Bang Pae is located in the northeast of Phuket on the border of the Khao Phra Thaew National Park in Pak Lok district, Thalang.
While there are no beaches here there is still plenty to do.
Nestled in the jungle of the national park is Phuket's largest waterfall, Bang Pae Waterfall, only 5km away is the smaller Ton Sai waterfall which you can get to by foot along the nature trail. Also located in the National park is the Gibbon Rehabilitation Centre.
If you don't feel like doing the hike you could also visit the Elephant Trekking Safari where you can explore the jungles while getting friendly with a gentle giant.
There are also many great places to eat like Bang Pae Seafood. Right on the edge of the mangrove this popular seafood restaurant not only offers fresh seafood but a welcoming, friendly atmosphere too. Sit and relax while you enjoy the freshly caught seafood.
