Unmissable sights in Krabi

Situated along the beautiful south coast of Thailand, Krabi is the go-to destination for picturesque white-sand beaches, impressive natural scenery, dense jungle and rainforests, stunning karst landscapes, and more than 200 stunning islands that are awaiting your discovery. Whether you're a beach lover or an outdoor thrill-seeker, you’ll find yourself lost in an assortment of amazing things to do and tourist places in Krabi to visit. If you are up for an adventure, check out the top 10 interesting places in Krabi you can include in your itinerary!

Phi Phi Islands

Phi Phi Islands (Koh Phi Phi) is a famous place in Krabi known for its exuberant nightlife and stunning natural scenery typically featured in movies. Accessible via speedboat or long-tail boat, it is home to a group of gorgeous islands located between the Straits of Malacca and Phuket. It is considered a tropical paradise for beach party-goers and adventure seekers as it offers a plethora of outdoor and water sports activities like kayaking, nature trekking, rock climbing, scuba diving, and snorkeling.

Railay Beach

Railay Beach is a must-visit during your Krabi 2 days itinerary as it offers not only an exciting adventure, but also a relaxing getaway! This peninsula, accessible only by a long-tail boat, stretches between Ao Nang and Krabi boasts a stunning natural landscape. It is surrounded by rugged limestone cliffs perfect for rock-climbing, along with alluring white-sand beaches and clear waters where you can try kayaking and snorkeling. A trip to the secret lagoons and watery caves also offer you an exploration of its hidden beauty.

Ko Lanta

Ko Lanta (Koh Lanta) is a charming island for tourists who prefer to have a calmer and more laidback holiday ambiance. Thanks to its remote location in the southernmost part of Krabi, the island offers more opportunities to immerse in the local scene and explore the unspoiled nature compared to its neighboring beaches. Cool beach bars await, where backpackers can watch the golden sunset and enjoy small parties, as well as amazing Thai restaurants that offer an authentic dining experience. You can also try scuba diving and get to bask in the magnificent coral reefs and abundant aquatic life of Ko Lanta.

Koh Lanta Old Town

If you want to have a quick escape from all the beach trips, heading over to the Koh Lanta Old Town is what you need! Located on the east coast of Koh Lanta Yai, this historic place gives every tourist a glimpse of Thailand’s culture. As you roam around the town, you’ll spot old wooden row houses on stilts, a small fishing village, boutique stores, and local shops that sell handmade goods and crafts. After a fun-filled stroll, don’t worry about getting hungry since there are cafes, bars, and waterfront restaurants with overlooking views of the lovely bay as well.

Tiger Cave Temple

Standing tall at 278 meters above the grounds of the Mueang Krabi District, Tiger Cave Temple (Wat Tham Sua) is one of the many historical sites in Thailand. To see the famous ‘Buddha’s footprint’ on top, one must take a 1,237-step climb with cheeky monkeys tagging along during the hike. Reaching the summit would also mean getting panoramic 360-degree views of the Andaman Sea, limestone cliffs, dense jungle forests, and marvelous natural sights surrounding the island. Make sure to spend some time touring the limestone caves and other natural attractions at the foot of the temple complex before heading to the top for a complete experience!

Ao Nang Beach

Located just 20 minutes away from Krabi Town, Ao Nang beach provides plenty of things to do for tourists all day. You can rent a long-tail boat to visit the nearby islands or watch the calming sunset over a striking natural landscape as you enjoy an authentic Thai massage experience. Exuding an easygoing vibe, the cool restaurants and bars offer a variety of cocktails and impressive dining options that bring out the nightlife scene and the town’s vibrant atmosphere during the evening.

Ko Poda

Ko Poda (Koh Poda) is a tropical paradise off the coast of Krabi, enclosed by soft white sand and turquoise waters. It is just 25 minutes from Ao Nang via a speedboat or long-tail boat. You can discover the island gems by simply walking around the beach, but make sure not to miss out on snorkeling as it is a popular activity for tourists. The stunning view of the coral reefs and hundreds of small colorful fishes roaming around the shallow bluish-green waters is definitely a must-see! The sunset view over the limestone formations is also a lovely sight to admire after a day of walking and relaxation.

Ko Ngai

Considered a romantic getaway destination and a family-friendly relaxation spot in Krabi, Ko Ngai (Koh Hai) is another paradise located within the Trang Archipelago. It is a small island perfect for travelers, especially couples, who want to take pleasure in the peaceful ambiance of the long white beach, lined with palm trees and surrounded by the tropical forest and rocky shores. If you want to see the island's coral reefs, the resorts offer snorkeling equipment rentals.

Emerald Pool

Emerald Pool (Sra Morakot) is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Krabi, thanks to its exotic beauty hidden inside the dense tropical rainforest at Khao Phra Bang Khram Nature Reserve. The natural pool boasts its sparkling fresh green water that turns into blue-green or turquoise as the temperature changes. Despite the large crowd, one cannot resist taking a dip at the captivating crystal clear hot spring surrounded by limestone hills.

Maya Bay

Renowned for its appearance in the movie The Beach by Leonardo DiCaprio, Maya Bay has become the main tourist attraction in Koh Phi Phi. Surrounded by tall cliffs, this stunning bay’s natural beauty features an abundant flora and fauna and crystal clear beaches with velvety soft white sand, colorful corals, large underwater boulders, and alluring fishes excellent for snorkeling and diving.

There is a car to pick up at the school. Get either Ao Nang, Krabi town The driver came on time very much. But I appreciate that there is no fixed call before the trip (like other tours), making customers less confident in the service. Got a 4-engine speedboat ride, very fast + spacious, can accommodate 70 people, good service guides, unlimited photos, diving, take Gopro down to take pictures of Nemo fish as well, very impressive. Do not deduct points at all. 😉😊😉😊😉😊😉😊😉😊😉😊😉😊😉😊😉😊😉

Friendly guide The story of the area where kayaking is told along the way. Please take pictures while we are kayaking. The view of the Grand Canyon is beautiful and you should see it with your own eyes. It is an experience to visit Krabi beyond the island. P.S. If you want to confirm the pick up time, you can contact Klook to check and confirm the time with the tour.

The boat is clean, beautiful, desserts, delicious snacks, there are a variety of Thai desserts and fruits, Pad Thai is delicious. Good service staff, very cute, everyone. Always smiling to help you take pictures. Next opportunity, if I go to Krabi, I will go on this trip again *** Package details web page does not match the truth. The duration of the tour, the web page says 5 hours, but in fact it only takes about 3.5 hours. (Board the boat 15:00, return to the pier at 18:30)
