Classic Krabi SunsetKrabi: Across the Bay from Phuket

An easy day trip by car

Explore Krabi if you get a chance the drive is easy to do and beautiful landscape is along the way.

Here though, we'll be talking more about Ao Nang - the beach area just away a bit from Krabi, as Krabi sits on the mouth of a river - slightly upstream from the sea.

A great place to eat in Ao Nang - just off the beach - a view if you twist your neck a bit - is the Navarang Mahal restaurant - Great Indian food - at a very reasonable price.

They have a well-reputed shop in Patong too - but the head chef moved down to Krabi to get this shop open - so all the original flavor is here as well.  Find it on the north end of the beach road in the restaurant mall there.  You'll find the owner a friendly and talkative guy.

A reasonable place to stay - off the beach a bit - but not the best of bargains price wise is the Krabi Seaview Resort Nice bungalows on a hillside, no view, but very clean rooms and only a three minute walk from the beach. 

They also have an excellent, though simple, breakfast buffet included in the price.  The staff are friendly and speak English well.

Krabi is only a 2.5 hour drive from Phuket - if you drive sanely.  While it seems like quite a drive - the countryside is beautiful all the way.  It makes a great day trip from Phuket - or you can spend the night and come back the next day.

Keep an eye out for this guy playing the accordion seaside some Sunday mornings.
