Krabi (Thailand)

Krabi Travel Guide and Trip Resources


The Beach.

If you close your eyes and picture a tropical white sand beach, with turquoise water and perhaps some rocks around it, I can tell you that you are now picturing Krabi in Southern Thailand.

Besides beaches, attractions here include sea caves, coral reefs, limestone cliffs and rock climbing. Also be sure to catch the spectacular sunsets above the long boats that line up in the water at the end of the day.

Krabi town and airport are the common places of arrival in this province, but most tourists thereafter flock to Ao Nang and Ao Railey (known also as Railey beach) or the islands of Koh Phi Phi and Koh Lanta. The former was made famous in "The Beach". [Review by travelindicator]

More Krabi travel resources

Normally we don't like to link or make use of travel agencies, but we will make an exception for the refreshingly helpful Your Krabi ("book smart, book local") which spends more time on giving you useful information than on trying to sell you their products. We especially liked their tips on how to avoid the crowds. And no, we are not affiliated in any way, but we do wish we had come across these guys before our last trip. Anyway.

Tourism Thailand is a good source, as is Krabi Tourism. Wikitravel and Lonely Planet can't be omitted, and the same goes for Rough Guides. Michelle seems like she had a fun trip, this blog has some gorgeous pictures and these guys seem like they had an awesome time too.
