itself. You’ll get to cycle past fields, farms, and forest, and arrive in the town where you can enjoy a refreshing beverage from local cafes. And while you’re in the area, you can also make a trip to the Khuek Khak Temple and pay your respects at the Police Boat T813 Tsunami Memorial. You can also visit the Bang Niang Market to enjoy street food and buy local handicrafts.
Khao Sok National Park
If you’re feeling particularly adventurous, you can head to Khao Sok National Park for a ride through the forest. It may take you longer to get there, but it’s worth it once you explore its awe-inspiring flora and fauna, as well as the diverse wildlife. You’ll also cycle past water pools and waterfalls, allowing you to be one with nature.
Of course, once you’re done with your cycling adventure, you need a place to relax. Seaview Resort Khao Lak just so happens to be the ideal destination, beset with comfortable garden view rooms and relaxing pool villas. Book a stay with us today.
