Ao Nang Tourism

A town of multi-views, Ao Nang is one of the rapidly growing tourist centres in Krabi, Thailand. Located in South of Krabi, this destination is known for its long-tail boat tours and limestone islands. Despite the lack of popularity of this town, it still has the potential to be one of the leading tourist destinations in Krabi. It is also well-known for its night walking streets and markets.

Ao Nang is home to golden sand and aquamarine water. This makes it one of the most popular tourist attractions in Krabi. Even though it isn’t fully developed as a tourist city, this place surely has a range of water activities such as diving, ziplining, surfing, snorkelling along with a view of many neighbouring islands. What’s more, Ao Nang offers a great nightlife, something that is not quite seen in other towns in Krabi.
