Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    I've been in Nakhon Si Thammarat province in the southern gulf of Thailand since 2017 2020 Though Just now again in June 2024 it hasn't changed a great deal - its a place where things are unfolding nice & slow & not to much - Heartland southern Thailand the jungle province, home to about 1.56 Thai nationals. A Thai hotel family have just opened LUX Talay Khanom Hotel & they have another gorgeous new funky Resort YOKATA 7km down the long beach road, Next door to "AAVA resort & spa" - AAVA too have dreamy luxurious ocean front Pool villas I highly recommend all three hotels for Khanom Beach . Between these hotels is 7kn of endless palm trees beach & jungle .
    If your coming from Ko Samui its a ferry ride & about 20 minutes drive from the mainland ferry port to Khanom - drive through mountains timber and palm plantation forests the occasional wandering cow drive to the conditions & that is calm & peaceful./or fly in from Bangkok to Nakhon si Thammarat airport & organize a transfer its about 1 hour north to Khanom

    I think it is perfect for young families there are not a lot here right now. Be planned with transport transfers etc, this is not the place you want to rely on the public transport i don't think - I haven't seen any (& that's not a bad thing) - The ocean here is more shallow and shallow for a ways out Perfect to get your young kids antiquated with Ocean Swimming.
    The resorts I mentioned are medium to high price range but all three well worth the money, Exotic resort experiences- you really dont need to go anywhere they are fully catered - there are a few business around these remote Hair salon across from AAVA bike rental CCs next door about 10 bucks per day . Khanom seafood has 2 location 1 next door to AAVA & another a couple of Km's round into the Cove on the Hillside I recommend you go there its a Sublime place to enjoy Delicious Thai foods and seafood. The prices is a perfect as the foods.

    i can see you could do it cheaper if your prepared to just go basic there are heaps of options really along Nadan beach road.
    I ate lots of street & market foods in Khanom town and never once ended up /on or over the toilet so thats says something the local food here are cooked daily for the local consumption great markets with interesting new foods sweets fruits.
    NOTE: I have the luxury of a Thai husband so it does make things a lot easier for me in this location. English is not widely spoken so plan your trip here meticulously end to end you will no be able to find easy help or support.

    You may spend an hour in side. There is T Rex, Pagoda, Guan Yin rocks and etc. We got a local guide which explain a lot of information. But for foreigners better to bring your translator.

    This beach is super natural. No tourist. No bangalow nor resort. Next time, I'll over-night at this beach. A full moon day should be best time.

    This was really nice visit after a tour of other places in Khanom, so dip in the cooling water was more than welcome.

    Might require some walking, depending of the car / scooter as the road is in bad shape.

    There is a damn wall build to gather the water so there is place to swim. So really easy to access the water.

    we found kwang pao beach maybe 14 kilometer in the north of khanom it is well posted from the mainroad.
    the beach itself is formed like a halfmoon and fine sandy. some resorts and beachbars are located in the back, but it seemed that not very much tourists found the road to kwang pao beach. it was realy empty and we were the only white tourists we saw. at kwang pao beach...generelly on the different beaches of the khanom area mosty thai people take their holidays. this depends on the cheap prices for resorts and restaurants, which sill exist in that region.
    we had wind and waves and we just moved hippdeep into the water, but it was deep enough to write that the beach slopes gently to the sea and so kwang pao is perfect for families with small children.
    the beach is well protected...at the northend are cliffs located...at the southend theres a pier with a few seafood restaurants and shops. the vegetation directly on the beach is reduced, because behind the resorts and restaurants a beachroad is located. a umbrella should be in the morning till the afternoon in the beach luggage.
    in the later afternoon shadow spaces are available enough.
    the atmosphere at kwang pao beach was realy silent and paeceful. we were alone at the beach the whole time under a shady tree and enjoyed the silence and the sound of the gulf of siam.
    kwang pao beach is s very nice place for shellcollectors. during lowtide we found a lot of beautiful shells and mussles of different kinds and we were very proud about our collection.
    we can recomment kwang pao beach very much. it is a beautiful silent beach with a very high grade of relax. the question is how long this will be the case, because in a few years the area of khanom and it´s beaches will be touristic explored without question.

    Suan Ta San is a great location for families to spend time out in the countryside having fun and also get a foot exfoliation! A fun play area often visited by local families, Suan Ta San Fish Spa can be jam-packed but we arrived as it opened so had free rain of things. Kids will be happily swinging across ropes into the waters, having a splashing good time while the grown-ups were resting their feet in the fish spa area along the stream flowing from Cho Waterfall. There are gift shops and restaurants on site.

    After buy the ticket to Koh Phangan I still have time around 1.30hrs. Where I have to go!!!

    My friend suggested me to Suan-Tasaan because just far from Raja ferry around 10kms. I ride to there and let’s enjoys.

    Turn left from the road I can see Durian Mangosteen and Palm garden look nice. Pay ticket 20 bath for entrance and good welcome from the owner.

    Big green space side the small canal that is the real natural. 2 part of the area, left side for fish nibble feet and right side can be swim. The place have a good take care it’s cleaned. Food and drink serve.

    I recommended for someone want to try real natural fish nibble feet.

    We live in Khanom. This is a quiet village in the south of Thailand, which is famous for its deserted beaches, lack of tourists and pleasant proximity to the iconic islands of Koh Phangan and Koh Samui.
    The main attraction of Khanom are pink dolphins - throughout the city you can find their statues and images. The pink dolphin itself is the symbol of the city. But the fact that pink dolphins can be easily met in the sea, I could not even dream of such a thing. Now I'm dreaming, because Khanom is the place where they sail.

    I also learned that Pink Dolphins are born gray and gradually become pink with age. The pink color first appears on their stomachs, and will eventually spread throughout the dolphin. So the older the dolphin, the pinker it is.
