Ao Nang Nightlife: Ao Nang Krabi Thailand by Night. Restaurants, Bars, Shopping & Street Food


This is sunset at Ao Nang Beach. There’s certainly worse places in the world to be. Once the sun goes down Ao Nang really
comes alive. It’s quite a pretty town by night and there’s lots to do there. There’s lots of shops where you can buy everything from souvenirs to clothes shoes, sunglasses, all sorts of toys and knick-knacks. And lots of different food The main street’s a great place to take in the sights, go for a walk, do some shopping, or maybe grab a bite to eat. After that maybe have a drink and check out a band. There’s lots of bars with live music and at the party hub Center Point night clubs where you can party the night away. There’s one main road along the beach in Ao Nang where most of the action is and there’s a number of little lanes and streets running off of that. Along the main road you’ll find shopping, beachwear, ocean packs, taylors, souvenirs. Thai woodwork, You may even find that missing piece to complete your phallus collection. There’s also money exchange, pharmacies and ATMs. Laundry service. Or you can get a pic of your child with a ladyboy, or get a selfie at Ao Nang’s giant sailfish statue. Whatever you’re looking for there’s a good chance you’ll find it on the main street of Ao Nang. You’ll find lots of different styles of restaurants, and food from all around the world. And seafood is a specialty in the area. Or you can try some of the street food in Ao Nang. There’s a couple of areas with lots of different street food vendors. You’ll find yummy stick food, barbecued fish and chicken, barbecued corn, barbecued fish, tempura prawns, barbecued prawns and calamari, clams and cockles, crabs, or get a coconut drink. You can pick the piece that you want. There’s also a huge range of food cooked to order. You can grab a table and eat there. Or you can try one of Thailand’s famous rotis. Or maybe a couple of them. This is a banana roti being cooked. These are really tasty, if you do come to Thailand you’ve got to try one of these! Once it’s cooked they slice it into pieces. Top it with the sauce of your choice. Add a skewer and it’s good to go. These fried potato spirals on the left are yummy as well! There’s also lots of Thai fruit. And a huge selection of other Thai street food. The only problem you’re likely to face is deciding what to eat. This is another street food area not far past McDonalds. Again lots of different choices. Barbecued chicken and fish. Or if street food’s not your thing there’s always the restaurants. There are hundreds of restaurants in Ao Nang, with every type of food you could imagine. Indian, Italian, Thai, pizza, pasta, steak, even Russian food. Spaghetti, and of course the seafood. Every type of seafood you can imagine. There’s also roadside restaurants if you’re on a budget. This was my choice of the night, the Massaman Restaurant. My wife and I had a noodle soup panang curry, pumpkin and pork curry, and fried rice with prawns. After dinner you can take a stroll along the main street. Get your nails done. Get a massage. Let fish nibble on your feet. Or book a tour for the following day.
There’s lots of choices for activities in Ao Nang and in the surrounding areas. This is one of my favourite places, Hong Island. You’ll find lots of shops selling tours, at really good prices. Or if you want more shopping there’s a street market up the road opposite the mosque, with souvenirs, cheap clothes, And all sorts of other items. Wall hangings, dreamcatchers, diecast toys. Or if shopping’s not your thing you can grab a drink and chill out at one of the bars. Boogie Bar’s got some great bands and live music every night. There’s dozens of bars and many of them with live music. You can chill out with a game of pool. Or chat to the ladies. There’s certainly no shortage of bars in Ao Nang. You can grab a drink from a hole-in-the-wall bar and take it to go. Or there’s always Center Point, just behind Burger King There’s about 20 bars in Center Point, over three levels catering for all tastes. You’ll also find entertainment on the plaza. You can get a tattoo done between drinks, or visit upstairs and do some karaoke, or to dance the night away. Center Point’s also the home of Ao Nang’s Blue Dragon Cabaret Show. Or for something a little different you can head up the road to RCA, where you’ll find lots of ladies to talk to and about 20 bars down a little lane way, most of them with pool tables. No matter what time of the day or night it is you’ll always find food in Ao Nang. You’ll find street food vendors on the road cooking well into the wee hours of the night. Or for a taste of home there’s Burger King and McDonalds that are open 24 hours and there are 7-11s everywhere with lots of food and drink choices. There’s also some late night restaurants in Center Point and a little bit further out of Ao Nang, near the Tesco Lotus, there’s some late night restaurants serving Thai food. It’s easy to get around, you’ll find taxis and tuk-tuks well into the late night hours. You’ll find them at night waiting outside Center Point. You’ll find quite a few a few bars open late
where you can party the night away. So that’s a quick look at Ao Nang at night, I think you’ll find something for everyone Check out my channel for lots more Ao Nang and Krabi videos and don’t forget to subscribe, there’ll be more videos coming soon. Thanks for watching! I’ll see you later.

