About Travel to Krabi


The point of arrival for speed boat services from Koh Yao Yai to Krabi, Nopparat Thara Pier, is located just over 3 km by road from Ao Nang Beach. Ao Nang is the most popular tourist destination in mainland Krabi, partly because of its easy accesibility from Krabi International Airport facilitating package holiday makers, but also because of its long beach and numerous hotels, bars and restaurants. Ao Nang is a good choice for families seeking the same type and level of amenities available in a European resort destination. Other popular places to stay include Railay, which is a peninsular accessible by local boats from Ao Nang Beach, and Krabi Town, which has no beach but lots of cultural attractions for visitors to enjoy.

Mainland Krabi is largely flat, with good roads and plenty of public transport options, so whether you stay in Ao Nang or elsewhere (except Railay which is more isolated) you can easily visit the major points of interest in the area on a day trip. One of the major local tourist attractions is the Tiger Cave Temple (Wat Tham Suea) which is located about 8 km by road to the north of Krabi Town. The Tiger Cave Temple has a popular hill top shrine with panoramic views of the surrounding area and several caves, many of which contain shrines.

Krabi Town itself is alo worth visiting. The town has several good night markets, including a lively weekend tourist market and a riverside food market. Also, in the centre of the town is a long riverside park with several boat piers and dozens of scultpures. This riverside park is a popular gathering point at sunset where locals and visitors come to enjoy riverside walks and views across to the dense mangrove forests on the other side of the river.
