The Sparrow Bar in Bang Niang is one of Khao Lak's most up and coming live music venues. A great place to enjoy a cold beer or exotic cocktail whilst getting down to a heady mix of classic rock, dance anthems, Thai rock and of course some tropical reggae. All to this to a backdrop of pirates, shipwrecks, pirates, revelry and superb Thai hospitality.
Situated with minimal impact on the forest, Prathong Nature Resort left the natural coastal forest of casuarina and coconut trees standing and built 6 all-natural bungalows just a few minutes nature walk away from the warm, sparkling, azure waters and golden, sandy beaches of the Andaman Sea.

Mangosteen is a tropical fruit grown in the hot, humid climates of SE Asia, namely Southern Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia. The Mangosteen tree is a tropical evergreen tree which supposedly originates from the Sundra Islands and the Moluccas of Indonesian. It is also not to be missed if you are visiting Khao Lak during the rainy season.
Short walk from Golden Buddha Bay on Koh Prathong brings you to Mr. Chuoi’s comfortable, simple, eco-friendly beach huts and his popular bar and restaurant.
Situated amongst the beach forest of casuarinas, palms, and local flora are 7 bungalows near the southern end of Phra Thong Bay. Horizon Beach Bungalows seems to have kept Phratong’s special ecological status in mind in constructing their bungalows with predominantly locally sourced and renewable natural materials inspired by the traditional Thai way with bamboo, palm, and local woods.
Ao Thong Bungalows stand in the shade of coco palms and casuarinas pines only a stone’s throw from the powdery sand and turquoise waters of Khao Lak’s beloved White Sandy Beach. Lush, well tended gardens surround each bungalow adding to the privacy of your time spent on the balcony or chaise lounge in the shade.
Khao Lak is ideally located just one hour north of Phuket Island. For a beachside destination in southern Thailand it is by far one of the most easily accessible. There is no conflicting information like 'many roads lead to Khao Lak'. Only one road leads to Khao Lak, Highway 4 which runs from Bangkok in central Thailand all the way to the Malay boarder in the south. The ease in which you can reach Khao Lak, as well as being the gateway to the famous Similan Islands, is adding to the small town's popularity as a tourist destination.
