Nang (อ่าวนาง) is the busiest beach destination in Thailand's
Ao Phra Nang ("Princess Bay") although everybody uses the
form, Ao Nang is the most "Westernized" beach in Krabi, originally a
backpacker hotspot but now moving slowly upmarket as the airport brings
in higher flyers. While not quite as scenic as Rai Leh,
there is a good range of cheap accommodation, many good restaurants,
easy transport and travel/tour agencies ready to cater to your every
whim, making it a good base for exploring Krabi.
yourself in Ao Nang is easy: almost everything is located either along
the beach, which runs west-east, or along the Airport Road
(Hwy 4203) which goes up north from the east end of the beach.
Long-tail boats arrive on the beach near the junction of the two roads;
these long-tails, though, create a problem: the level of noise
pollution arising from an endless stream of undampened boat motors
during high season is substantial. As long as visitors are ever
increasing this problem will continue to worsen and detract from the
beauty of this beach.
International Airport is about 40 minutes away by car. As of 2005,
the local airport limo monopoly charges a fairly steep 600 baht for a
transfer (up to 4 people). Many hotels will arrange a pickup at similar
prices on request. Travel time is about half an hour.
shuttle buses — really just converted pickup trucks (songthaew)
— run from Ao Nang to Krabi (50baht) and from Krabi to the airport (50
baht). The total trip between Ao Nang and the airport takes little less
than 2 hours. To get to Ao Nang from Krabi town you should look for a
white songthaew outside the 7-11 shop.
is a big bus service from the airport to Ao Nang beach and Noppharat
Thara Beach (just after Ao Nang). There are hourly services. It travels
from the airport to Krabi, the ferry terminal, then onwards to Ao Nang
and Noppharat Thara. Good for some sight-seeing. Rates are 150 baht per
person and travelling time to Ao Nang is 1 hour.
buses stop at one place on the hill outside Krabi, and then a smaller
van will take you to your hotel.
the return trip, you can call the hotline 1 day before to arrange
pick-up at your hotel. Or you can wait at any of the 4 bus stops in Ao
Nang (one is in front of McDonald's) and Noppharat Thara. You need to
be there at least 10 minutes before the bus is due to arrive. You can
buy tickets on the bus or in any of the tourist information points.
West and Ton
Sai are only 10 minutes away, while the less developed Had Yao
(Long Beach) is 25 minutes away by long-tail. Boats leave constantly
from the east end of the beach and charge a flat 100 baht/person during
the day, 150 baht/person at night (after 18:00). There is no pier so
expect to get at least your feet wet, probably more. Long-tail boats
from Aonang are available at all seasons, but subject to the weather.
In the monsoon season (May-Oct), getting to Rai Leb from Ao Nammao is
are also public ferry services to Ko Phi
Phi and Ko Lanta (usually twice daily), for which any
travel agent will be happy to sell you tickets at around 200
baht/person. During the monsoon season, the ferry runs once a day.
from Ko Lanta now arrive at the new jetty, from there take a taxi (350
baht), or local bus to Krabi (50 baht) and then on to Ao Nang (40
is a songthaew (shared pick-up truck/taxi) service to Ao Nang from
Krabi Bus staion and Krabi Town, which runs throughout daylight hours
in low season and up to 22:00 in high season. The fare is 50-100 baht
and they can be expected every 10-20 minutes. Songthaews are colour
coded according to destination so make sure if you are coming to Ao
Nang from Krabi you get on a white one.
find one of these white ones in Krabi, go to the Vogue Shopping Centre
on Maharaj Rd (the main road). They go from here and cost 50 baht. They
also go from the bus station for 60 baht if you buy from the counters
and not from touts.
coming from Krabi, the songthaew came along the beach before climbing
the hill at the end. Going back to Krabi, it was the opposite direction
to get to town and the bus station.
in Ao Nang charge a flat 30 baht/person for trips around town.
Songthaews also run all across Ao Nang onto the Shell Beach (See) and some all the
way to Krabi
town, fares from 10 baht up depending on distance.
a motorbike is a great way to explore some of the sites outside of Ao
Nang. There are shops up and down the major strips and you can get a
reliable bike for 24 hours for 150-200 baht.
- Fossil Shell Beach (Thai Su-san Hoi,
"Seashell Graveyard"). Some 7 km west of Ao Nang, this mildly
tourist trap-like attraction has slates of compressed, 40 million year
old shellfish, which bear a small resemblance to concrete. There's also
a small grubby museum and a huge slew of gift shops. Entry is a steep
200 baht for foreigners, but only 20 baht for Thais. This tourist trap
is simply not worth the 200 baht you have to pay as tourists unless
maybe you are a geology student. As the official Krabi tourism website
(rather honestly) states "most are either engrossed in this or totally
- Nopparat Thara Beach. Picturesque beach at the
tip of Ao Nang, zoned as a national park. During low tide you can walk
up to some of the nearby craggy limestone islands. However ask the
locals if it is 'jellyfish season' before plunging in if you are the
only one getting ready to take a dip.
- Rai Leh Beach. A nice beach near Ao Nang, which
be reached via a long-tail boat. It is actually part of the mainland,
but is cut-off by the limestone hills. The beach is cleaner than the
ones at Ao Nang and Nopparat Thara, and there are some caves worth
exploring. There are also hotels and resorts on the beach. In the
off-season, it can be a drama to get there! The long-tails want to
collect 800 baht for the crossing, so they wait for the required number
of passengers. There are two companies who do this, one at the left end
of the beach (facing the water) and the other some several hundred
metres to the right. If you do not get a return day ticket you will
have to return with the other company. In the off-season, from May,
there are few tourists and you may have to wait a long time to get the
required number of passengers, or pay the 800 baht yourself!
Phi Phi are just around the corner and there are many tour
operators offering activities such as sea kayaking and elephant treks.

