Where To Stay In Krabi: A Guide To The Best Beaches To Stay In Krabi For couples and families: Ao Nang . For Honeymooners, Couples & Families: Railay Beach . For Bachelors and solo trippers: Krabi Town. For those seeking luxury & privacy: Klong Muang.
However, Krabi has a popular holiday destination with its beach town Ao Nang , which has also many beautiful mainland beaches to offer. The beaches in Ao Nang and its vicinity are definitely worth a visit. Partially, you can reach them by scooter or taxi and in some cases only with a boat.
Best area to stay in Krabi Ao Nang: probably the most popular place in the Krabi area. Railay & Tonsai Beach: the remote area of Krabi , reachable only by boat. Nopparat Thara & Klong Haeng: a long shallow beach, very quiet, a perfect spot for a family holiday with kids or just a peaceful stay with a few sunset walks.
So is Railay worth it ? Of course it is! Really, in terms of natural setting, Phranang is one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. But I would recommend going slightly outside peak season if you can.
Krabi Town is a good base for doing day trips to cool spots in that area, but I wouldn’t recommend it for a honeymoon. And if you want a beach location then I would probably recommend Railay Beach over Ao Nang .
Which is better Phuket or Krabi ? A. If you are looking for a well-developed place with all the facilities then Phuket is the place to be. On the other hand, if you want to enjoy the bucolic nature and laze around in the natural setting then Krabi is the best choice.
The distance between Krabi Town Pier and Ao Nang is 11 km . The road distance is 18.6 km.
This how you get from Ao Nang to Railay . The boats that take you from Ao Nang Beach to Railay Beach are the traditional Thai longtail boats. Be warned that you will need to get into the ocean to climb up the little ladder onto the boat and when they drop you off you’ll have to jump into the ocean again too.
The distance between Krabi Airport (KBV) and Ao Nang is 19 km . The road distance is 28.2 km. How do I travel from Krabi Airport (KBV) to Ao Nang without a car? The best way to get from Krabi Airport (KBV) to Ao Nang without a car is to bus which takes 45 min and costs ฿140 – ฿250.
Koh Samui is one of the most expensive destinations in Thailand, and is ideal if you have a higher budget and your trip falls between January and August. If you have a standard budget and are going between November and April, Krabi is a better bet.

The pier for longtail boats to Railay Bay (or Ao Nang ) was just a few minutes walk from the hotel. The trip to Railay is about 12km and took about 30 minutes on a lovely sunny morning with calm seas. Our boat arrived at a large floating pier at Railay Bay East – not much of a beach here, it’s mangroves and a bit muddy.
It’s not actually an island, as it’s connected to Railay . As such, it can be nice to conclude a 4-island tour here. It’s then easily possible to walk back to Railay . (More about Phra Nang Beach later in the post).
Railay in high season is quite the place to be, with beach fire dancing, full moon, half moon and black moon parties, impromptu get-togethers and bars with organised live music, Thai boxing and drinks specials.
