I've just had a rake through some of the photos of Khao Lak on Google Earth and it looks like a ghost town. No people at all! Then I started looking at some of the pictures on the various web sites and again very few people. Plenty of hotels, sunsets and greenery but very few smiley faces. From all the interest I assume plenty of people must go there but do they just stay in their hotels or go elsewhere during the day leaving the place deserted. Benidorm we do not want but part of the enjoyment of foreign travel for us is to meet other people usually over a meal or a drink but this looks like a lonely place for recluses.
We've just about completed our plans (ready to book the flights) to go for a month but I'm having second thoughts. Some reassurance please.
