Krabi Travel Advice Please

by caittin

Hi. My partner and I (mid 20’s) are hoping to holiday in Thailand in April. We would like to stay in the country for 2 weeks and are hoping to spend a couple of days in Bangkok and then head south to Krabi for 7-8 days and perhaps spend a few nights somewhere else like Koh Lanta or Koh Lipe.
We do not want to become bored. We enjoy nature and adventure but also like to spend some time in lay back bars at night. My questions are as follows, and any advice would be greatly appreciated:
• Should we stay in Krabi for up to 10 nights and use it as a base for visiting other areas, or spend a week there and then a few nights somewhere else?
• Is Ao Nang beach busy and/or noisy with tourists in April, and if we were to stay at Railey Beach is Ao Nang nightlife accessible from here?
• Any recommendations for accommodation at approx. 2000-3000BHT per night?
Thank you for your help!

Hi! We just got back from Krabi 6 weeks ago. I would recommend staying in Ao Nang beach only. Here I would stay only a few nights as it is easily walked in onlya couple of hours and you may be bored after a couple of days here.I could not stay here for 10 nights myself...but others may be able to.
There is a good Best Western on the main esplanade that might suit your budget.
You can stay at other outer beach areas, but you will be paying for taxis every day to get to Ao Nang, because this is where you will find most of the restaurants, bars etc.
Ao Nang is busy, but not too busy...its not as busy as Pkuket.
I would recommend going out to the islands to stay as much as possible. This is where you can do many activities during the day.
Hope this helps. I have some pics of Ao Nang on my site.

Hi, I would recommend staying in Krabi for a few days, there is quite a bit to do there, you can get out to the islands from there, as well as a couple of great day trips. There is the Fossil Beach, the Hot Springs (Khlong Thom) and the Emerald Pool (Sra Morakot) - I have some pictures on my Krabi pages. Krabi is very picturesque, if you like photography. After that, I would head to Phuket, which is only about 2 hours' drive, as it's easy to head up to Khao Lak if you'd like to do another road trip.

We have only spent one night in Krabi, as we usually just go up there on day trips. We stayed at the Krabi Sands Resort, which is at Khlong Muang (same area as Sheraton). It's a small, clean, basic resort with pool and amenities such as mini-bar, cable TV and airconditioning. The prices are very reasonable. Josh, the manager is very friendly and accommodating. their website is; www.krabisands.com and email; info@krabisands.com

1 = good idea make BASE, if u use KRABI as base

2 = you can hop around to other islands and stay for a few night here and there

3 = 10 days in Krabi - some people love it but i think it's a bit too much

4 = AO NANG - if you have a choice, stay elsewhere - not that it's bad but it's the main strip

5 = BE WARNED APRIL 5 - 15 - VERY BUSY SEASON - THAI NEW YEARS - BOOK ANYTHING U NEED ASAP....

feel free to ask if you need more help...

Ao Nang is a good base to explore Phi-Phi islands and Railey Bay. The strip has plenty of restaurants and bars but not as many as resorts on Phuket. There are numerous boat trips or long tail boats for hire to take to nearby islands. We went year before last for 9 nights and are returning this year for 5 nights with 5 nights on Ko Lanta.We stayed at the Krabi La Playa in pool access rooms. Will probably return to the same hotel or may try Krabi Resort Hotel.

Travel Tips for Krabi

Travel Light and Buy There!

by DarkRay

Flip flops and sandals are most ideal in Krabi as most of the time, you will probably be walking on some beach. Some better hotels there actually provided flip flops for their guests as well. You can develop all your photos in Ao Nang, even digital ones. As of November 2003, there are at least 3 photo developing shops in Ao Nang, and 2 are digital ones (Fuji FDI and Kodak Digital). They are very affordable (about 6 baht per photo for 4R) and advance (can even digitize direct from negatives to CD), and the best part was that the typical developing time is always within 1 hour. If you go out to the sea often, bring or buy a dry bag there to protect your camera and other electronics equipment. Ao Nang has a lot of very well-stocked minimarts (especially Ocean Mart) and gift shops and you can probably buy everything you need for your trip in Krabi over there, including the much needed sunblock. Although it is a tourist town, the things are still more than reasonably priced.

