I had heard that the coastline and islands in the Krabi area were beautiful and going purely on the guidebooks thought I'd like to spend a few nights at Rialay Beach. Your advice to make Au Nang Beach near Krabi our base in preference to Rialay was well given because there was so much more activity –gentle, not brash- in Au Nang and it afforded a very convenient gateway to the truly beautiful Rialay Beach and other lovely places such as Pi-Pi Island, Bamboo Island etc . The Ao Nang beach is nice; lovely at the eastern end furthest away from the town, with a good selection of little beachside cafes

Your choice of the comfortable yet modest Great Western Hotel was also ideal. It was central in Ao Nang., The swimming pool was good and its proximity to the shops and beach restaurants could not be bettered.

My son and I enjoyed a wonderful week there. All the arrangements worked perfectly. Both pick up and return to the airport some 33 kms away were painlessly achieved and your local representatives were very helpful in arranging excursions. I would unhesitatingly go there again and would recommend your choice to any of your clients who want to visit that area.
