Hi Alan, we visited Khao Lak for the first time in May (13th trip to Thailand though)!! and absolutely loved it.
We stayed at the Kantary, which was fabulous and one morning we walked along the beach past the Sarojin and it started to rain so we stopped at what looked like an overgrown, vacant resort?? There was a guy there doing some gardening (I think). We were wondering if you know much about this place?? Was it damaged in the Tsunami??
We found it really interesting.
Look forward to your reply and YES we are returning next year to Khao Lak, this time with friends!!!!!
