    Ao Nang is where most stay.

    Railay beach is another but is also not far from Ao Nang and can be visited easily from there.

    I didn't realize that list was Krabi province

    So basically Ao Nang and Railey
    I didn't really love Ao Nang......just seemed like one big strip

    Is Railey a bit more intimate? I knowIng heard the beach is nice

    Intimate? i think so.

    You'd more or less be resort bound if you stayed there....lovely spot though.

    One thing i remember from Railay is the 'sea lice' are quite active. Be prepared.
    A long sleeve rashy shirt when swimming seems to protect the most tender parts that they like to bite or react with.

    If you do stay in Railey make sure you stay In Railey west, not East.

    Good choice. Stayed there a few times. Only downside is Ao Nang beach itself is not nice so if your planning on staying somewhere you can walk to a nice beach Ao nang is not a good choice. It is however well connected with plenty of long tails and speed boats going out to the islands and nearby beaches for the day.

    You are right about Ao Nang just being a stretch along the beach, but it has facilities..
    Railey is idyllic, but has very little...
    So stay in Ao nang and go for Railey for an afternoon-night-morning... have the best of both worlds!

    Ao Nang is ok, but I think 5 days would be enough. Not much going on there, the Bars are pretty boring.
    As others have said its just a place to stay and do day trips to other Islands.
    Plenty of Cheap Accom in the main drag, but I dont think you do cheap Mark 55 but there are also some more upmarket places set back of main street as well.
    have fun mate.

    Would only be for 4 days
    My wife and I stayed up above Ao Nang when we went.....i liked staying there
    The bars they have are enough for me and my buddy...


    I just want to go back to Lamai but my friend was so turned off by Chawaeng that he thinks it is all like that

    Krabi to stay>?

    Not sure if you have already gone but I was doing some research on Krabi today and there is a nice beach a short drive from Ao Nang. Looks pretty spectacular from the pics and vids I've managed to find. There are some resorts there as well. It's called tub kaek beach. Spelling is probably wrong.

    In the distance is Hong island and some others. I've done a day trip there in the past and it's good fun.
