I'm coming to Ao Nang in April for five nights and have booked in at Scandinavian Residence. Has lots of good reviews on here, and is a very good price. However, after looking at maps and that, I'm a bit concerned that it's just a little too far away from he action. It's right up the top of Ao Nang town, then about half a kilometre on the right. I'm no in two minds as to whether I should look to change resorts.
The place I'm staying looks really nice, but a lot of the comments are about a place to get away from it all, and relax. I'd have just had a week on Long Beach Phi Phi relaxing so don't want anything TOO quiet.
I guess what I'm asking is, how's Ao Nang to get around? Are the local transport guys reliable, or are they Phuket-style rip-off merchants? If it's a 50baht hop up the road in a tuk-tuk to get home late at night, then that'll be fine, but if we're going to get hassle off tuk-tuk drivers trying to rip us off then we might opt to stay closer to town.
Thanks for any help!
