Blackpool / Great Yarmouth - if you are English you get the idea..... It is tacky and full of generic pubs and shops stuffed with exactly the same cheap tat. If you enjoy squeezing onto a beach full of Russian guys in thongs and speedo's, proudly bearing there pregnant bellies then this is the place for you. Enjoy! :)

Try the barbecue sunset at the beach! Awsome! One of the most Thailand's beutiful beach! Not so polluted yet, and much more quiet than Railey beach.

There are many tours here,so choose carefully,what you want included,kayaking/swimming/snorkeling/long tail boat etc.The prices vary ,so check around.The islands are very scenic,reminisent of Halong Bay,Viet Nam, the kayaking through the caves is well worth the trip.

Very sorry to leave such a negative review of such a naturally beautiful location; however, we witnessed a very violent act while in AoNang that makes us concerned for folks with young families like ours. We saw a motorbike rental shop (Noui Rentals) owner attack a well-dressed, middle-aged farang in broad daylight. The farang was not behaving disrespectfully or threateningly that we could see. This farang was immediately surrounded by 6-8 Thai men and a bit of google search indicates such mob violence is not uncommon. These Thai made numerous loud racial comments. We also heard snide comments made by tuk-tuk operators when you politely decline their overpriced quotes for a ride. Not unlike the indifference displayed by our young waitresses while dining. Only spent a few days here so I am no authority on Thailand. We are just a family on vacation and were very turned off by the hostility. We have not experienced this in other tourist destinations. Cheers.

Unbelievable views around this beautiful coastline and the Islands out to Sea. Plenty of accommodation and places to eat at reasonable prices. Go for the Four Island Boat trip and see real paradise. Checkout the many day excursions. So much choice and good value.

Ao Nang as it's commonly known, now, like many other Thai Resorts suffers from congestion, uncontrolled parking, broken pavements and dirty roads. Ao Nang Beach also suffers from a broken waste water plant which the Authorities have not fixed for Months and filthy black water is allowed to pour in at the end of the Beach. It's sad but a serious health Hazard, and the stench!

How can the Thais allow their beautiful country to be so neglected?

If these shortcomings could be fixed then Ao Phra Nang could become Thailand's jewel in the crown.
