Khao Sok National Park

The park is rich with diverse flora including certain families of lotus, white palm, and fern. Khao Sok is also one of the best bird-watching spots in Thailand.
The Khao Sok’s rainforest is older and more diverse than the Amazon Rainforest.

Towering limestone cliffs on the beach and lots of hikes and caves to explore plus sea kayaking. The best/quietest/least developed area is Ton Sai beach. We recommend a unique resort there with rental houses and a private area of land, but book early as they fill up.
Off the beaten track, this Thai town was settled by the Hokien Chinese and has great markets, hot springs and access to the northern islands of Koh Chang and Koh Phayam. Only an hours drive from Kuraburi Pier.
If you must go to Phuket, we would recommend the extreme northwest region, north of the airport, or the extreme southwest secret spot that we like. Both feel secluded and escape the over-development that plagues Phuket.
If you want an easy family-friendly beach area close to Koh Ra, Khao Lak is it. About an hour away to the south, it is a resort-strip along the coast. It’s not amazing but it is easy and there is a nice beach and restaurants to walk to.
