Khok Kloi itself is pretty nondescript and lacks any feature to distinguish it from any other Thai town that straddles a major highway. However, it does have a lovey stretch of beach located several kilometres from the town centre, which is the attraction for tourists.
Phuket International Airport is a twenty-to-thirty-minute drive from Khok Kloi.
The town is small and so doesn't have a car taxi service. Instead, there are motorbike taxis. The drivers can be identified by their light blue vests and can be hailed in the town, though the easiest place to find one is at the town's bus station.
The beach is the main attraction. Otherwise, there is a spacious temple in the town, near the large Bangkok Bank office.
Get a traditional Thai massage at Ruen Lanna Thai Massage. The prices are extremely reasonable, and the ladies are knowledgeable and strong. You will get a wonderful deep massage.
The town has a large supermarket that is popular with tourists who stay in the nearby resorts.
