The 8 Best Things to Do in Krabi Town, Thailand

January 7, 2018 Florencio Paulino

The southern Thailand town of Krabi serves as base camp for exploring the province of the same name, a lush region of jungles, limestone cliffs and idyllic isles floating just offshore in the Andaman Sea. Buddhist shrines still used by local monks are tucked into the chambers of the town's top attraction, Tiger Cave. The riverside pier links travelers with ferries and longboats to the best scuba diving, rock climbing and white sand beaches on the coast.

Tab Kak Hang Nak Hill Nature Trail

Reviewed By Benlondon79 - London, United Kingdom

I real hidden Jem, we hired a scooter and ended up here, it’s a bit of a tough hike which I stupidly done in flip flops but hiking shoes would have been better. Take at least 2 litres of water each as it can get very hot!. Highly recommend. Free of charge too!.

Railay Beach Viewpoint

Reviewed By Dakles - Hampshire, England

Access to the viewpoint is from the footpath to Phra Ngang beach and starts with a very strenuous clamber up the cliffs. Once at the top things level off into a hike through the forest to the viewpoint. Great view to be had and great fun altogether.

Ao Thalane

Reviewed By JD1316 - Singapore, Singapore

This was the first-time we tried kayaking and it was great. The guide was extremely helpful and informative and the kayaking was easy for beginners. There are 2 routes and we dis a shoeter one that didnt quite make it to the cave :) which is a 6km kayak run. We had a 3 seater kayak with our kid seated in the middle. You can hire a helper who will kayak for you if you need to and it was just 100 THB. Another family hired one for their elderly mother. We really enjoyed ourselves. Good, simple food served at the end and clean basic amenities. We booked our tour from our hotel (Sofitel). Would suggest wearing swimwear, flipflops and a cap and loads of sun block. The visible kind. Or you will get horribly burnt. They provide everything you need including water and a water proof bag for your belongings. The guide was wonderful and took pics of us while kayaking. Overall a great experience and highly recommended. Would go again for the full 6km run!
We were concerned as it was rainy qith choppy seas through our stay but this was very calm and easy.

Tiger Cave Temple (Wat Tham Suea)

This temple complex not only serves as a religious site for the monks who live and worship there, but also features a maze of natural caves in an overgrown jungle valley where stone tools, pottery remains and the mold for making Buddha footprints have been excavated.

Reviewed By Kat B - London, United Kingdom

It took us just over an hour to get to the top and back down… it’s ridiculously steep and a little scary in parts if you don’t like heights but well worth it. There are a few spots of shade on the way up/down but mostly in the sun so it’s best to go early in the day.
The monkeys turned up around lunchtime, they were incredible to watch although one woman nearly got bitten as she was feeding them so one tried to bite the food straight from her hand.
There are a few places to buy food and drink at the bottom and the tiger cave was interesting to see.
It’s a great place for photos and we spent 3hrs at the site which was enough.

Lagoon

Reviewed By Andrew P - Melbourne, Australia

Climbed here twice while I was at Railay Beach, the first time at night after watching the sunset at the viewpoint, then again the next day.
The water is murky, it’s not as nice as i imagined.
I enjoyed the barefoot climbing, while it was pitch black and muddy more.
The lagoon is fun for about 15 minutes

Did Poda island on a Thalassa trip which was 4 islands/snorkeling tour. Poda was our first stop, we went to the side of the island which was not as busy and the beach there is beautiful white sand and just spectacular Emerald waters.

Hong Islands

Reviewed By CPJD00 - Frankfurt, Germany

We had the chance that the flow of tourists was relatively low so that we could appreciate spending a few hours in this wonderful island. Beach is absolutely breathtaking, clear water and you swim among a multitude of colourful fishes. Beautiful landscapes surrounding and possibility to explore the jungle along the tsunami rescue path.
Really unforgettable place.
