Where is the best area to stay in Ao Nang?
Located close to Krabi airport, Ao Nang is a great place to stay if you are looking to explore the wonders of the Andaman Sea. Its unique limestone rock formations create a background of extraordinarily beautiful scenery.
The best area to stay in Ao Nang is along the main street or by the beach. The main street is where most of the restaurants, bars and shops can be found. The beach is the departure point for all boats leaving to Railay or the Krabi islands. Ao Nang beach is neither the best beach Krabi has to offer nor the most inviting when it comes to taking a dip, so it’s a good idea to find a hotel with a decent swimming pool.
Ao Nang´s hotels and resorts are set amongst an abundance of nature and even if they are far from the centre, there are hourly shuttle services that will take you to and from the centre, as well as offering motorbike and bicycle hire. There are also many buses to take you to Krabi airport, but the best option is to go by taxi.
