Krabi, Thailand: A Complete Travel Guide

Updated: Sep 11, 2023

The province of Krabi is located on southern Thailand’s west coast. Home to impressive limestone cliffs, dense mangrove forests, white sand beaches, and more than 100 offshore islands, Krabi is one of Thailand’s most beautiful beach destinations. But since it covers quite a large area, some attractions require a bit of traveling. In our experience, Ao Nang is the best place to base yourself, as it offers opportunities for exploring the mainland as well as island hopping. In this travel guide, we share 10 of the best things to do in Krabi as well as great places to stay, eat, and drink.
