Krabi is a small paradise formed by forests, white sand beaches and turquoise waters, but also scenic landscapes thanks to the limestone cliffs.

Krabi is not only to visit for its beaches, but also for its temples, its night markets and its treasures of excursions. Find in this article 5 essential things to do in Krabi.

1. Spend the day at Railay Beach

Railay Beach is a little paradise. Just go to Ao Nang and buy a round trip ticket to get to Railay by boat.


The counters are open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. The price is 100 bath for one way. The only downside is that you have to wait until the boat is full to leave.


I recommend leaving early enough in the morning, especially if you have to wait, to be able to fully enjoy the day on site.


LITTLE NOTE : Pay close attention to Railay's last departure for Ao Nang and make sure you know where exactly the boat will leave in the evening. We were playing with the drone, when we realized that the last boat was gone, we had our return ticket but nobody wanted it. We had to negotiate at length with another boat, and since there were only two of us and no one wanted to go to Krabi, we paid quite a lot.

What to do in Railay?

Climb / Cross Railay from one side to the other on foot


Enjoy the beach / Kayak to Phra Nang Beach (where the famous penis cave is located)



2. Explore the National Parks of Krabi by motorbike

Krabi is full of nature. We did not know where we were going, and that is the best as explorers !


Lush nature, waterfalls, trees like you've never seen before.


3. Witness a sunset at the top of the Tiger Cave Temple

The Tiger Cave Temple is a must in Krabi. You will need a little courage to climb its 1260 steps but the reward is worth it!

4. Shopping in the night markets

Whether in Krabi itself or in Ao Nang the night markets are impressive.


A huge and delicious variety of food, for a small price.


From clothes to jewelry, including paintings and souvenirs, these markets are rich in discoveries.

Perfect for the evening stroll !



5. Wat Kaew Korawaram
