Activities in Aonang


  • Poda Island is another good day trip - you come back with the same boat and only pay on return. There's even an area to the right of where the longtails come in to Poda that's just worth snorkeling (unspectacular coral but a fair few fish).

  • Ao Nang is one of the main gateways for travel to the Phi Phi islands, about 2 hours away by long tail boat, 40-50 mins by speed boat. Many tour operators in Ao Nang offer day trips to Phi Phi. Included in the price (900-1500 baht) is most often lunch, hotel transfer and insurance

  • Koh Phi Phi - 1 day trip

  • Koh Hong Tour - 1 day trip

  • Railay and 4 island tour (1 day trip)

  • Hotpring tour (Namtok Ron at Klongtom)

  • Temple tour (Tiger Cave temple)

  • Krabi City Tour

  • Kayaking and sea canoeing

  • Rock Climbing course, normally taken at Railay or Phi Phi.

  • Diving:
    Dive shops offer a very similar price for the dive courses and dive trips. If you bay more than 4 packages you may negotiate for a better price, but not more than 10% usually.  Sites visited daily include the local islands in Ao Nang bay, Phi Phi Marine National Park, the King Cruiser Wreck site and Shark Point Marine sanctuary. It's now also possible to do a one day safari by speedboat to Hin Daeng and Hin Muang for the chance to see whale sharks and manta rays, or to do some spectacular cavern diving at the 5 islands of Ko Ha Yai. However speed boats are not the most comfortable way to travel unless the sea is very calm and there can be problems finding shade. Some of the more popular dive sites can become very crowded in the high season.

  • Shopping:
    Ao Nang has no shopping malls or supermarkets, but there are plenty of convenience stores and souvenir shops. The vast majority of shops are lined nicely along the beachfront road. There are also a few side roads that branch off into the cluster of crowded shops found elsewhere in Asia. The regular tourist fare (e.g. postcards, magnets, trinkets, etc.) are plentiful as are clothes, shoes, and pretty much anything else you'll find elsewhere in Thailand
