Ao Nang Beach Guide
Klong Muang Beach – A get away beach. Klong Muang prices are in the exclusive range so book with an agent and get direct transport to your resort. Klong Muang resorts are spread apart and difficult to access on foot. Ao Nang beach is very developed and comfortable – hence self indulgence is encouraged there! Lots to do in the immediate area – if you are here just a short time we recommend it since any type of day tour is possible from Klong Muang and you avoid all the business of Ao Nang. There are around 83 small islands of various size and shapes in the bay off this beach – so have your cameras ready.
Accommodations offered :: Deluxe and Luxury Spa Resorts (Exclusive Resorts)
Ideal for :: Big spenders who like exclusive nature resorts.
