/ Thailand rock climbing trip in jan (ao nang)
Thanks very much!
Stay in Tonsai, you can walk to almost all crags. If you stay in Ao Nang, you'd have to get a boat in to the crags each day = ballache
Staying in Ao Nang is a good option - especially if you are happy riding a moped. You can take day trips over to the Railay and Tonsai crags, plus also ride out to some of the newer crags that are close to Ao Nang. I personally thought that Chong Pli was a great spot. Also, you can access Vinland walking from Ao Nang, plus a handful of other crags with a short ride on the moped. Consider a few days on Koh Yao too - much quieter over there - possible to ride over on the scooter (you will need to lift it on to the boat) - amazing climbing, especially the Mitt.
Enjoy! I will be there from 25th Jan onwards so get in touch if you are still there at that point and we can meet and climb.
Forgot to also say that staying in Ao Nang will allow you to really explore the area's non-climbing stuff. It is a beautiful area with lots of Thai culture, which you really wont experience if you stay over in Railay or Tonsai! Ao Nang itself is pretty touristy but in a 20 min moped ride you can really see the real rural Southern Thailand. Enjoy!
