I stayed at Thai Hotel Krabi. (Address:7 Issara Rd, Paknam)

Thai Hotel Krabi is located in Krabi Town. It is only a 3-minute walk from the Night Market, Krabi Walking Street and Chao Fha Market. Air-conditioned rooms at Hotel Thai Krabi have a cable TV, minibar and en suite bathroom. Laundry service is provided. A safety deposit box is available at the reception. Thai Hotel Krabi is a 15-minute drive from Krabi Airport.

Positives:

  • Cheap
  • Air-con
  • Close by to everything in Krabi Town

Negatives:

  • Downstairs was a brothel
  • WIFI was rubbish in the bedroom and only worked downstairs
  • It didn’t have a refrigerator

Outlet Village Krabi

It is located 15 minutues away from Krabi International Airport. We planned to spend an hour walking around the Outlet village but it took us ten minutes to walk around the whole complex.

The shopping outlet offers over 100 selected leading brands such as Nike, adidas, Puma, Wacoal, Paul Frank and Lacoste going for around 20 per cent cheaper than Singapore retail prices.

I found that it was the same price, if more expensive, to the brands sold in the UK. Singapore is quite expensive it makes sense that they would buy their brands from here. 70% off brands definitely didn’t seem like a bargain to me. For instanceNike trainers were £60. Basically it was a complete waste of time.

Vogue

For visitors who would like to engage in a spot of retail therapy, there’s the Vogue Shopping Mall in the middle of the town. It’s quite small, but adequate I guess. There’s a small supermarket and a Boots pharmacy on the ground floor as well as a KFC and Dunkin’ Donuts.
