Chao Fah Pier Area

The area south and southwest of Chao Fah pier has a mini traveller village feel with several quality guesthouses all vying for guests. Competition is stiff, which translates to excellent value for travellers. It's an easy five minute stroll from most of these guesthouses to the town centre.

Krabi town centre

A handful of budget and midrange options are found in the vicinity of Maharaj Rd. There's no shortage of shops and restaurants and the town centre is always full of locals going about their business. These spots are also a stone's throw from Maharaj market, in case you want to be as close as possible to Krabi's delicious "curry alley".

Fossil Shell Beach

Fossil Shell Beach is a handy getaway both from Krabi and the hordes of tourists you get throughout the province. It's a laidback sleepy stretch of beach with the occasional passing long-tail about as exciting as it gets. Note that Fossil Shell Beach is several kilometres from either Krabi town or Ao Nang, but white songthaews pass by regularly and can take you to either for 50 baht.
