Trip to Ao Nang/Krabi on Chinese New Year holidays

Hello,

Planning a trip to Ao Nang/Krabi on Chinese New Year 2014 [31.01.14 - 04.02.14]. Wonder whether shops/hotels/tour agencies/restaurants/bike rental & etc are on business. How does it feel to be at Ao Nang during this festive period? Will it be difficult to get taxi/bus from Hat Yai to Krabi and Krabi to Ao Nang?

Appreciate your reply. Thanks!

Hi

Chinese New Year is NOT public holiday in Thailand. So there's no impact whatsoever in Thailand unless you're in china town you might see some celebrations or some traffic congestions.

However the bus from Hat Yai with many visitors form Malaysia and Singapore have Chinese New Year breaks its might get busy there.

This year Krabi airport had more than 20 charter flights arriving from China within 3 days. Arrival time was always between midnight and 6 h a.m. and it was very busy. We expect the same for next year. But there were no special festivities.
