Khaolak is a sparsely populated area rather occupied by the tourism industry here can find many resorts located on the beach .

Thailand’s beaches are fine white – sand caused by coral, and the water is clear , usually resorts offer endless water activities such as jet skiing, Snorkel or small boats rides typical of Thailand.

Peak season is usually from November to March , many resorts offer fine dining set in its own grounds of the hotel , or in the “pool area” ( pool area ) , Christmas Eve is customary in Thailand to launch lanterns lit flame the night of 24 December and many hotels offer this activity.
