Luxury Krabi Holidays

Limestone cliffs and stunning beaches


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.

When to go

Thailand has a tropical climate, which means it’s hot and humid for most of the year. Rainy months vary depending on where you are in Thailand: in south-western areas like Phuket, the monsoon season starts around April and finishes in October, while south-east destinations like Koh Samui see more rain between September and December (there’s still plenty of sunshine between showers, though). The hottest months are March to June, although humidity is high and average temperatures can push 40°C. Wait until after the rainy season if you prefer slightly cooler temperatures – between December and February, averages stick to the high 20s and early 30s.

Visa Information

British passport holders do not require a visa for stays of up to 30 days.


Tipping is not expected in Thailand, although most hotels and restaurants will include a 10% service charge.

Introduction to languages

The official language of Thailand is Thai. English is widely spoken too.
