Hi everyone!

Just wondering if anyone knows if cabs are willing to go all the way to Khao Lak from the airport??? Cos I was looking at one of the hotels in Khao Lak but don't want to pay their EXORBITANT transfer charges... its 1300 Baht one way! Phew!

Any ideas would be great, cos I will be travelling with the elderly, other modes of transport is probably out...

Thanks lots!!

I have my friend in Phuket..may be he could arrange transfer at special price. Let me check with him and tell you later.

By the way..which hotel in khao lak are you interested in? May be I could find a better deal.

Hi! THANKS SO MUCH for helping

Anyway, I am going to book for the La Flora soon. Any idea how its like??? Am going with my parents-in-law and I think they want somewhere luxurious yet private.

I thought Khao Lak is a good place cos its quieter than Phuket and all my favorite hotels in Phuket are full... Sigh...

OK, hope to hear from u soon before I book the hotel!!

Thanks again!

I was looking at that one...but am a bit worried that it would be filled to the brim with families and kids. .. would it be? But the resort looks very nice!

But it is a bit more expensive than La Flora on the net, and we would like to have a bigger room than the most basic one... what rates do u reckon it'll be for the Deluxe Lagoon room for Sofitel Magic?

Price for deluxe room during period 10 Jan 05 - 30 Apr 05 is Baht 6,300/room/night inclusive of all taxes and breakfast for 2 persons. Extra bed is Baht 800. For deluxe lagoon it's Baht 7,300.

Please let me know if you are interested so I could book for you accordingly. You can contact me at chorpet at

Cabs does go to Khao Lak from Phuket. 1300B isn't a bad price.

If you can read Chinese, here is another good site for Thailand:

Hi Chorpet

Thanks for helping me ask for the price...but think I will go ahead with La Flora. Cos I got a really good deal with latestays for the 2 bed pool villa, and it costs less than 2 separate rooms in all the other resorts!

Thanks lots anyway :)
