Ao Nang Beach and Phi Phi Island

Hi . We want to spend 5 nights in Thailand in January and after lot of reading here we are thinking to stay 3 nights in Ao Nang and 2 nights in Phi Phi Island . We just want to hang around good beaches and chilling at some shacks and restaurants .

Are we taking right decision or you have some other suggestion for us . Thanks

Ao Nang, Thailand

If you want to chill and relax around good beaches, I suggest Phi Phi and Lanta. Ao Nang is beautiful, but it is not exactly a place to hang in January. The beaches are crowded. If you insist to stay in Ao Nang, then you can always take a 10 minute boat ride to Railay, where the beaches are a lot nicer. But again, it is crowded there too.

Thanks . Does it makes sense to stay 2 nights Ao Nang , 1 night at Railey Beach and 2 nights at Phi Phi ? We are planning to book a 5 star hotel in Phi Phi and rest Ao Nang and Railey we can decide when we reach there.

Would we get rooms if we just walk in directly in last week of Jan ? Also any suggestion for a luxury resort in Phi Phi ?

Thanks for your help :-)

I would suggest you to -

3 nigts aao nang

2 nights Koh lanta

Ao Nang is much better than phi phi island as phi phi is over crowded and costly too. From Ao nang you can do 4 island tour - where they take u to Railey, Poda, Tup island which r very very beautiful.

Koh lanta is quiet and more of privacy types:)

Due to arrive in Ao Nang in a fortnight and was wondering if there was much going on for solo travellers?
