Photographer's Note

Located around a hundred kilometers from Phuket, Khao Lak is the perfect antidote to the overwhelming touristiness of Phuket and Krabi. The beaches here are long, white, and sandy; the resorts quieter and more grown up; the villages and towns much more authentic; the food a whole lot tastier; and the clubs, touts and ladyboys nowhere to be seen.
