Ever wondered if you had it in you to survive as a castaway on an island? Well, now’s your chance. Krabi is the main town in Krabi Province, Thailand. This fun little town is right on the Andaman Sea. What’s the big deal? The province boasts more than 150 islands and 120km of shoreline. With numbers like that, it’s easy to find yourself a stretch of sand that’s uninhabited aside from a few unlucky crustaceans and some coconut trees (BYO volleyball like Tom Hanks).
Not into solitude? No problem. Instead, you could discover one of the more frequented beaches where you’ll find locals ready to top off your drink with an umbrella and show you Thailand’s natural beauty. Ecotourism or resort relaxation? You can have it all with our Krabi holiday packages. Pack your swimsuit and goggles—they’ll help with the DIY spear-fishing!
Lounging on the beach working on your tan is totally doing something right? Right! And you can do it all day, everyday if you want. If you don’t want, then check out Fossil Shell Beach. Formerly a freshwater swamp, its “slab-shaped” chunks of earth contain millions of fossilised snails and sea creatures. They’re only about, oh, 40 million years old. Makes you feel like a spring chicken again, huh?
Speaking of feeling young, why not try out the world-famous rock climbing at Railay while you’re here? Or the diving? Both offer chances to explore the natural wonders of the Andaman coast on our Krabi holidays.
After all that exploring, you’re going to be famished. Time to stuff your belly! This coastal area features (you guessed it) seafood. And curries. Lots and lots of curries. Try the mild coconut-milk curries of Thailand, the Malaysian-influenced Phanaeng or the Indian-influenced Massaman. Local eateries are the best, but don’t worry: Most of the resorts have plenty of varieties to try too, making our Krabi packages a sure ticket to a food coma. Wash it down with a Singha or Leo beer before hitting the beach (again).
When you want a little alone time, take a boat ride out to an island. Try Ko Lanta or Ko Phi-Phi. Is spelunking more your style? Hop in one of our Krabi car hire options and drive up to Ban Ao Luek to check out the caves there. While you’re putting the pedal to the medal, check out the Emerald Pool and Huay Toh Waterfall in Phanom Bencha National Park. Who’s up for some jaw-dropping beauty? Please raise your hand, because that’s kind of what holidays to Krabi are all about.
Ready to relax and/or explore the beaches and rainforests of Thailand? We can’t wait either. Luckily, we have plenty of Krabi package deals just waiting to be scooped up out of the internet and onto your plate. And while you’re at it, why not scoot across the bay to the big city with Wotif’s Phuket holiday packages? Snatch up heaping portions of savings before these deals turn to stone—er, fossils!
Life's way too short to jealously scroll through images of other people's getaways. It's time to get cracking and see what this big old world has to offer.
