Topic: Where to stay for one night only?

A friend and I will be stopping over in Krabi arriving on a Friday early evening and flying on to Koh Samui on the Saturday lunchtime.  We have the option of being dropped off at Klong Jilard pier or Ao Nang pier.  Given that we are there for such a short time, which area are we better of visiting and which is easier to get to the airport from?

I have been recommended @Krabi Pura for Krabi town.  Is this the best bet for our short stay?

thanks

Re: Where to stay for one night only?

I'd stick with Krabi Town for such a short stay - it's evening so you won't be able to see much of the scenery anyway. The journey to the airport is shorter from here as well. As for things to do, there is the night market, or lots of very good Thai restaurants for dinner, as well as bars etc. if you want a late night.
Many guesthouses and hotels in the town centre, much cheaper than Ao Nang. Krabi Pura is a newer one overlooking the river, near the night market.
