After 7 years I decided to go back to the picturesque town of Ao Nang in the Krabi province in Thailand. I remembered the lively streets, the Krabi beaches, the lovely boulevard and the amazing food culture and was eager to go back. On top of that finding a place to stay ended in 5-night collaboration with the Alisea Boutique Hotel and the Ao Nang Cliff Beach Resort.


The exhausting trip from Koh Phangan to Ao Nang took about 8 hours but I arrived safely. Normally I always travel with Lompraya, but this time I chose Songserm, simply because they only asked 850 THB ($24) where Lompraya was asking 1,350 THB ($38). The service was just as good, so next time I will take the cheaper option again. Spending money wisely is an art and if you want some serious budget travel tips for long term travel check out my travel blog about it. In total I have been traveling in Thailand for more than 12 months and gathered all my Thailand travel tips in an article plus some island hopping routes for Thailand.

Check in Alisea Boutique Hotel Ao Nang

Due to a misunderstanding the check-in was not pretty smooth and I waited for more than one hour for my pick up. Things like this happen when you are travelling in Thailand and as a long-term traveller I am used to worse things on the road believe me. The amazingly friendly staff apologized about a 20 times for the situation, but to me it was not a big deal.

As I arrived to the Alisea Boutique Hotel I was treated with a cold towel and a delicious guava juice. I never had one before, but the same day and the day after I ordered them on the streets. Damn these things are yummy, you should try them!


First thing that caught my eye was their certificate of Excellent by Tripadvisor and their 8,7 rating at Agoda. Former guest were apparently very satisfied which gave me a good feeling.
