3 Hidden Gems in Krabi Worth Visiting for Curious Travelers

August 7, 2020

Summer is right around the corner, so if you’re looking to spend your free days in a tropical paradise, flying off to Krabi, Thailand, is one of the hottest destinations for the ultimate weekend getaway. 

Krabi is home to untouched, pristine beaches with white, powdery sands and coconut palms lining the coast for miles. In between the verdant, mangrove forests, limestone karsts, colorful coral reefs, and rich wildlife, the rich cultural heritage makes up the bustle in the heart of Krabi. 

Tourists and locals alike can find peace in quieter spots and adventure in the rest, making it a place for all types of vacationers. While Railay Beach is key attraction soot, the list below is for wistful tipplers looking to discover hidden gems in the island: 

Must-Visit #1: Emerald Pool and Blue Pool 

Travelers craving to dip their toes on a refreshing scenery in between island-hopping can dive into the Emerald Pool, a place of serenity where you can relax in emerald waters surrounded by a lush forest. The crashing waves and singing birds in the background create the ultimate spot for letting loose, allowing the warm waters and gentle stream to carry you off to cloud nine. 

It’s a two-hour drive from Ao Nang, making it an excellent destination to get away from the usual tourist attractions without straying too far from popular beach towns. While it’s a secret wonder, there are throngs of restaurants you can indulge in after exploring the blue and emerald waters around this quaint jungle. 

Must-Visit #2: Tiger Cave Temple 

Krabi may be known for its natural beauty, but it’s also rich in the stunning architecture and jaw-dropping temples in between. For those who are looking to experience a part of Krabi’s culture, visiting the Tiger Cave Temple displays a different side of Krabi. 

It hides a cave beneath the majestic architecture, where the paw of tigers is printed. Moving forward, Tiger Cave Temple is perched on top of a rocky landscape, where you have to go up a flight of stairs with up to 1,237 steps. 

It’s worth the steep climb as once you reach the top, it offers a breathtaking, panoramic view of Krabi where you can catch the most spectacular sunset. 

Must-Visit #3: Koh Lanta 

A destination hiding one of the most magical views on the island, Koh Lanta is a lesser-known beauty that’s worth visiting when exploring Krabi’s coastline. It brings heaven on earth as it features over 70 small islands, boasting of a long stretch of unpolluted, jaw-dropping scenery and peaceful, palm-infringed beaches for miles on-end.
