Island Getaway off Aonang

 

The towering limestone karst of Ao Nang is breathtaking as well as the azure sea. You do not need to struggle to get as far as Phi Phi, Krabi can offer you its paradise right on the mainland.

Steep rock and limestone cliffs are connected by narrow strips of golden sand. Listen to the waves from the turquoise-colored sea while swaying palm leaves sway and shade the beach. The vibrant beach of Ao Nang is always charming.

With the relaxed atmosphere of a small town, Ao Nang is Krabi’s tourist hub, which is dotted with beach resorts, small shops, and restaurants. If you look for more privacy, go a bit deeper into the adjacent Railay.

Discovered and visited by hippies and backpackers since the late 70s, Railay remains charming with a relaxed atmosphere. With towering cliff that separates Railey from the mainland, the small secluded peninsular is only accessible by boat. Vacationers like to hide here amidst tropical beaches and beautiful nature.

If you want clearer waters for swimming, coastal islands that dot the horizon are a good choice. Diving into the blue sea and swimming among hundreds of colorful reef fish is quite a norm here. Koh Khai (Chicken Island) links to the adjacent Koh Thap and Koh Mor with a narrow sandbar which shows up during low tide. Then, the land bridge becomes a secret haven, perfect for sunbathing. Koh Poda offers a lovely sandy beach and accommodation if you want to stay longer amidst the picturesque seascape of Krabi.

 

How to get there: Krabi is located 485 miles south of Bangkok accessible via highway 4. Local airlines offer daily services between Bangkok and Krabi.  From Krabi Airport, there are bus services to the town and Ao Nang. The fee is 150 baht per person.
