Ao Nang or Krabi Town

Hi guys,

I will be traveling around thailand for a few weeks at the end of the month and ill be on the island for about a week.

Can anyone tell me if it would be better to go to krabi town or ao nang? I only have 2 days to play with, not enough time to see both places. so which ones the best ??

Which island? Ao Nang and Krabi town are about 15km apart and for 50THB you can take one of the very frequent Songthaews between the two quite easily, takes about 25 mins. Ao Nang is a nice enough tourist town on the coast with a beach, restaurants and a range of accomodation etc and Krabi town is a typical southern Thai town with banks, night market and shops for locals set on the river. Guesthouses are a bit cheaper in town, but Ao Nang is a lot livlier. Take your pick

There is no beach in Krabi Town I would recommend Ao Nang as a base.
