Hello lovely helpful/knowledgeable types,
I will be in Khao Lak for a week in early April. I have read that there is still a certain amount of regeneration going on after the Tsunami, and I am keen to avoid any areas that are like building sites (as I live in Doha I get to live on a giant building site every day at home!) Can you advise on a lovely beach area to stay at, but with a reasonably lively and interesting town attached - preferably walking distance or a short cab ride? We don't need hedonistic nightlife but a good selection of restaurants, bars and shopping would be appreciated. I am going round in circles at the moment and can't make a decision!
Also is there any sailing in Khao Lak or is it too rough? Will we be ok in the sea in early April so long as we don't go out too far? Thanks so much.
