Krabi Nightlife Guide
The bar scene in Krabi is fairly relaxed, reflecting the easy-going southern beach culture. Nicely lit, bamboo beach bars are the most common place to hang out in, with plenty of cushions, pavilions and even hammocks to ensure you won't leave again in a hurry. A few tunes, the sound of the waves and a view of the stars is all you have in the way of entertainment; although some Krabi bars will put on fireshows or live music in the peak season.

Even in Krabi town, most of the bars are relaxed, open-air cafes, often with a giant screen showing the latest Thai pop videos, or English football games. Live music is also popular here, with Thai bands regularly performing covers of local and western hits.

For a more energetic and active nightlife, you need to make a trip to Phi Phi Island. If you're the kind of person who enjoys guzzling 'buckets' of local whisky and Red Bull and falling over on the dance floor, you will be in your element here. Phi Phi - where this sophisticated cocktail was invented - holds nightly parties in super-sized beach bars, as well as in clubs in the village. DJs; fireshows; magicians; Thai boxing; and ladyboy cabarets: nothing is spared in the quest to entertain the tourists.

Here, bars can stay open all night - there are no police on the island; elsewhere, most bars shut, in theory anyway, at 1am. In practice, most beach bars and other tourist nightspots are rarely forced to close - so if they have customers, they will continue to serve them.

There are no real go go bars in Krabi you will need to go to Bangkok, Phuket or Pattaya! Go-go bars, with shows and scantily-dressed dancers do not exist; female company can be found rather in Thai karaoke bars or regular bar beers.

In Krabi Town there are karaoke bars around Soi 2 and Sois 7 and 11 of Maharat Rd. Hostesses can be invited to join your table for a drink and maybe a song.

In Ao Nang, try Center Point, a small plaza of bar beers tucked behind the main beachfront. Each plays loud - and different - music and competes with each other to get the customers to sit down.

The atmosphere here can get quite lively and it's a good place to come whether you're male or female. The tourist clientele is usually quite mixed, with couples, singles and groups of friends - and both sexes are welcome. Another area in Ao Nang is known locally as 'The Soi', a short side road opposite Krabi Seaview Resort with a similar set-up of noisy bar beers - this also often stays open after hours.
