Krabi, a province on southern Thailand’s Andaman coast, includes a beautiful archipelago of over 130 small islands with tall cliffs and secluded beaches, accessible mostly by colourful long tail boats. Krabi attracts adventurous Thailand travellers for its natural attractions, including waterfalls, white sandy beaches, crystal clear waters, extensive coral reefs, deep caves, and some of the most photogenic sunsets in Thailand. The sunsets are often accompanied by spectacular displays of cloud-to-cloud lightning, best enjoyed from a beachside bar or restaurant.
While not the top destination in and of itself, KrabiTown is a charming provincial capital located along the banks of a river flowing into the AndamanSea. This makes Krabi an important port city for both local fisherman as well as boats ferrying visitors to nearby attractions, including Koh Phi Phi, Koh Lanta, and Railey Beach—one of the premier rock climbing destinations in the world.
