Krabi in South Thailand is on the mainland of Thailand on the west coast. The province is heavily characterized by limestone cliffs, mangrove forests and hundreds of offshore islands and make a day on the water a stunning viewing adventure. Famous islands include Phi Phi Island and Railay Beach, accessible only per boat. The first island is a favourite snorkelling spot while Relay Island is prominent under rock climbers.
Compare The Southern Thailand province with Chiang Rai in the north. Still, instead of mountains, you will find yourself surrounded by stunning scenery, fantastic white-sand beaches and an incredible coastline.
The province is a backdrop for thousands of islands, including Ao Nang and Phi Phi Island as well as Railay and Koh Lanta. Lesser-known stunning areas are Ao Luk and Ao Nam Mao, to name a few.
Less crowded than Phuket, the city is only a 4 hours drive from Phuket and in little more than one hour from Bangkok. Krabi offers hospitality for every traveller. Whether you are planning to bath in a luxury resort or planning on a budget, it provides the perfect vacation.
Nightlife is less prominent than in Phuket. Look for islands, beaches and activities to complete your Thailand holiday instead.
