Feeling the need to let go of your worries and chill out? Well, get to Krabi. This province, situated between the provinces of Trang and Phang Nga is an ideal holiday destination, which attracts nearly 6 million tourists every year. You'll instantly feel relaxed upon witnessing its mesmerising sceneries and have some wonderful experiences while visiting its cultural attractions and shopping avenues. You can get to this part of Thailand within an hour an a half by air from Bangkok, which makes it a convenient destination to explore from the Thai capital.

Natural Beauty

Krabi offers some of nature's best gifts. Turquoise waters, beautiful islands, waterfalls, white-sand beaches - there's almost everything packed in this amazing Thai province. One of the well-known beaches is the Railay Beach, which has found its way into the lists of the most beautiful beaches in the world. A visit to the Thung Teo Forest Natural Park would take you to some ethereal landscapes and enchanting natural surroundings. The stunning waterfall in the midst of this park also adds a unique charm to its beauty.

Cultural attractions

Among the cultural delights of this region are the wonderful Buddhist temples, which have been built beautifully in the most fascinating locations. The Wat Tham Sua or Tiger Cave Temple is comprised of natural limestone caves and has the 'footprint of the Buddha' as its main attraction. In order to get to this historic temple, you'll have to ascend more than a thousand steps, but you'll surely be rewarded for your efforts with a panoramic view of the Andaman Sea, rainforests, and the majestic cliffs. Another interesting temple to visit is the Wat Kaew Korawaram. It is also home to the Krabi Contemporary Art Museum and features a staircase lined by some fabulous Naga sculptures.

Adventurous activities

While holidaying in this fantastic Thai destination, you'll get to indulge in some exciting outdoor activities. If you're a rock-climbing enthusiast, the enormous limestone cliffs would offer some challenging climbs. They can be accessed by boats or jungle walks. Island-hopping is another thrilling activity you can enjoy while exploring Krabi. With over a hundred islands around its coastline, you'll certainly have many options to choose from. Some of them are like rock pillars emerging out of the sea with no access points, while others welcome the visitors with caves, coral reefs, and small white-sand beaches. Playing golf, diving, and sea-kayaking are a few other activities you can try while in this Thai province.

Delicious food

You'd never like to leave Krabi without tasting its local delicacies. One of them is Khanom Jeen, which involves rice noodles, vegetables, curry sauces, and hard-boiled egg. When you ask for this dish at any of the food stalls, you'll be asked for your choice of sauce. Yam Kai Dao or Fried Egg Salad is another delicious treat, made using pieces of omelette mixed with cucumbers, onions, celery leaves, chillies and tomato. Pad Thai, which is popular across Thailand, is also available at the restaurants in Krabi. You can also taste various kinds of seafood in the local restaurants, but do not miss the Itim Kati or Coconut Ice Cream.
