Ramada Resort By Wyndham Khao Lak

Khao Lak is a remote coastal town a few kilometers north of Phuket. Though it was once ravaged by the 2004 tsunami, Khao Lak has now regained its allure and charm. Many people are now rediscovering what this beautiful stretch of land has to offer. With pristine beaches on one side and lush rainforests on another, Khao Lak makes for a great tourist destination.

With a perfect mix of sand, sea, and green, Khao Lak has a little bit of everything for every traveler. For couples and honeymooners, it’s a great place to enjoy Thailand’s world-famous beaches and make precious memories together.

In this article, we’ve rounded up eight activities for your next romantic holiday in Khao Lak:

1. Beach Hopping
Khao Lak is blessed with mile-long beaches that have soft, billow sand and crystal clear waters. Despite the influx of tourists, it has remained untouched and unspoiled. Popular areas among honeymooners and newlyweds are the main strips of Nang Thong and La On Village. These are located at the central district with bustling shops, bars, and restaurants. Beach resorts here offer premium accommodations for the ultimate relaxing vacation.

2. Snorkeling and Diving
Khao Lak’s waters are home to various marine species and vibrant corals. There are also several shipwreck dive spots here worth exploring. Ask your hotel to arrange snorkeling and diving trips for you and your partner.

3. Experience the Turtle Festival
Every year in October, sea turtles come to Khao Lak’s shores to lay their eggs. By March, baby turtles start to hatch and are released back into the ocean. Locals celebrate this with a Turtle Festival every first week of March. Visit the turtle sanctuary in Thai Muang National Park Beach and spend a day learning about marine conservation. Watching cute little hatchlings wade to the open waters is a spectacular sight to share with your partner!

4. Explore jungles and rainforests
There are two national parks in Khao Lak: Khao Lak Lam Ru National Park and Thai Muang National Park. These protected rainforests shelter lush vegetation and indigenous wildlife. Spend a day here and explore nature at its finest. You’ll find caves, waterfalls, and majestic limestone cliffs. If you’re lucky, you might even spot a few animals such as gibbons and flying lemurs.

5. Take a cooking class
A fun way to explore a culture is through its cuisine, and Thailand’s flavors are vibrant and exciting. Taking a cooking class is a great bonding experience for you and your partner. You’ll go to the local market to shop for fresh ingredients before learning how to cook traditional Thai dishes. When you go home, you can amaze your friends and family by serving sumptuous stir-fries and Pad Thai!

6. Bike around
One of the best ways to explore a tropical paradise is on two wheels. Go on a leisurely biking trip with your partner and see the best of Khao Lak, as you soak in its beautiful scenery and countryside. You can rent bikes at most beach resorts for either half-day or full-day. We suggest biking to a small hill and wait for the golden hour because Khao Lak’s sunset is a magical and romantic sight to behold!

7. Shopping at the Ban Niang Night Market
Khao Lak has a lively night market where tourists can shop for little trinkets and souvenirs. Located about 20 minutes from Khao Lak Beach and 10 minute walk from Ramada Khao Lak Resort, this small stretch of stores opens every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday evening.

8. Visit the Tsunami Museum
For a more solemn time with your partner, visit the Tsunami Museum in Khao Lak. You’ll appreciate a little downtime from all your tiring activities, and it’s a great way to learn about the region’s history. Say a little prayer for the victims of the 2004 disaster, and marvel at the locals’ resiliency.

Whether you’re on your honeymoon or celebrating a special occasion, Khao Lak offers exciting and fun activities for couples. For a hassle-free holiday, you can ask your resort to arrange these tours for you.
