Sitting like a jewel on the south of Thailand’s western coast, Krabi is a paradise seeker’s dream. With its limestone cliffs soaring high out of the ocean, dense mangrove covered expanses and over a hundred offshore islands, each with their own unique elements of beauty, there’s something about Krabi that makes it an unmissable location for your Thailand holiday.
Some of the more popular places in the region include the Phi Phi Islands and Railay Beach. But that certainly doesn’t mean that these are all you’ll find in Krabi. Spend some time in this magnificent region and you’ll find everything you could possibly want and more.
A lot of people see Krabi as similar to how Phuket was 10 or so years ago – which means that it hasn’t got the extensively developed infrastructure that you might find in more modern regions of Thailand. So there aren’t as many easily accessible options for getting there. For most people, the simplest way of travelling to Krabi is catching a flight directly from Bangkok. This is a popular option because it also gives you the opportunity to spend some time in the exciting hub of activity that is Thailand’s capital.
Another way of getting there is to transfer by road from Phuket. This is approximately 2 hours by car or bus and even though it may not seem appealing to sit in the back of a car for the entire trip, it’s a great way of seeing this beautiful place from the ground. You’ll also find plenty of interesting sites to stop on the way either for photo opportunities or to taste some of the local delicacies.