  1. Another great video. Thank-you Darrenb3. I'm in Canada, its snowing, my truck has broke down and I'm eating peanut butter sandwich with no milk! Life is good! Thank-you for your prayers. All the best.

  2. if I'm ever able, I would see this place for sure, but only for maybe a night. I prefer the less touristy spots you have shown. (maybe if I was younger?, lol) curious as to the amount of std's there, is it comparable to other worlds regions? awkward question, so no worries if you don't care to respond. you are the very best on the web, and I'm not just glad handing!

  3. Are there any places you can recommend with children in Krabi? We will be going July 2016, this will be the first time with my 2 kids and friends. This years I was on Phiphi, Phuket and Hua hin to visit some family but without kids. 😀

  4. Nice buzzy place at night but quite safe although initially in your face with girls and street vendors everywhere.  Super place for eating whatever takes your fancy. Quiet bars and noisy bars. Good deals on t-shirts and other clothing but you must bargain and shop around. My wife and I are in our late 60's and conservative but we thoroughly enjoyed it.

  5. Just out of curiosity, did you see many thai ladies traveling alone? I'm not sure how often this happens. I thought it might be pretty rare. What do you think?

  6. So laid back…maybe I'm missing it but I don't get that 'gotta keep up with the Joneses' vibe in Thailand lol…the fashion, the yard landscaping, the hairstyle YIKES! Wouldn't miss that Americana crap. Everyone just looks comfy, casual. I will never be able to travel there but I can feel the vibe sitting on my couch 😉 Thank you!!!!!

  7. I stated a lanna beach hotel.right next to the "reggae" bar..heard every song in detail..ha ha  and don't forget the walk  just 10 or15 minutes to adaman sea  ,take a long tail boat out, its kinda rough and intense tourist stuff so know your rates and find out before about prices. very noisey there ,scooters non stop, but if that's cool its fun.ocean was  super warm.

  8. well documented video,can you tell me if budget accommodation is plentiful in the high season end of Jan early Feb I would I need to book beforehand?

  9. hi darren first of all thank for being in our daily life . i have been watching ur vids just early this year . im going to krabi(aonang) in this october . just need a liltle help tho how the weather there in sept/oct ist good or bad ? ur help would mean everything to me . thanks again … keep it up .. make our life enjoyable .. regard fan from malaysian ..

  10. Hello Darren I'm going to krabi at the end of the month . Is there lots to see and do. What's the best way to get about. As I've heard horror stories about traveling by tuk tuks

  11. Hi Darren- your videos are my favourite to watch on Ao Nang- I'll be there in April with my partner- your vids provide SO MUCH inspiration and info- thank you!!! I especially love the restaurant ones where you show the menus. Would love to get in touch with a few questions about dining options, would I please be able to email you? Cheers!

  12. hi darren:)what about trasport from phuket to krabi!
    the cheapest way! i find this island so interesting to visit

  13. I love this video. I was in Krabi two years back.
    stayed at a wonderful place called Aaonang Village Resort
    I think we took the seven point day trip.
    I strongly recommend you to go Krabi I shall visit again. and stay there longer.

  14. I found centerpoint very underwhelming.  There were one or two side street areas with out door bars that were fun

  15. great guide thanks. Would you say ao nang has more of a bustling nightlife than Krabi town? Ive heard Krabi can be a little quiet

  16. my favourite place in Thailand, only problem with it much like my other favoured place Hua hin, is it is so small everybody knows you within a day or two… you can't get lost the way you can in bigger places.

  17. Great guide. I just got back from Ao Nang yesterday, this shows it very well.
    I was there at the end of season, so it was quieter and some of the bars and vendors had shut down, but it's still well worth a visit and I'm already planning a return to do all the things that I didn't mange to do this time around.

  18. I absolutely loved ao nang. Got pretty comfortable there. Spent Xmas there kayaking the mangroves and enjoying krabi market. What a lovely time and place.

  19. Hi Darren Aorn and Ananda….. thought I'd watch again for a quick fix or refresher 😁
    Been a few months since I last watch this. Marvelously potrayed. Thanks second time around for great entertainment and valued information….have a lovely day and weekend mukker…🥀🍺🤗

  20. I stayed at Klong Muang Beach just north of Ao Nang. Met beautiful and so friendly swedish girls there. The thais started setting up the usual outdoor bars in the area that was relatively undeveloped. Too bad. You would think they could come up with a different consept there. This is a few years back. Anyone been there lately, and know how it is there now?
