A few hotel satellite businesses have picked up at Khao Lak Beach, 5 kilometres south of La On, making the area more independent and self sufficient.
Just a short stroll away from Khao Lak Merlin, Khao Lak Emerald Beach Resort and The Briza Beach resort, hotel guests can now choose between several bamboo-and-thatch seafood restaurants, an Italian eatery, a couple of bars and two convenience stores, one of which doubles as a tailor!
Hertz rents out cars from the Merlin Hotel and the resorts offer shuttle services to La On.
