Is the shopping decent in Krabi/Ao Nang or should we drive to Phuket
It depends on the definition of decent I guess. You will see plenty of cheap beach type of clothes.
It's subject to what you want to buy. Ao Nang has many tailors for business suits and shirts. But don't go to those touting in front of their shops. They are the worst ! There is an Outlet shop for branded sporting goods (no fakes). The road through Ao Nang is loaded with T-shirt shops, but all branded items are fakes. Here you have to haggle. Casual ware is available at the Tesco Lotus in the direction to the airport or Big C or Vogue in Krabi town.
