My husband and I are thinking of coming to Khao Lak next year in either June or July. What is the weather like in these months, is one better than the other? I'm also a bit confused as to whether you can swim in the ocean, I have read conflicting reviews with people saying the ocean isn't very good for swimming. What do they mean? This is one of the reasons we will be coming.
This will not be our first visit to Thailand at this time and we have never had trouble with the weather but this will be our first visit in the south. I have read that Khao Lak is very open so you tend to cop the whether if its not very nice and it makes it limiting to what you can do. In other places we have just gone to a bar or restaurant for an hour or so until the weather cleared.
I also read recently that you could go to Phi Phi, Phang Nga Bay and Khao Sok National Park from here. I would like to go to all these places but didn't think they were possible from Khao Lak. Will the water be calm enough for trips in June or July?
Looking forward to hearing from all you Khao Lak Lovers. Cheers
