Precautions for a Farang

Recommended Posts

I was going to say, I walked all over Krabi Town last week, fairly late at night. I had my laundry done by a service, and she put someone's Hugo Boss shorts in with my finished laundry. When I corrected the laundry lady, she scolded me.

 

That was the most danger I felt while there.

OP, you're getting quite a mixed bag of responses here. I spent a couple weeks in Ao Nang / Krabi 4 years ago with a former gf where she works in an upscale hotel. The reason that she works there, a hundred Km from her home in Surat Thani, is because of the safety of this family-oriented locale (Ao Nang). We still talk regularly, nothing about the area has changed.

Go, enjoy your quiet stay.

Ao Nang is not Krabi.

"What precautions should a foreigner take when visiting Krabi Town, Ao Nang beach and nearby islands?"

 

Above is an excerpt from the OP question. Note that he refers to both. 

I am quite aware, thank you, that they are distinctly separate places. However, being in such close proximity, the area is frequently referred to as Ao Nang, Krabi or in some fashion that indicates their close proximity.

 

As stated in my original response, I have spent considerable time in the area and travelled many times between the two places, on several occasions, hence my avatar.

 

Having a boring day are we?

But, even if considering the proximity, the areas are very different.

Boring day?  No, more like a 'bad hair day' :cowboy:

Whatever. You can have the last word. I really don't care about your geographical knitpicking.

Of all the places in Thailand to visit, Krabi is not even in the top 20. Avoid.
