General Information about Krabi

Krabi is the gateway to the islands of Koh Lanta and Koh Phi Phi or Railay but the city and its area have much to offer. Going to Krabi without taking time to take a long tail tour on the river among mangroves and limestone mountains or without visiting the cave temples is a great pity. have dinner at the night market near the pier of Tha Khong Ka. The food is tasty and very cheap. Here you are really in typical Thailand atmosphere. Budget accommodation there are numerous (especially near the pier).
And for those who love relaxing on the beach, go to Ao Nang, 16 km away. There is a beautiful beach with amazing sunsets. The accommodation prices are higher.

Accommodations in Krabi

When we speak of Krabi, it is important to distinguish the town itself where small accommodation and very cheap guesthouses offering dorm beds are very numerous near Chao Fah Pier and Ao Nang beach about twenty kilometers from the town. In general, travelers go sleep at Ao Nang beach and its beautiful sunsets. Rooms rates are significantly higher than in Krabi Town and it is very difficult to find a room for less than 1000 baht but there are some cheaper options. Book in advance as they rarely have rooms available in high season.

How to get around in Krabi ?

in Krabi, no taximeter, just motorcycle taxis and songtahews used for the local buses lines.

Must-visits in Krabi

Wat Tham Seua (Tiger Cave Temple) Krabi

Wat Tham Seua (Tiger Cave Temple)

วัดถ้ําเสือ
My opinion :
Called Wat Tham Seua in Thai, it is the most interesting temple to visit in Krabi. It owes its name to one of its many caves (the tiger cave) and offers a magnificent view over Krabi province from a sanctuary on the top of a mountain. The climb is rough (1260 steps) but the view definitely worths it! This is one of the must visits in Krabi.
Emerald Pool Krabi

Emerald Pool

สระมรกต
My opinion :
This magnificent green-emerald water swimming pool attracts more and more people. Open to the bath, its crystal clear water makes it a pleasant place to bathe. The Emerald Pool is about fifty kilometers from Krabi or Ao Nang.
Tab Kak Hang Nak Nature Trail Krabi

Tab Kak Hang Nak Nature Trail

เขาหงอนนาค
My opinion :
This trail in the mountains about forty kilometers from Krabi offers one of the most beautiful panoramas in Thailand. The 3.7 kilometers long climb is quite physical but the view at the summit is just amazing !
