Located on the Andaman coast of southern Thailand, Krabi consists of an abundance of beautiful islands from which some of the world’s most beautiful sunset vistas can be observed. With hot springs, a wildlife sanctuary, and the opportunity to rock-climb on the jaw-dropping limestone cliffs, Krabi offers something for everyone. Water sport fans can also explore the exotic sea creatures, coral reefs and sea caves in Krabi’s turquoise waters.

Krabi’s heartland is the tourist strip from Ao Nang to Noppharat Thara, which offers bars, restaurants, hotels, guesthouses and souvenir shops along its bustling streets. Ao Nang is also the perfect starting point for excursions to the famously photogenic Phi Phi Island, the deserted beaches of Phra Nang Cape and the hippie paradise of Railey Beach.
