We are Patricia and Nui and we have been operating
the Laughing Gecko bungalows in Ao Nang, Krabi, Thailand for
over 10 years. Tricia is a native of Canada who moved to Thailand
nearly 20 years ago where she met Nui and fell in love.
We spent their first 12 years together on the
Island of Koh Yao Noi. Tiring of island life, we decided to
move back to mainland Krabi and established the Laughing Gecko
Our aim is to bring our long experience of traditional
Thai living to you right here in Ao Nang and to provide an
affordable eco-friendly option for travellers of all ages.
We invite you to come and join us and our family
during your stay in Thailand, and will do our best to introduce
to all the best parts of Southern Thai lifestyle, food and
the spectacular Krabi region.
