About travel to Krabi

What to Expect on the Bus Journey

The first part of the journey is on a large bus, which originates in Bangkok, from Hua Hin to Surat Thani. This part of the journey takes around 6 hours along the main north to south highway in Southern Thailand.

On arrival in Surat Thani passengers disembark the large bus and wait until 06:30 to board a minivan that travels across the country from east to west. This part of the journey takes 3 hours 30 minutes.

The final destination is a bus stop very close to the main long distance bus station in Krabi and somewhere where it’s very easy to get a shared taxi into Krabi Town, or a taxi or tuk-tuk to the destination of your choice.

Krabi Town

Mainland Krabi is not as popular a destination for tourists as the major islands of Krabi Province, Koh Phi Phi anf Koh Lanta. A lot of people travel to Krabi to take a ferry to one of these island. However, in and around Krabi Town there are some interesting attractions which you won’t find on the islands.

Krabi Town, in particular, is an attractive laid-back town with a great riverside promenade featuring a sculpture garden as well as views of hills and mangrove forest. Next to the river in the centre of town there is an excellent Night Market which is a popular place to eat, and then two further larger night markets in the town centre.

Tiger Cave Temple

One of mainland Krabi’s most famous attractions, Wat Tham Suea (Tiger Cave Temple), is located 8 km to the north of Krabi Town. Wat Tham Suea is a large temple, which is free to visit, that features some large buildings and statues, and two more unusual features that you won’t find at many other temples in a Thailand.

The first of these is a hill top shrine that you need to climb a lot of steps to reach, but offers fantastic views across the surrounding countryside. The other unique feature is a series of caves, many with shrines, within the grounds of the temple. You need to climb more stairs to reach these caves.
