And the other reason is that not everyone has his own vehicle – you will need one in order to get up there, it’s too far to walk and there are no motorbike taxis late at night.
You can drive to that area in less than 10 minutes, and if you walk it will take you close to an hour.
And then I explain the better nightlife areas on Maharaj Road, as always with pictures, videos and map locations.
The tourist nightlife in Krabi Town is found in riverside, or to be more precise: in and around Soi Chao Fah, Thanon Isarah and Thanon Utarakit.
The other two night clubs are Number One, a typical night club with daily live music which is located right across opposite of Godang 8, and Khwuan Fang (ควันฟาง), which is comparable to Tawan Daeng (the hugely popular Isaan type of music hall) and has Phleng Phuea Chiwit (เพลงเพื่อชีวิต) – a type of Thai folk music with protest topics that focuses on the hardship of the working class.
Like you can see on my map below (as well as on my pictures) there is clearly no shortage of massage salons in Krabi Town.
And there’s also a soapy massage parlor with fishbowl (if you’re into that – I’m sure you are).
Let’s take a look at the different places to meet girls in Krabi Town – I will first talk about the riverside area, because this is where all the tourists stay.
Most of these places don’t even offer karaoke and microphones, but the way it works is that you pick one of the girls and she will sit and drink with you.
Some bars don’t even do that – you would pay the manager right away to take one of the girls to your hotel (like the upper left picture is such a place).
What makes it special though is that it has lot and lots of young and very attractive Krabi girls employed.
