Krabi Town nightlife’s scene features a few interesting venues at which punters can enjoy a drink, listen to live music or watch sport events on TV in a laid-back atmosphere. To ensure visitors get a true impression, it has to be said that there is not an energetic or crazy ambience such as those found in Patong Beach (Phuket) or Ao Nang (the most popular resort town in Krabi, located 15km southwest of Krabi Town). Nightlife in Krabi Town has a strong genuine local touch (which is a quality).
Our Top 5 Krabi Town Nightlife list features bars at which visitors can unwind in a relaxed climate and unpretentious settings, as well as meet fellow travellers with whose they could share their experiences about travelling in Thailand.
