Krabi town is the main travel hub of the area with an international airport 20 minutes from the centre of town. From Krabi you can get to the beautiful beaches of Ao Nang and Klong Muang by road, either by yourself on a moped or on one of the many Saong-Tau's that run through town. There's also excellent connections on to Koh Phi Phi, Koh Lanta, and Koh Jum as well as Phuket town by ferry. The nearest train station is in Tran, which is just a 2-hour minibus ride south.

The town itself is quite pleasant and is often overlooked as a destination itself. In our opinion if is a good base to start from.

Includes: Shared bathroom, Wi-Fi, free Tea/ Coffee, terrace area, roof-garden, reading area

The roof-garden really sells this one. There's adequate bathroom facilities for those rooms that don't have en-suite. The rooms are basic but that works. Good quality mattresses, good pillows and a small table with cushions in each room. En-suite is generally about 100B more for the room. What more can you want? Patrick told us that in the next few months they'll be upgrading their garden area to make it even more appealing for that sun-set beer!

Cha Guesthouse
Address: 15-25 Fah Road
Prices from: Shared facilities 250B, Fan 450B, AC 650B
Tel: Email: Web:
With a chilled out area downstairs it's not a bad choice. The rooms do have a feel of a log-cabin though. Most come with a small balcony and the rooms are good and clean.

    Over 1,000 downloads of "A travellers Guide to Myanmar"

    We've had over 27,000 hits in just 7 months! For some, that's nothing, for the charities we support, approx. 2% of our visitors visit on.Which means all of our hard work is worth it. 

    Looks like we'll be publishing an update to "A Travellers Guide to Myanmar" in September ready for the new season. And already we have Peter and Anne from Balmain, Sydney Australia on board to give us updates for their pending trip in October.

    So we have "
    Fish out of Water" and "Powered by Noodles" and now "Cool for Cats" set to update us in Myanmar. Can you get any more up-to-date?

Definition of Charity: 
"Generosity and helpfulness especially toward the needy and suffering"

This is all about giving something back to the people of the countries that we've visited, to thank them for the wonderful experiences that we've had. There are no charges for receiving information on this site, because this is about sharing the latest information and not making money. You'll also note, there are no pop-ups or sponsored links to businesses. So, please take the time to look at some of the charities that we've highlighted on our charities page, and if you want to "pay" for the information you've received, then look into some of these worthy causes. Otherwise we'd gladly accept any support to help keep this site alive.
