Ao Nang, Krabi, Thailand
We made a little trip up to Ao Nang outside Krabi in Thailand for the Christmas weekend 2005. We rented a car from A.P. Car Rent to be able to get around the area. They drove it down from Phuket and the price was competitive. We had a bit of a drama when they didn't turn up as arranged at Krabi airport for the return but they said for us to leave the keys in the car. Guess I'll know next time I go Thailand if I now have an outstanding warrent for a car...
We stayed in Ao Nang bay in the newly finished The Verandah Bed & Breakfast.The place has good clean rooms and a very friendly staff. The hotel face a little 'club street' so the music can be quite loud at night, but not unbearable.
We spend the next few days traveling the area and day-tripping up to Phuket and the excellent shopping mall Central Festival for some Christmas shopping.
