Thanks to its prime location, fabulous topography and wide range of beach sports and activities, Ao Nang has become one of the most prominent beach destinations in Thailand. However, the problem that Ao Nang facing now is outnumbered tourists in the high season and the sea pollution because of sewage that carried directly into the sea.

Anyway, Ao Nang, together with Chiang Mai, is one of Thailand’s two best paradises for extreme adventure sports.
