This small province offers many sunbathing retreats, while the rich marine environment provides excellent scuba diving and snorkeling opportunities. You can also go kayaking through the caves and mangrove forests, or rock-climb the world famous cliffs of Railay beckon. Several national parks are home to nature trails, waterfalls and hot springs, while forest temples offer that much sought-after peaceful retreat.
Krabi Town is still flooded by many tourists, but it has compromised itself in order to pamper to their many needs. It still manages to retain its ‘local’ feel. The river running through town is always full of fishing boats bringing in their catch of the day, ready to be served at the local restaurants. The town has a genuine feel to it with its many local bars and eating spots, making it worth a visit to experience that authentic touch of Thailand.
Ao Nang is Krabi’s vibrant tourist center. By day it tends to be fairly quiet and relaxed, as most people go off on tours, island-hopping or simply lie on the beach. Night-time is busier, especially on the Beach Road, with its cluster of shops, bars and restaurants.
Railay is a beautiful peninsula situated between Krabi Town and Ao Nang; however, you can only get to it by boat due to the high cliffs cutting its access off. Surrounded by the warm Andaman Sea, lush jungle, and twisted rocks, it supplies enough activities for the most adventurous of souls, while allowing for those who just want to chill in paradise, to do just that.
