We are looking at returning to Thailand in January 2012 and was considering Khao Lak instead of going back to Patong. We are a family of four (kids 18 & 13) and just need a nice hotel with a big pool, close to the beach and restaurants, and a few shops to buy T shirts, DVDs and other nik naks. I am looking at the Ramada Hotel as an option. If we enjoyed Patong will Khao Lak suit us a holiday destination.?
PS Do they have the pancake carts here?
