is the best time of year to visit Khao Lak?
You'll hear many opinions about the best
time of year to visit Khao Lak - and, in
fact, it is probably quite a personal
weather is the biggest issue for many people
- just for a start - you might want to check
Khao Lak Weather page. Many people like
low season (summer and the rainy season) as
it is quieter and traffic is greatly reduced
- and hotel/resort prices are often half or
less of the low season prices.
people may be put off by the rougher seas
and some beaches may an undertow and it is
not always safe to swim as the sea reacts to
the weather. Swimming for children in
particular is probably not safe unless you
seek more protected waters. Be safe, ask if
you are not sure about swimming.
to April (cold weather season in the
northern hemisphere) is high season as
people escape their harsh winters and flock
to nicer climates. Some people suggest
November to February as the best time to
come - when Khao Lak is its busiest. If you
are a people watcher, it is also a fun time
to just sip a beer and watch people walk
by. Winter is also the time of year when
the sea is calmer and the water much more
clear - so perhaps better for scuba diving,
snorkeling and swimming in the sea.
there is no bad time to visit Khao Lak - do
your research and you'll not likely be
disappointed. The weather page on this
website can give you many details to help
you make the best decision.
