The town offers many good restaurants..let your nose be the judge. Along the shore are many shops selling the usual Thai beach items. Great bronze statue of hooked sail fish along walk way

We loved staying in Ao Nang over New Years. Great shopping, accessible to lots of tours, and food is amazing. You have to try the Thai Pancake if you see it (banana and cheese)!

Arrived here today and got the shock of my life! The beach is aweful. We came from Khao Lak to here and went to the beach and the idellic location was ruined by the constant noise of longtail boat after longtail boat going back and forth. Maybe some peoples ideal location but so many nicer even cheaper places in Thailand.

Ao Nang is a great little town. All bars, restaurants and shops early doable in 30 mins. It's really meant to be a staging post for trips to the islands both local Hong Island National park look out for the lizards and go staging post to Phi Phi Islans etc

After spending time in Phuket last trip, it was wonderful relief to come to Ao Nang. Great shopping, beautiful beach without the hordes of people like in Phuket. A much more relaxed holiday feel, with good prices in all the shops and markets.

The most popular beach at the area, it has much to offer apart from many fines restaurants, bars and shops. The beach is not crowded and peaceful. The visible limestone are a gems no one can take away, makes a perfect place for movie making.

Located close to Ao Nang Beach, Phra Nang offers beautiful sunsets and great photo opportunity especially during low tides. Across from the Ao Nang night market.
