If you are dreaming of idyllic tropical beaches, crystal clear blue seas, soaring cliffs, and lazy days spent island-hopping, then those dreams will come true in Krabi. Located on Thailand’s Andaman Coast, this stunning province boasts arguably the country’s most scenic seascapes and dozens of deserted islands just waiting to be explored, each one with its own set of hidden gems.
Most visitors come here simply to spend their days lazing on the beach and their evenings relaxing in one of the many seafront bars and restaurants. You could spend hours exploring the gift shops where you can find the usual trinkets for sale, or wandering the streets admiring the scenery. But Krabi also has plenty to lure the more active traveler. Kayaking, snorkeling, diving, hiking, birdwatching and some of Southeast Asia’s best rock climbing are among some of the most popular adventure activities here. The area also boasts spectacular scenery, including huge limestone karsts, mangrove forests, caves, waterfalls, and coral reefs, as well as some gorgeous islands just waiting to be discovered, such as Koh Phi Phi and Koh Lanta. Throw a few beautiful Buddhist wats in there for a sprinkle of culture and history within Krabi town itself, and you’ve got a perfect mix. In Krabi, there is enough to see and do to keep you busy, but you can also take full advantage of all the activities while still having enough time to pamper yourself on the beach for a few days, so you will get the best of both worlds!
Whether you choose to stay in lively Ao Nang or secluded Railay, there is a vast selection of resorts to suit all budgets. This is truly one of the world’s greatest beach paradise destinations and is accessible for everyone, no matter your style of travel or your budget.
