Krabi motorbike rental is the best way to explore Krabi and there are many bikes available for rent in Ao Nang beach.
You can explore popular tourist spots like Wat Tham Sueu or Tiger Cave temple.
The roads are in good condition and not much traffic except in Krabi town.
I have rented a motorcycle for three days and it is easy to ride as there is no need for gear change. Highly recommended for those with motorbike experience.
A full tank cost about 100 Baht.
Some motorbike rental need you to pay a deposit to insure against the theft of their motorcycles.
Word of advice
Please do not be like us, Chantal and I was stuck with a empty tank and I had to push the motorbike! Fortunately we found a small refueling stop.
Please wear a safety motorcycle helmet when you are riding.
