Rakkawan Residence is close to the town centre where most of the action takes place. We are proud of the fact there are not really any shopping malls or big chain stores around Khao Lak. Shopping here is much more of a local affair.
In Khao Lak town centre there are lots of small souvenir shops and tourist markets so you can find all the gifts you need to take back home. Beach towels, sun cream and inflatables are all available if you forgot to bring your sea side apparel with you. A few convenience stores and small supermarkets are in town if you need to stock up on supplies.
A little further away are some excellent markets. In Bang Niang is a large tourist Market with lots of food, handicrafts, electronics and clothing. Ask us for a few key phrases at reception so you can practice your haggling skills.
Then at Build Factory is a more Thai style market if you want to see all the local delicacies. Lots of weird and wonderful food for you to experience here. Make sure you try the Durian.
