With pearly white-sand beaches, dramatic limestone cliffs and wild jungle, Krabi is a strong contender for Thailand’s most picturesque province. If you’re looking for a seaside holiday with added adventure, this region has it all – there’s culture and cuisine on the mainland and idyllic laid-back islands just a short boat ride away.
Located on Thailand’s southern coastline, Krabi has outstanding natural beauty every way you turn. Even the bustling central port town, which mainly acts as a transport hub, is surrounded by mangroves and striking limestone karsts. It’s from here that many start their journey to the eye-wateringly beautiful islands of the Andaman Sea.
Koh Phi Phi and Koh Lanta are the main inhabited islands, but there are many more to explore. Longtail boats will whisk you between the pristine bays of Koh Poda and Koh Tub – passing craggy caves along the way – to find the best snorkelling spots. Later, they return in time for you to enjoy pink sunsets and late-night parties.
The mainland has plenty to offer, too. Not just soft sandy beaches – of which it has several more – but temples hidden high in the jungle and lively local culture. Explore Krabi Town’s mangrove swamps by kayak, swim in a waterfall at Khao Phanom Bencha National Park or go rock climbing by Railay beach.
Thailand is also well known for its exceptional cuisine – in Krabi, it’s all about the hot curries and fresh seafood. Night markets are a highlight for foodies, with stalls cooking all manner of aromatic dishes from grilled satay to steamed crab. You’ll also find a range of small local restaurants and sophisticated in-resort dining serving up remarkably cheap and tasty dishes.
