BOOK YOUR STAY IN LA ON
La On is the first village north of the Khao Lak Mountain road and is often mistaken for the ‘real’ Khao Lak which lies a few kilometers south.
Home to Oktavia Dive Center and the largest of the villages that make up the Khao Lak area, La On offers everything you would expect from a small but bustling holiday destination. The main road and smaller beach road hosts a huge choice of places to eat with everything from traditional Thai food, Italian, Indian, and vegetarian restaurants in easy walking distance. There are also some great coffee shops and cafés around for those who need caffeine hit or fancy slice or cake and a fully stocked supermarket aimed at western tastes.
The beach of Nang Thong has many high end resorts hidden along the shoreline and there are many much more affordable hotel options on the main drag itself.
