Karst peaks

Krabi is both a town and a province, but as the town, is mainly about the shopping and the restaurants, it’s the province that holds the most appeal. For here, among the towering karst pinnacles and turquoise seas, you’ll find forgotten beaches, tranquil islands, and more outdoor adventure activities than you can shake a stick at. Throw in some waterfalls, mangrove forests and hot springs, and you’ve got yourself one of the most exciting holiday destinations in Thailand.

How to get around

Longtail boats in Krabi

Take to the seas

It’s easy enough to get around Krabi Town by songthaew (an enclosed pickup truck that follows a set route, picking up passengers on the way), but as the region is mostly made up of coast and islands, you’ll most likely use boats to see the sights. Longtails are the most common, and work like water taxis, but you can also hire motorised boats with drivers, take the ferry or sign up for an island-hopping and scuba diving tour. For Railay Beach you’ll have to take a boat, or join a rock climbing excursion.
