Krabi is a perfect destination for those who love beaches and fun outdoor activities – a haven for nature lovers and those looking to get away from it all. Railay Beach is a beautiful and popular place to visit. Set on a small peninsula between Krabi Town and Ao Nang, it is only accessible by boat. It is especially worth a visit if you are interested in rock climbing. Take to the water in a canoe and discover some of the 200 tiny islands to be found off the shore of this spectacular coastline. There are hiking trails to take you high into the hills where the vistas are stunning. Nightlife here is low key and relaxed, reflecting the easy-going southern beach culture, although some bars will put on fire shows or live music in the peak season.

Lesley, Managing Director

“Koh Lanta is easily accessed from Krabi - it's worth the journey for a few days to feel like a castaway.”

“If you don't mind climbing a few stairs, then visit the Tiger Temple (no tigers present) but go in the morning or so temperatures are lower. It's hard work getting to the top - but the views are all the reward you will need. Oh, and remember to take drinking water with you and make sure your shoulders are covered as it is a temple.”

John

Jas, Destination Specialist

“Krabi is great for families with older children – there are so many activities to keep teenagers entertained here – from zip wiring to canoeing, and rock climbing to snorkelling.”
