Our below map is an easy to use tool to see how to get to Khao Lak from Phuket Airport, the main entry point to hotels and beach resorts in the south of Thailand. Khao Lak is located 90 kilometers from Phuket and 125 kilometers from Krabi. Most visitors will first fly to Phuket from where private taxis are available for transfers. If you wish to travel much cheaper, take a taxi as far as Phuket bus station where you can purchase a ticket for Takua Pa, the Khao Lak town centre. Tickets cost as little as 100 Baht.
Alternatively you can arrange transfers with your hotel and be picked up at the airport. It will be more expensive, but convenient. If you will be renting a car to drive your self and want to see the route to follow together with factually correct directions, simply type for example "Phuket" in the field marked "FROM" just below our self drive map you see here. It's as good as a Garmin
Though the area sees frequent travel it is not as touristy as some other areas. The area's biggest attractions is its natural beauty, its pristine beaches, beautiful forest parks, many offshore islands to visit in famous Phan Nga Bay and enticing diving opportunities.
