July 24, 2020

If you’re planning to visit southern Thailand but have yet to decide the perfect place to enjoy a tropical vacation, you might want to give Krabi a chance.

It may not be as popular as Phuket or Bangkok, but Krabi is among the region’s most wellknown tourist destinations thanks to its mangrove forests, limestone cliffs, and most importantly, its large number of offshore islands. You will never run out of sights to see or activities to do in this town.

To encourage you to visit this charming town, allow us to share with you some exciting destinations that await you at Krabi.

1. Koh Phi Phi

Thailand’s popular island group, Phi Phi Islands, is located in Krabi Province. It’s also famous for being the setting of Leonardo DiCaprio’s movie, The Beach. Aside from giving you a lovely view of the Maya Bay, Koh Phi Phi is a great place for beach parties and breezy summer nights with your friends at the many incredible bars and restaurants lining the shore. You can also find nature treks and thrilling diving adventures on this island paradise!

2. Koh Lanta

If you’re into a more serene experience, Koh Lanta can be your best bet. It is one of Thailand’s most beautiful islands and is loved by tourists who are looking for a relaxing vacation because of its remote location and pristine and coral-fringed beaches. It is also not too crowded but has enough facilities for a comfortable stay, perfect for those who want to enjoy some peace and quiet by the beach.

3. Wat Tham Seua

Another interesting destination in Krabi is the Wat Tham Seua, or the Tiger Cave Temple. This is a sacred site with tall Buddha statues and the infamous tiger paw prints in the cave, but what makes it more special is that it sits at the top of a flight of over a thousand steps. After a gruelling climb, you will surely be rewarded with a breathtaking view of not only the several beautiful statues onsite but also the karst landscape below.

4. Ao Nang

Of course, a trip to Thailand will not be complete without a taste of the country’s best water adventures. The good thing is that you can also find a great resort town in Krabi Province. Ao Nang, in particular, is a popular resort town in the region that is known for its long Andaman coast beachfront. Additionally, it also gives tourists access to dive sites at the nearby islands. And if you’re looking for long-tail boat tours, you’ll be delighted to know that Ao Nang has them, and they can take you to the beaches of neighboring limestone islands!

5. Railay

Also called Rai Leh, this small but stunning peninsula is famous for its sheer limestone cliffs. If you want some adventure and are an avid fan of rock climbing, Railay in Krabi Province is the perfect place for you! There are cliffs for both beginners and advanced climbers, and aside from the experience of scaling these limestone cliffs, you’ll surely get a stunning view of the surrounding bay. If you aren’t necessarily fond of climbing, Railay has its beautiful beaches to offer to you instead.