Nang has no shopping malls or supermarkets, but there are plenty of
convenience stores and souvenir shops. The vast majority of shops are
lined nicely along the beachfront road. There are also a few side roads
(sois) that branch off into the cluster of crowded shops. The regular
tourist fare (e.g., postcards, magnets, trinkets, etc.) are plentiful
as are clothes, shoes, and pretty much anything else you'll find
elsewhere in Thailand.
consider a 3-piece tailor-made suit which cost roughly 1,000-2,000 baht
depending on quality of wool. Most of the tailors can get the suit done
within a day. As of October 2011, tailored men's suits are 4,500-6,000
baht (150-200 dollars) and tailor-made shirts are 850-1,000 baht
(roughly 25-35 dollars).
Ao Nang there are some restaurants that have a "Clean food, Good taste"
sign. This signifies that dishes are prepared with boiled water and
that the food is always good, all for a reasonable price. All
restaurants with this certificate will be more than satisfactory in
will pay double the price in Krabi. Main courses are about 150 baht,
and seafood very much more (starts at 250 baht). If you are a
backpacker, look for the street stalls or restaurants at the top of the
hill well beyond McDonalds!
cheap eats, there are a few street carts scattered about, although most
serve backpacker fare like banana pancakes (15 baht a pop). The fried
chicken lady in front of the Tipa Resort does a pretty mean som tam
(papaya salad) at 40 baht though, and also look out for the
yellow-signed noodle stalls with a "4" in a bowl as their logo, which
dish out a garlicky but tasty bamii muu daeng (roast pork
noodles) for 25 baht.
pad Thai served in in a stall named "Kai Tieun Restaurant" is good and
cheap. The noodle itself is not spicy and you need to add the
condiments available on the table to make it spicy.
stall in front of the Adidas Store serves rice-type lunches at 20-30
baht a box. The "Kao Nam" (similar to Nasi Briyani in Malaysia) is
superb. Be careful before ordering "Keng Mu" (minced spicy chicken meat
with rice) though, be prepared to gulp in lots of water to counter the
the places along the beach are more expensive and the ones up the hill
tend to be cheaper and better value.

- The Boat Cafe on Airport Rd (opposite the 7-11)

is the large number of locals coming in for an evening meal.

girlie beer bars. On the Ao Nang beach front there is now only one such
bar, Planet Ao Nang. Paz (frizzy hair) and the gang down there are
awesome, great fun! Further down towards the Rai Leh-end of the beach
is Last Fishermans Bar. Both are good for watching the sun go down over
the ocean. Center Point, on the main beach road near Burger King, has a
bunch of bars catering for most tastes. If you're into live music,
Rocky Bar, and KR Bar are best. There are some bars along the dirt road
opposite Vogue Resort and Spaghetti House, including Magic Rock Bar,
Football Bar, and and Chilli Bar .
These bars offer great views of the cliff in a relaxed, open-air

2011-2012 season there were troubling reports of robberies in Ao Nang.
Groups of local teenagers robbed a number of houses rented by
foreigners, stealing stuff like laptops, cameras, smartphones, clothes
with keys and money in the pockets. In addition, there were reports of
local teenagers attempting to rape foreign females. The criminals who
commit the sexual assaults often have weapons such as knives with them.
getting on a boat to get to other locations like Raileh, beware of the
razor sharp barnacles on the rocks. Wear shoes when boarding the boat.
If you get cut, don't believe the boat rider in telling you a
clinic/medic is available at the next island. Seek medical attention in
Ao Nang. They are just looking to get their commissions finalized.
are some simple hints to avoid trouble:
- Close doors and windows at night. Some people say they
robbed at night while watching TV.
- Never leave clothes or bags with documents and money on
floor. Hide all valuables.
- Turn on outside lights after sunset.
- Buy a movement detector, only 400 baht.
- Be wary of groups of teens.
- Avoid walking dark, quiet streets.
- Female tourists should not walk alone at night.
- Never get into a car/vehicle if any bar-worker offers to
you back to your hotel.
- The cliffs and beaches of Rai Leh,
just 15 minutes away by boat, make a great day trip. Phra Nang is the
next beach past Rai Leh and has dramatic limestone 'karst' rock
formations. Names get confusing, as Ao Nang (the developed resort) is
sometimes called Ao Phra Nang. From Phra Nang you can walk across to
Rai Leh East, with its mangroves, and hire kayaks to paddle round the
rugged peninsula. There's also a path from Rai Leh East to Rai Leh West
where the most longtails call.
- Poda Island is another good day trip - you come back with
same boat and only pay on return. There's even an area to the right of
where the longtails come in to Poda that's just worth snorkeling
(unspectacular coral but a fair few fish).
- Ao Nang is one of the main gateways for travel to the Phi Phi
islands, about 2 hours away by long tail boat, 40-50 mins by speed
boat. Many tour operators in Ao Nang offer day trips to Phi Phi.
Included in the price (900-1500 baht) is most often lunch, hotel
transfer and insurance.
- Nowadays, you may depart from Ao Nang to Koh Lanta easily. Ferry runs daily at 10:30 by
Ao Nang Princess. Book it at your hotel, price should be about 400 baht
(as at Nov 2009), and you will be picked up from your hotel and taken
to the departure point, as well as met on the other side and taken to
your hotel there.
- The Tab Kak Hang Nak Hill Nature Trail is found northwest
Nang close to beaches/resorts, a couple of kilometers north of Klong
Muang Beach. It will take you through the jungle and up to a peak with
a fantastic view over Ao Nang and more. A sign claims the hike to be
3.7 km but it sure felt like more. There is a small ladder that needs
to be climbed, but the trail is an easy one if you have decent shoes.
