Paklok in PhuketPaklok is located on the east coast of Phuket, heading up towards the Khao Phra Thaew National Park. The small village stretches east from the Heroines Monument to the outer eastern coast. It is home to many of the most rural tourist attractions on the island. The Gibbon Rehabilitation Project, the Phuket Elephant Sanctuary, the Tonsai Waterfall, and the Bang Pae Waterfall are within its boundaries.
Paklok is a small village mostly inhabited by locals. There you'll find a few amenities such as local stores, a Thai school, a gas station, and the National Park. However, closer to the monument, you will find several Thai restaurants, a few 7-11, and Super Cheap stores. The newly built Precious Gems Museums and Jewelry Store is also nearby.
The roads leading out towards the outermost points of Paklok are very poorly light and quite windy. We recommend caution while driving at night as there have been many (non-fatal) accidents out there.
