Mai Khao

Trip Planner Asia  /  Thailand  /  Phuket  /  Thalang District  /  Mai Khao
The vast stretches of beach in Mai Khao, once a nesting area for the giant leatherback turtle, are home to various aquatic and relaxation activities. Known as the "airport beach," thanks to its proximity to the airport, Mai Khao has proved extremely popular in recent years. Add a walk in the nearby national park to your Mai Khao itinerary. Venture out to some of the undeveloped portions of the park for a glimpse of some untouched plant and animal life. Customize your holiday with our Thailand tour planner to create an adventure that suits you.

Where to stay in Mai Khao

While there are plenty of accommodation options in Mai Khao, be sure to book well in advance if you're traveling here in high season: January is the most popular month. Look for guesthouses and hotels in the northern part of the region if you enjoy sightseeing, long walks, and relaxing in pristine nature. Be sure to conduct a lot of research before you set off or book anything, as a lot of websites can contain false or misleading imagery. Budget-friendly options in Mai Khao include camping--camping areas are abundant here--as well as bungalows. However, those who want to splurge on their beach retreat will find opportunities to do so in Mai Khao's holiday resorts and hotels.
