Nice place for beach, swimming pool and island hopping. Lots of food stalls for supper. Very hot...
Stay at Ao Nang for the nice, beach holiday feel.
Krabi town is not Ao Nang distant of about 20 kms. Personally I don't much like Krabi, apart from the night markets and a couple of temples.
Visit Krabi town (Friday to Sunday) for the food! & Pu Massage & Spa in AoNang. Look for Ice and her Aunty ! They do superb massage, #awesome experience
Krabi is a good place for relaxation. Everything is hang loose here - dressing is casual and you don't need to doll up yourself for the day.
No rushing for food, no rushing for seats and you can take your time to shop here.
Small quite town. I had tasty local food in night market and bought beautiful fresh fruits there. If you are after night life like Phukat or Bangkok you are in wrong place.
Local people are conservative but very friendly if you respect their religion and culture. If you have time hire a boat and go for a eco-tour on the river.
Cool city. Make sure to go on the weekends. The weekend night market is a MUST to go. Its the only place where you can get super cheap food.
Aonang, have to plan wisely. Make sure that you are there when its not during the peak season. Prices hikes up ALOT. and i mean it by ALOT and makes sure to bargain on .... EVERYTHING
For me, Krabi is good location to who ever loves beaches. The must go place are in emerald pool. Even though we have to walk about 2 km to reached the place called blue lagoon, it would be breathtaking.
Krabi is a small town call Ao Nang, Only have sea sport and travelling to island for swimming, sunten .
there's no shopping centre all are shop house and the thing s are pretty expensive .
Krabi town is small and very easy to access as there are not many streets around. People here are simple therefore their life style is also simple.
One can see many hawkers sell food outside the shops or along the pavement.
Krabi town is small. It is very easy to excess this city centre as only few streets around. One can see an animal statue at the city centre.
The traffic light at city centre is unique with statues of native men on top. Many hawkers sell food outside the shops and also along the pavement. people are having simple life style here.
IF YOU COME HERE TO SHOPPING AND ENJOY FOOD ,THIS IS NOT A GOOD CHOICE. HOWEVER, IF YOU COME HERE JUST TO RELAX AND ENJOY SUNSHINE BEACH, YOU COULD HAVE A TRY
Another Thai city, (Asian) not your average congestion, infrastructure is reasonable with traffic and people moving freely, easy to get around, language can be a problem should one get lost or need directions.
Usually somebody will help, very friendly.
krabi has many attractions that can blow your mind. The people here were friendly eventhough can't speak in other language very well but they try a lot to helps
Didn't really spend much time here, but the city seems busy. Especially on market night. Good entertainment at the market, lots of food choices.
Very nice place for holidays. Be it beach hopping, outdoor/adventure activities, relaxing/spa, shopping, food hunting.
Will be enjoyable for young and old, families, groups, couples and probably honeymooners.
Krabi town is a busy tourist destination with more shops than I could count yet very enjoyable all the same.
It is a pleasure to simply go for a walk or shop especially when you have the beaches right there to take a dip from the heat. Krabi is a good travel hub for many attractions like scuba diving or snorkeling in nearby Phi Phi Island, Elephant experiences in the nearby National Parks etc. A wonderful town and we will return.
70% of them are Muslim, so there should be no pork there, because their foods are cooked with chicken and prawn (that's what I eat during my stay at Krabi).
The place is not bad cos not crowded like Pataya and Patong Beach. People there are all very frindly.
Good beach and island. You can go for relax. Koh Hong is good place for Kayaking. Everything can found at Ao Nang.
The scenery was lovely. The only regret I have is there are nothing to see in their ocean during snorkeling.
But still, I love the scenery. The food very nice and so many choices of handmade gifts from Krabi.
Krabi is nice place to stay and have a lot of activities like Jungle Trekking and Island Hopping. I will come here again with my friends and family and I will recommend to them.
The beach is nice with clear water same with Emerald Pool. I love this place and always in my heart.
Nice place for a holiday but the transportation are disappointing as many tend to mark up price especially for tourist.
In general, service in Krabi is, surprisingly not very friendly. It is also very slow and laidback. Our airport transfer arrived 40 mins late and only after many frantic calls.
Hotel staff did not offer to help but wanted to charge for telephone call to call to check on transport arrangements.
I was there in early 2000 and the local scene was very Buddist with many temples. Today Islam has creeped into the city and many mosques have mushroomed in the city.
What happened ? The city is filled with European tourist who are mostly Christians. One fears to venture out to crowded places with many tourists for fear of some skull-capped fanatic going berserk. And with very little police presence there is a real possibility of danger here in Krabi. Just my 2 cents.
It's a magical land with many charming clean sites inside including nice beach, lagoon, mountain, green sea and white soft sand, with exciting activities: climbing , kayak, snorkeling, swimming, suntanning,people here are quite friendly and smiling What I like to suggest is 1) food shold be better if compared to other parts of Thailand 2) price should be more reasonable.
Stayed in Ao Nang , loved the tiger temple , boat trip 5 island , elephant and hot spring a must , food cheap and just A+++
sangat bagus untuk menenangkan fikiran.. mandi pantai dengan puas dan makanan yang sangat enak.. saya dan keluarga setiap tahun akan bercuti ke krabi untuk aktiviti laut.
You will love the locals once you're in Krabi. The traffic in Krabi is really good to move around. You won't get lost, for sure.
A lot of hotel near the beach. They also provide one day tour service to a few destinations, mainly to other islands with reasonable price.
Must visit the Night Market in Krabi Town, a lot of unique food and art work there. It's open on Friday, Saturday and Sunday only.
To have a long tail boat tour in Krabi Town to look around Krabi River
Went to Aonang, Krabi and stayed in the same hotel in 2014. Back then, it's rather quiet and pleasant beach with nice local street food.
Price was really cheap. While, one year later, went back with family again, prices have increase drastically, about 20%...and more crowded, not sure if it's because of the time of the year that we visited. Overall, prefer the quiet and peaceful Krabi. Hope it'd not be ruined due to the tourist influx.
