We stopped in Ao Nang on our trip to Thailand halfway our ten week trip as a way to regroup and relax. When exploring the islands and beach locations along the Western coast of Thailand, it seemed like one of those less busy with tourists. Compared to the likes of Koh Phi Phi and Phuket it was peaceful, quiet and the perfect place to recharge our batteries before heading out on the latter half of our trip.
We spent the day travelling from Koh Phi Phi to Ao Nang via ferry and then an open air mini bus. Tickets can be purchased from hotels, stalls and dedicated travel agents in all of the locations down the Thai coast, and we paid 350 THB (£7) for the half-day journey.
