While Khao Lak had more of a quiet beach town vibe over the busy resort vibe of Phuket, we had a hard time finding street food. Our trip to one of the markets turned out to be a bust and our dinner at “must eat” “local” restaurant was just okay. After we realized this, we stuck to eating at our hotel’s restaurant where the food was fresh, decently priced, and tasty.
Oddly enough, Khao Lak seemed to be travel hotspot for Europeans, in particular, German tourists. We found many Italian restaurants and even a really nice European grocery store, but where were all the real Thai food street vendors hiding?
