About Ao Nang

Ao Nang is a small resort town and the busiest beach destination in Thailand's Krabi Province . Although development here has gone unchecked and become rather unsightly, the beaches, with their limestone headlands tied together by narrow strips of golden sand, are pretty likable. Boat trips are available to many surrounding islands. One of the most popular getaways is Railay Beach , reachable by a 20-min long-tail boat ride. The most popular activities in Ao Nang, besides lying on the beach, are nearby rock climbing, mangrove tours, and scuba diving. Try Poseidon Dive Center for a reliable outfit.

Over 100 elegant and comfortable resorts are scattered under the coconut trees by the sea. The beach extends to the foothills of the very famous limestone formations. At the end of the beach is a cliff with mountains and lush virgin forests. The amenities are convenient and easily accessible. Most visitors to Krabi come here. This is a great place to swim, sunbathe, stroll on the beach, and enjoy the sunrise and sunset.
Krabi Town
4.4/5
591 Reviews
Town
The Town of Krabi is located at the mouth of the Krabi River. The town is very attractive, and it has a casual atmosphere. The peaceful and beautiful Krabi River passes through the town. The river has large mangrove forests that are home to many monkeys and other wild animals. There are fisheries on the river that raise unusual fish, which attracts tourists. If you’re free, a walk along the river is also enjoyable. The town has several night markets unique to Krabi, so tourists from Ao Nang have to rush into town. The food at the night market is cheap and delicious, so it’s a real treat.
Railay Beach

Beach
Krabi’s Railay Beach is divided into East Railay, West Railay and Phra Nang. The beaches require only 10 minutes to travel from East Railay to West Railay. The beaches are connected by walking paths through large resorts. Railay Beach is a famous destination for rock climbing with its numerous rock faces and caves. Rock climbing is mostly concentrated in East Railay, where aside from ordinary practice walls, there are also mountainous rock faces on either side of the beach that make great challenging natural climbing sites. The turquoise water of the beaches make a trip to Railay a very special experience.
Hong Island
4.5/5
367 Reviews
Island/Peninsula
The Hong Islands can be easily reached by speedboat or long tail boat from Krabi. “Hong” is the Thai word for “room”, alluding to a small gap on the north side of the mountain. Entering this gap by boat, you can see an inner bay surrounded by a large, limestone mountain, making it feel like a natural room. There are mangrove trees scattered around the bay and the water is clear and serene, creating a surreal atmosphere.
