Krabi/Ao Nang/Railay Beach, Thailand

We opted to stay in Krabi, but it was a last minute booking. In hindsight, Ao Nang is the place to stay. We ended up taking scooters to the bustling coast, where you’ll find shopping, nightlife, and most importantly, the longtail boats that take you over to tinier (yet still busy) spots like Railay Beach. Railay is absolutely worth the day trip, and you can finish the day drinking cheap beers beneath an always stunning Ao Nang sunset.
