Ao Nang (Thai: อ่าวนาง, pronounced [ʔàːw nāːŋ]) is a resort town and one of the ten subdistricts (tambon) of Mueang Krabi District, Krabi, Thailand.


Ao Nang is a central point of the coastal province of Krabi, Thailand.[1] The town consists chiefly of a main street, which is dominated by restaurants, pubs, shops and other commerce aimed at tourists. The main beach is used by sunbathers to a certain extent, but there are a large number of long-tail boats which offer access to other beaches on the mainland and on nearby islands.

Environmental issues[edit]

Ao Nang has a wastewater treatment plant that is able to handle about 3,000 m3 of wastewater per day, not nearly enough, according to Ao Nang Administrative Organization (Or Bor Tor) President Pankum Kittithonkun.[2]
