Luxury Krabi Holidays
The coastline at Krabi is one of Thailand's most distinctive, with huge limestone cliffs towering above talc-white sands. It's a popular place with rock climbers - you'll often spy them clinging to the cliffs in the mornings, particularly at photo-worthy Railay Beach. The limestone is honeycombed with caves that are ripe for exploring. Wat Tham Sua (Tiger Cave Temple) is a favourite - its name comes from the paw prints in the stone inside the cave, supposedly from a tiger.
The waters off Krabi are studded with dozens of islands. The four that make up Koh Hong are a popular daytrip, as are the two Phi Phi islands, Phi Phi Don and Phi Phi Leh. Take a boat out for the day and you'll find pristine beaches, half-hidden coves and some of Thailand's best snorkelling. Other standout day trips include the Emerald Pool, a beautiful pond filled with mineral-rich spring water, and the hot spring waterfalls, where you can enjoy the luxury of wallowing in balmy natural pools and cascades.
Krabi Town is where you'll find the hub of activity. Make a beeline for Thanon Khon Dern, or Krabi Walking Street, for street food stalls and shops selling souvenirs, handicrafts and rainbow-hued sarongs.
