The Sands

Hi all, we have already booked the Kantary for 5 nights in Aug and about to book another 5 nights at The Sands. Where is the sands in relation to the Kantary and are there restaurants/7 11 within walking distance? Not fussed if there isn't, just would like to know.

Cheers

Hi we are at The Sands now and loving it! The restaurants are either a 5 min walk to the main road and there are many to choose from or a 10 minute walk along the beach. There are several beach restaurants in a row. Not sure where the kantary is located? Cheers

The Kantary is a 15 minute taxi ride to the Sands. Plenty of them outside the main entrance. No 711s or shops within walking distance of the Kantary, plenty near the Sands.

Hello, we are a family of four, kids 7 and 11 and are planning a trip to Khao Lak in July. Just wondering if we arrive in Phuket at 7:30 pm is it safe to travel via hotel transfer at night to Khao Lak? Is it via freeway/ lit roads? Thank you so much in advance for any info!

From the airport to Khao Lak is virtually the same main highway all the way and well lit for most of its length and quiet at night. Contact Boss of Cheaper than Hotel Taxis in Khao Lak at cheaper_khaolak@ymail.com for a quote for transfer if you habe not already arranged it. He is cheapest, very reliable with good drivers.
