What to expect on your Krabi holiday
The diverse province of Krabi has everything you need for an amazing tropical holiday. When you picture Thailand, you probably imagine lush jungles, limestone cliffs and paradise islands – yes? Well, that is exactly what a holiday to Krabi looks like.
In fact, Krabi ticks all the boxes. You can go in search of hidden beaches in a traditional long-tail boat, unwind on powdery sands and snorkel with tropical fish. You can tuck into traditional Thai dishes – like massaman curry and pad Thai – by the sea, and wash it all down with a cold bottle of Chang. As part of your holiday to Krabi, you can also visit some of Thailand’s most famous beauty spots, like the stunning Koh Phi Phi Islands and hard-to-reach Railay Beach. If you want to travel even further afield, why not fly from Krabi to the popular island of Koh Samui? Or you could hop on a plane and head north to bustling Bangkok.
If you’re not sure where to stay, the coastal town of Ao Nang makes a great base for any Krabi holiday. This small but lively hub has a sweeping beach and plenty of bars and restaurants. Ao Nang is also well placed for exploring the Krabi region – you can take boat trips to the Phi Phi Islands, Railay Beach and beyond. Plus, Ao Nang is just a 40-minute drive from Krabi International Airport.
