But if the beach life is for you, try friendly Ao Nang Beach, Krabi’s prime resort, which combines the relaxed atmosphere of a Thai town with the beauty of a beach resort. Be sure to set aside a whole day for swimming, trekking, rafting, kayaking, snorkelling, scuba diving or fishing at Koh Hong Islands, just 30 minutes away by long-tail boat. This idyllic group of tiny islands offers soft white-sand beaches, coral reefs and a beautiful lagoon. Picture perfect.
You’ll be pleased to know that Krabi International Airport is just 45 minutes away, taking some of the sting out of saying goodbye.
