The first time we visited Ao Nang we were not immediately charmed by this busy coastal town in the province of Krabi. The main beach (Ao Nang Beach) opposite the busy boulevard has a kind of shell sand and was quite crowded. We also went crazy of all the restaurant staff trying to lure us in. This was not the reason why we travel all the way to Thailand, right? Still we are a lot more positive about this lively seaside village than we were, why?
After giving Ao Nang another chance we started to see the charm of this busy seaside town. Now we regularly come to Ao Nang that never bores us! You can eat amazingly well here, have a nice drink late into the night and then fall asleep in one of the many good accommodations Ao Nang has!
From Ao Nang Beach you can easily book a tour or transport at the many travel agencies, which you see every few meters. Besides Railay, Koh Phi Phi and the national park Phang Nga Bay are very popular and can often be booked until the day of departure. You can also easily book your own snorkel trips to surrounding islands, such as the 4 islands tour. The airport (Krabi International Airport) is only 25 kilometers away and is also an excellent base to explore Krabi and its surroundings.
