Ao Luk

Ao Luek, Thailand

The basics

Ao Luk's biggest draw is its sea caves, easily accessible by kayak, including Tham Pee Hua Toe, believed to have been a burial site many millennia ago. There's also plenty here that can be accessed on foot, with great swimming opportunities inside Than Bok Khorani National Park. Most visitors to Ao Luk come as part of a half-day or full-day tour, most of which depart from Krabi or nearby.

When to get there

Ao Luk is warm throughout the year, but rain can be a big consideration in deciding the best time to go. The rainy season starts in April and can continue into November, while January through March tend to be a bit dryer (and, therefore, slightly warmer). If you want to stay cool, your best bet is to opt for a morning rather than an afternoon tour.

Tree Top Adventure Park

An alternative way to explore the Ao Luk district is in the tree tops themselves. Tree Top Adventure Park, one of the area’s most popular attractions, takes visitors through the canopy from platform to platform by way of rope walks, zip lines, Tarzan swings, rope bridges, and even flying skateboards.
