Travel Guide

Khanom Holidays

Khanom is located in the north of the Nakhon Thammarat Province of southern Thailand. Off the beaten track, Khanom is yet to have been inundated by the backpackers and tourist trailers so still enjoys unspoiled beaches and quiet, hidden bays. Despite its secluded location it is relatively easy to get to by bus or taxi from Surat Thani airport. Travellers to Khanom can experience an authentic version of Thailand – tropical beachfront beauty, cascading waterfalls and jungle covered mountains.

Great Reasons to holiday in Khanom

  • Deserted beaches – Nine kilometres of pristine sands remain almost untouched.
  • Great weather – Return home aglow after spending days in the tropical sun.
  • Beautiful scenery – The trickling waterfalls are well worth the trek up Dat Fa mountain.
  • Delicious cuisine – Taste the best massaman curry around. Khanom also has excellent beach bars for your after dinner cocktails.
  • Unique wildlife – The gulf waters off the coast of Kha Nom are famous for one rather special inhabitant: the pink dolphin.
  • Pink dolphins – Did we mention pink dolphins?

Things to do whilst on holiday in Khanom

Cave exploring. Off the main road between Khanom and Don Sak, follow the meandering pathways to discover mystical caves and caverns. At night fairy lights guide the way. A magical experience for the adventurous spirit.

Take photos of the coastal landscape. It looks like a living, breathing postcard so it’s only right that you take some photos of your own. Khanom’s magnificent coastline deserves a worthy vantage point to do it justice. Luckily, Dat Fa Mountain is often deserted so take a hike and strike a pose for those selfies.

Witness wonderful waterfalls. Further awesome views of the coast are to be spied from Samet Chun waterfall. The largest in the area, it descends to freshwater pools where weary explorers can cool off. South of Nai Phlao, Hin Lat is a smaller waterfall that is slightly easier to locate and also has pools for swimming.

Meet the pink dolphins. You can often see them from old ferry pier at dusk but for a closer look, why not hire a boat and take to the waters yourself? Or you could sign up for a day tour which, after a boat trip to observe the dolphins, takes you via car to see Khanom’s waterfalls and caves.

Please enquire at your resort for details on the above excursions / attractions.
