Attractions in Krabi
Krabi Town itself has no beach, but is a really pleasant place with some interesting attractions in the town itself and nearby. The most famous of these is Wat Tham Suea (Tiger Cave Temple) which is 9 km by road from Krabi Town. Wat Tham Suea has a hill top shrine with fantastic views and some caves from which the temple gets its name.
Krabi Town itself has a picturesque riverside park, some great markets, including the massive Maharaj Market, and excellent places to eat, along with a wide range of good value accommodation.
For nearby beaches you can try the massively overdeveloped Ao Nang beach, 18 km from Krabi Town, or the more beautiful Railay Beach which you need to take a boat to get to.
Island hopping from Krabi
Another more popular option for travellers to Krabi is to go island hopping. From Klong Jilard Pier, near Krabi town, there are frequent direct ferry services to Koh Phi Phi. Koh Phi Phi is very beautiful but also massively overdeveloped, especially the part of the island where most people stay near Tonsai Pier.
From Koh Phi Phi you are likely to want to move on quite quickly to Koh Lanta, also easily accessible by ferry from Koh Phi Phi. Koh Lanta is a large and beautiful island with lots of good beaches with accommodation spread out along the island’s West Coast. In many respects Koh Lanta is one of Thailand’s last underdeveloped island paradises.
From Koh Lanta it is worth making the long speed boat journey even further south to Koh Lipe. The quality of the coastal seas around the tiny island of Koh Lipe is staggering. The island is often described as the ‘Maldives of Thailand’ for good reason.
