Hi guys,

I'll be in Krabi next month and look at which part to stay at. I'm looking for a nice beach and been told that Aonang is not the place to go.

How's the atmosphere in Railey? Would it be convenient with a fair number of shops and amenities like cash point or money changers?

Thanks for the help and all pointers are much appreciated! :)

I liked Railay Beach when I was there, but that was years ago. Much more upscale than the old hut on the beach days. I would stay in Krabi town when you arrive and daytrip Railay Beach. Take a look at what is offered and price. The rooms may be out of your budget range. Ao Nang is not that nice of a beach. I would daytrip Railay before staying at Ao Nang.

There are many other options besides these two. Chat with the travel shops in Krabi and see if there is something in your price range closeby. Koh Jum or Koh Lanta maybe a better choice for you. Good Luck.
