Your Burma liveaboard trip begins and end in the beach town of Khao Lak, Thailand. There’s a wide variety of accommodation available in Khao Lak, ideal for relaxing before or after diving Burma.
Khao Lak is located an hour’s drive from Phuket Airport. Over the last ten years it’s become a popular place for people looking to escape the crowds on Phuket beaches and find a more laid back vibe but still with plenty of restaurants and shops in easy reach.
Khao Lak has a pleasant beach a couple of kilometres long along which are scattered numerous resorts, beach bars and restaurants. About 200 metres behind the beach, running parallel to it, is Khao Lak’s main road, which is also the main road running from Khao Lak to Phuket.
Along the main road are plenty of shops, banks with ATM machines, convenience stores and souvenir shops, as well as more restaurants and bars. Khao Lak is relatively small, so it’s easy to walk from the beach to the main road and also to walk around the town. There are neighbouring beaches a short drive away.
