Phuket Island in the south of Thailand has become a very popular beach destination. It is as beautiful as always, but the number of tourists is a bit much for us, so we’re only overnighting on the way in, and then driving to the north.
So, we drove about 2 hours north to Khao Lak Beach
There are several national parks nearby, so we drove to one and hiked to a waterfall
Another day, we joined an all-day trip out to the Surin Islands to snorkel.
Leaving Khao Lak, we headed southeast to Khao Sok National Park.
