We were staying at a resort close to this attraction so luckily it was not out of our way. Unless you have specific interest in this type of geological formation, give this a pass.
We visited this place when we were staying in Ao Nang. We went by tuk-tuk, having agreed on a return price. The entrance fee was 200 bath according to the signs, but we were asked to pay 100 without bargaining. We don't mind to pay to see attractions, it costs money to maintain the sights and having someone to guard... More
This place is terrible, nothing there. Just a small fossil base which leads to water, literally. And, they even charge you an entrance fee. Avoid and save yourself a drive to no where!
seriously don't bother...this is the second most disappointing "attraction" I have visited in SE Asia.. Pipped only by a dirty rubbish filled hot spring in Sarawak. We have a motorbike rental so for us we didn't have to pay anyone to take us (thank heavens). You arrive into a large car park, nearly completely surrounded with shops, pay your 100... More
the time that we visited this place; there was no entrance fee asked. May be its because it was low peak period and/or no one was at the counter. Nothing much. Slabs of cement looking fossils. From the notice board it was learnt that the place was 75 million years old. This place was good to buy wind chimes made... More
Well! It's a Cemetery - what would one expect! It's a place to visit and just take it as a nice tuk-tuk ride further from the Aonang Beach area. It's just interesting to know how the tides around brings in all the fossils. What was more interesting to me was how a young lady was picking up shells and creating... More
Ok, to pass by and have a look but seriously overrated as most things in Thailand are. Don't get fooled and buy the souvenirs, you can buy exactly the same souvenirs in Krabi town at much cheaper price.
We visited the shell fossil beach as part of a day trip from Ao Nang, flagging down a passing tuk-tuk and hiring the driver for a trip around Ao Nang. We visited the sea water fish farm research centre, the “Nemo Farm”, Shell Beach (sometimes called Gastropod Cemetery), and Ao-Nam Mao beach and pier, where long tail boats depart for... More
We were honestly disappointed. The place is w/out any proper maintenance but they charged you for an entrance fee. It's absurd since there was nothing to actually see. You can't even touch/ stand on the fossils slab. The only highlight of our trip there is that, they have quite a numtber of souvenir shops selling shell made items. I'm no... More
You can taake the public transportation (bus) from Krabi Town to Fossil Shell (60 THB) or from AoNang (30 THB). You had also to pay a entree fee at the Fossil Shell, about 50 THB, ther are a lot of fossil to look at, had seen so manny, and its the only place in the Krabi area you can see... More
