Not everyone knows, but Krabi – it is not an island, and the province with spectacular cliffs on the mainland near Phuket. All tourists and winterers stop in the small town of Ao Nang (Ao Nang Beach and Nopparat Thara), which is located directly on the coast. The place is known primarily by the fact that serves as a transit point for those who go to the Peninsula Reilly, whose beaches are included in the tops of the planet’s most beautiful beaches. But in Ao Nang is also possible to swim, you just have to keep track of the tides on the table from the Internet, because the tide is not something that to a depth to the water can not reach. But the shallow water good for children. In Ao Nang there is a Tesco supermarket within walking distance, and has recently also Makro, but to large shopping centers have to go to Krabi Town, a 30-km. Krabi is a 2.5-hour drive from Phuket and it has its own airport. Of Ao Nang is also float on Phi Phi.
