Travel Guide To Thailand: Ao Nang & Krabi



If you are in the process of planning a trip to the gorgeous beaches of Thailand in the south, then you have to take a look at Ao Nang in the Krabi Province. Ao Nang has been popular amongst backpackers for years but as more and more people find out about it, it is being filled with more and more hotels and resorts. 

What's to Love:

Situated right on the beach, this town is only a 30-40 minute drive from the Krabi International Airport, making it easy to get to, especially if this is only one stop of your vacation.

Sleep:


Pakasai Resort is a gorgeous boutique resort located just off one of the main roads in Ao Nang. Great hospitality, relaxing garden setting, and did I tell you about the pool? I know the beach is right down the street but this pool is hard to beat, especially with poolside dining.

See & Do:


Tiger Temple- You'll have to hire a taxi or tuk-tuk to get here but after a grueling climb up over 1,000 stairs you will reach this gorgeous temple with panoramic views and a ginormous golden Buddha statue. Warning: the monkeys will steal your water bottles or anything else you set on the ground!


Phi Phi Islands Tour- There are countless tour companies that offer tours to the Phi Phi islands, some involve kayaking and others are just sightseeing with stops to swim. These Islands look like what you see on Pinterest or in magazines, super cool, and amazing swimming. 

Good to Know:


I recommend spending about 3 days here, which gives you enough time to take any tours you want, have a beach/pool day, and time to explore the area. I think any more than that might be a bit much unless you are going solely for a beach vacation, then stay as long as you want (it's easy to take a boat to countless other beaches)

It can get windy here and tour companies will not let you kayak if it is deemed too windy. Be prepared for this as your kayak tour may turn into a boat tour.
