The Famous Ao Nang Beach + From Koh Yao Noi To Ao Nang – Thailand

Our next stop is Ao Nang, a popular destination in Krabi.
The trip which brought us there was beautiful, both in the sea and land.
Now it’s time to see what the famous beach has to offer.

Here all addresses and extra info from everything you saw on the video:

Pasai Cottage
Address: Pasai Beach, Koh Yao Noi
GPS: 8.099997, 98.619263 (copy and paste in map’s search bar for exact location)
Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/Esanlongtin/

Our hotel was a budget beachfront bungalow with simple bamboo rooms and private cold shower.
Prices were around 600-700 baht per night at the time we stayed (high season).

 

Ta Khao Pier – ท่าเรือบ้านท่าเขา
Address: Koh Yao Noi
GPS: 8.134449, 98.627197 (copy and paste in map’s search bar for exact location)

There slow boats to Thalane cost 150 baht per person and take around 45 min, they only depart from Ta Khao Pier. These boats leave Koh Yao Noi at 7, 7:30, 8:30, 9:30, 11 and 16 hours.
There are speedboats that go directly to Ao Nang if that’s your next destination and you have no reasons to avoid speedboats.
We recommend you to seat on the right side in order to admire the beautiful views during the trip.

 

Thalane Pier – ท่าเรือประมง
Address: Ao Thalane
GPS: 8.142151, 98.747013 (copy and paste in map’s search bar for exact location)

If you have time on your schedule and enjoy spending time in nature and peaceful surrounding, stopping by Ao Thalane might be a nice option.
This location is famous for its scenic sea kayaking, it has a truly relaxing atmosphere.

 

Jinda Guesthouse
Budget Hotel
Address: 247/6 Moo 2, Ao Nang
GPS: 8.032272, 98.822833 (copy and paste in map’s search bar for exact location)

The Famous Ao Nang Beach + From Koh Yao Noi To Ao Nang - Thailand

Our pick was a budget double room with fan and shared bathroom, it cost 577 baht (high season).
The hotel is a quick walk from the beach and the lady who runs it is very nice and helpful.

 

Govinda’s Restaurant
Vegetarian Restaurant
Address: 32/24 Moo 2, 2nd Floor, Ao Nang
GPS: 8.035074, 98.818890 (copy and paste in map’s search bar for exact location)

The restaurant offers a nice variety of vegan options, we recommend it.

 

Ao Nang Beach
GPS: 8.029070, 98.824034 (copy and paste in map’s search bar for exact location)

The long beach is not the most stunning in Thailand for sure, yet is located just in the perfect position to visit some of the dazzling ones.
In our case, coming from a really quite island, spending a day at a busy little city was a nice change of air before going back to relaxation mode.

How To Get To Koh Phangan

By Train + Ferry

At Hualamphong Train Station you can buy a combo of train+bus+ferry ticket (Bangkok-Surat Thani by train, Surat Thani Train Station – Pier by bus, ferry to the island).
Buying the combo helps to avoid overcharge and/or losing the ferry and time once in Surat Thani.

Thailand Vlog: Quality Time Together, Vegan Food, and Train Trip! + How To Get To Koh Phangan

There’s 2nd class seats, 2nd class beds(air-con and fan fares) and 1st class cabin options available at the train, the trip will take around 9 hours.
Best will be choosing an overnight train and enjoy your sleep until the destination, it also matches the morning boat assuring you won’t have to spend the night in Chumphon.
After arriving at Surat Thani Train Station, a 45min bus ride will take you to the pier.
The Ferry ride takes about 1.5 hours.

If you’re not short on time and don’t mind an adventure, the train would be my recommendation. This is the way we’ve done it, and we would definitely do it again!
Traveling by land in Thailand is safe and you get to see more of the country on the way.

Being a busy destination, ferry timetable is extensive, easy to fit with diverse schedules.
The ferry ride takes about 1.5 hours costing around 300-600 baht depending on company and package, running between 6:00 am to 4:30 pm.
*If you purchased the train+ferry combo in Hua Lamphong, the boat is already covered.

By Bus + Ferry

If coming from Bangkok, our recommendation is the overnight train.
That way you can sleep well to later enjoy your day at the beach.

If for any specific reason you want to choose the bus, there are buses departing from Khao San Road and Mo Chit Bus Terminal.

Mo Chit Bus Terminal – สถานีขนส่งหมอชิต
(Also known as Northern Bus Station or Chatuchak Bus Terminal)
*Not to be confused with Mo Chit BTS skytrain station.
BTS(skytrain): Mo Chit Station – Sukhumvit line, THEN TAKE A TAXI.
Best way to get there is by taxi.

Khaosan Road – ถนนข้าวสาร
(Can also be spelled Khao San Road)
Phra Nakhon District, Bangkok
Tip: All taxi drivers will understand “Khaosan Road” without the need to show the address in Thai.

Best Of Khaosan Road (Backpacker Paradise), Bangkok - Thailand
Khaosan Road
By Air + Ferry

There are 2 options available by air:
1- Flight to Surat Thani + taxi/bus + ferry
2- Flight to Koh Samui + taxi + ferry

1-Fly To Surat Thani
This is the cheaper, yet the longer option.
From Surat Thani’s airport, the taxi/bus will take around 1 hour to the pier, and the ferry to the island last 1.5 hour.

2- Fly To Samui
There are only 2 flight companies offering services to Koh Samui, Bangkok Airways and Thai Airways.
The airport is privately owned by Bangkok Airways, one of the most beautiful airports I’ve been.
For this reason, ticket fares are quite high compared to usual flight cost in Thailand.

The advantage here is that the ferry ride takes 30min, you will be much nearer the destinations landing in Samui.
Similarly to Surat Thani, you’ll have to take a 30-45min taxi ride(depending on your pier/ferry company) from the airport to the pier.
