Bang Niang is the small town directly to the north of Khao Lak which also has several resorts and restaurants. It’s a couple of kilometres back into central Khao Lak.
If you want to get away from the crowds, Bang Niang is where to head for some peace and quiet. As Khao Lak has become more built up, Bang Niang has seen the arrival of several upmarket resorts such as Ayara Villas, Khaolak Orchid Beach and Khao Lak Emerald Resort. There’s also a cluster of budget accommodation located here.
