Khao Lak

Few resorts here escaped total destruction in the 2004 tsunami. The scale and extent of the damage also makes Khao Lak the region's greatest success story—by 2006, Khao Lak was, amazingly, back on its feet. Today, aside from a few abandoned buildings, there is no physical evidence of the devastation that occurred.
