Krabi’s starfish haven Ao Siao gets ready for post-virus tourist influx

Thousands of starfish can be seen when the tide ebbs in Krabi’s Ao Siao beach.

 

Though this beach is not that popular among tourists compared to the Nopparat Thara Beach on mainland Krabi, Khlong Muang Beach or the island of Phi Phi, Ao Siao is getting ready to attract tourists once the Covid-19 outbreak comes to an end.

The 2-kilometre-long beach is still abundant with natural resources, especially scores of starfish which can be seen when the tide ebbs. The beach is also known for its refreshing breezes and strangely shaped sand dunes.

Ao Siao is 5km from Ao Nang Beach within the Hat Nopparat Thara-Mu Koh Phi Phi National Park.

Jet Ski and sunbed for the starfish tourists may take a lot longer though🤔

I very much doubt they’ll be seeing too many tourists after this is all done, with higher flight costs and anxiety with crowding I suspect many will be seeking vacations nearer to home.

Wishful thinking regarding tourists... all Thais lost money in this crisis, do you think they want to spend on travel? and international flights are banned for another month.

It's that rosy outlook, once again.  Tourists will falling over each other in the scrum to see the starfish in mid-June.  Seriously.  

I think they will be falling over themselves for the chocolate variety first

It is amazing how many people think this is over now. The cogs of the world have stopped. They are going to need a lot of greasing to get them going again

Which will last about a nano second once the Thais ship in thousands of tourists.

Sand dunes replaced with deck chairs, foreshore covered with jet skis, and the smell of BBQ chicken wafting on the sea breeze!

Neither could I when I walked the dogs there this morning. Ao Nam Mao beach also has an influx of starfish as usually happens when we start the rainy season. Unfortunately they are not edible or there would be a local goldrush!
