For isolated beaches, prime dive spots and jagged mountains dripping with rainforest, Krabi's got it.
Nestling majestically beside the Andaman Sea, Krabi is one of Thailand’s most attractive provinces. It’s where small islands erupt from the sea and secluded bays, beaches and coves are only accessibly by colourful longtail boats.
Popular Ao Nang is the centre of Krabi’s tourist scene. A mix of beaches, bars, restaurants and tourist shops, it’s a great base for water-related activities and excursions to off-shore islands. Fifteen minutes north are Klong Muang’s powdery sands where the well-established village has a few shops and simple restaurants.
Accessible only by boat, Phra Nang and Railay are Krabi’s star offerings. Sparkling waters and pretty beaches are backed by proper jungle and monkeys frolic as rock-climbers of all abilities scale the limestone crags. For those fascinated by life below the waves, Krabi has over 30 dive sites and countless snorkelling spots with flourishing coral reefs.
In Krabi Town, while away an hour or two in a cosy cafe, or follow the riverside walkway to the fishing port, where restaurants specialise in seafood.
