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.


What you’ll love most about Krabi

  • Hire a boat or kayak and explore the calm waters that surround one of the 200 or so islands that can be found off Krabi’s coastline
  • There are temples to explore, some high up in the hills offering incredible views. Wat Tham Sua is one such cave temple to discover
  • The rainforests of Krabi are worth hiking. Cut into the rock is a series of volcanic chambers that form the Krabi Hot Springs