Thai Airways

by sacrebleu

The domestic terminal is now also in the new airport and you will only have to be there 45 mins. before your flight. It's not that expensive flying to Krabi from Bangkok but I think you can also do it by train/bus. It's a nice hour long flight and we flew with Thai Airways.

It costs 500B if you take a taxi from the airport to Ao Nang and taxis are not difficult to find. I booked the hotel limou from the airport to the hotel and it cost 700B cos' I thought there wouldn't be any taxis. Unlike what other VTers suggested, Krabi airport is very new and clean and there aren't any mosiquitos. In fact, there was hardly any the whole time I was in Krabi.

One thing we were pleased was we only needed to pay 400B airport tax when we left for home via Krabi the same day. If we checked in from Bangkok, it would have cost 1000B instead.

Grill

by leffe3 about Ao Nang Cuisine

Fairly large, boisterous restaurant, serving BBQed meats and fish. Eat on the terrace overlooking the road or undercover, this is a fun, noisy place that serves good if unsubtle food. Grilled fish and meat

Noppharat Thara Beach

by Cathy&Gary

Located 6 kilometers from Ao Nang is a famous 3 kilometer long white sandy beach lined with casuarina trees and coconut groves.

Noppharat Thara Beach is very popular for picnics with locals and can be quite crowded on weekends. So if you are after a Thai style getaway this is the place to go.

The beach is paved with tiny seashells and was formerly called "Hat Khlong Haeng" which means dried canal beach by locals, because the canal dries up during low tide and the area turns into a long beach.

The sea off Noppharat Thara Beach is part of the Noppharat Thara - Mu Koh Phi Phi National Park, a place of great beauty.

You can also hire speedboats or long tail boats to take you to any of the outlying islands, including Chicken Island, Koh Poda, Koh Tap and the Phi Phi archipelago.

At low tide it is even possible to walk from the beach across to Kok Kao Pak Klong Island in the bay.

Hat Noppharat Thara is part of Hat Noppharat Thara-Mu Ko Phi Phi National Park and is also the location of the Park headquarters.

There are a few very good open air restaurants here as well and it’s definitely well worth spending some time at Noppharat Thara Beach.

Bang Pat Fishing Village

by Cathy&Gary

Built on the water, the entire eight-acre fishing village of Bang Pat, in Thailand’s Phang Nga Province, emerges from the sea on stilts. Boats are the only means of travel, and have long been the only means of survival.

Bang Pat was directly affected by the tsunami, out of 57 houses in the village, 25 were destroyed!

Fishing boats were lost, and engines and equipment were damaged beyond repair, destroying the villagers’ only source of income.

However the village is now well on the way to recovery and the locals love having people come visit them.

We were on our way back to Phuket traveling along Highway 4 and saw a sign for Bang Pat on the left. Another small detour and off we go.

Soon we have mangroves and fish farms on both sides of the road, this is snake country, one little section of the road had dead snakes everywhere plus a big live one that Gary managed not to squash.

(Not on this trip anyway)

Then its time to dodge all the goats running over the road. After about 10 kilometers traveling down this road – it finishes – dead end.

We are surrounded by water and it’s beautiful, across the water we can see a fishing village, we haven’t yet realized that this village is also surrounded by water.

There’s a footbridge (built since the tsunami) crossing the water leading to the village so off we go.

We have arrived at Bang Pat, there are a couple of little local restaurants so we thought we would also have something to eat.

No such luck, they are closed, actually they looked like they hadn’t been open for a long, long time, we did manage to buy a couple of drinks from a local and it was fantastic being where there was not another English speaking person.

We watching the locals shelling cooked crabs, they were so happy to show us how they did this and also to give us fresh crab meat to taste.

We have been back to Bang Pat a couple of times now and it is definitely worth going to, the people are so friendly and happy to see visitors.
