The ever popular Ao Nang has so many top qualities tourists always return.
I can never find enough words to describe this magnetic place.
The area, the people, the food, the accommodation are all well worth a visit.
Here is a great article by Paisit Kapilakan which helps to describe the ever popular Ao Nang.
AoNang Krabi – The Paradise on Earth
The white sand beach, tranquil atmosphere and array of activities are enticing tourists from all over the world to AoNang Krabi. This uncluttered beach resort has enough accommodation options that are guaranteed to give you value for money.
AoNang is Krabi’s main beach. The town area is small, yet has sufficient restaurants, bars, discos and shops to cater to the visitors. Though nightlife at AoNang Krabi is not as vibrant as that at Phuket or Pattaya, it is enjoyable in a subdued way with plenty of live music to dance away the night. Most beach bars offer spectacular sunset views.
The beach looks majestic with steep limestone cliffs in the backdrop, especially when drenched in red light cast by the setting sun. The azure calm sea and soft sand beach offer the ideal setting for a serene beach vacation. As the beach is separated from the town by the beach road, the beach area remains free from hotels.
AoNang is a favored destination of those seeking adventure. Various water sports options are there, being a beach resort; but what sets AoNang apart from other Thailand beaches is the presence of sheer limestone karsts that are a delight to rock climbers.
The presence of a slew of islands nearby makes AoNang a preferred base for divers. There are diving schools and shops in the beach area to help the tourists with their diving expeditions.
Snorkeling is another activity for which AoNang is famous. As high season see hectic activity in the beach, off-season is the ideal time to enjoy a snorkeling session. The beach is also perfect for other water-based activities like swimming.
Though Ao Nang Krabi does not receive as many visitors as Phuket or Pattaya, it has enough hotels to accommodate its visitors. The choices include ultra luxury Centara Grand Beach Resort & Villas to budget ones like Ao Nang Beach Resort.
