Scenes of Khao Lak

The above video helps to introduce Khao Lak to those who are new to the area. The video starts with Phuket bus station. It is possible to catch a bus from here to Khao Lak. It is a 60 km journey and takes just over an hour. One of the highlights of the bus journeyis crossing the impressive Sarasin Bridge which joins Phuket to the mainland.

I don't know which hotel the couple with a small child book into but it is nice to see the good service. The baby is shielded from the sun by a parasol as the mother walks to their bungalow near the sea.

The scenes in the market are interesting. It is Bang Muang Market. There are plenty of exotic fruit and vegetables to see. You can see a woman using a machine to shred coconut meat. Coconut has plenty of health benefits; it also makes delicious shakes.

There is footage of the beach. Note the golden sand that is characteristic of the beaches in the Khao Lak area.

Finally, for those who like to escape from the madding crowds look at how empty the beach is during the low season. The weather is fine too.
