Lonely Planet review

About 9km east of Ao Nang at the western end of Ao Nam Mao is the Shell Cemetery , also known as Gastropod Fossil or Su-San Hoi. Here you can see giant slabs formed from millions of tiny 75-million-year-old fossil shells. There's a small visitors centre , with geological displays and various stalls selling snacks. Sŏrng·tăa·ou from Ao Nang cost 30B.
