“Nothingness!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2012

We were honestly disappointed. The place is w/out any proper maintenance but they charged you for an entrance fee. It's absurd since there was nothing to actually see. You can't even touch/ stand on the fossils slab.
The only highlight of our trip there is that, they have quite a numtber of souvenir shops selling shell made items. I'm no fan but at least there is sthing to see.
Anywy, my final advice is that only come here if u're interested to get shells for your home/ souvenirs as there are hundreds/ thousands of shells from the souvenir shops. It's also kind of ironic because you can't find that much of the shells "thingy" in Aonang beach. So, if you find sthing that you like get it here as you're most like not going to find it in Aonang beach.

“The only place where I had seen so manny Fossil.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2012

You can taake the public transportation (bus) from Krabi Town to Fossil Shell (60 THB) or from AoNang (30 THB). You had also to pay a entree fee at the Fossil Shell, about 50 THB, ther are a lot of fossil to look at, had seen so manny, and its the only place in the Krabi area you can see that.

“Not much to see”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2012

Lots of little souvenir shops, but really not much else to see. Best viewed during low tide, but still there just isn't much here.
