Visit one of the most beautiful provinces in Thailand for breathtaking mix of tropical beaches, virgin rainforests, mangroves, caves and coral fringed islands.

Located on the southwest Andaman coast, Krabi is without doubt one of the highlights on a Thailand holiday. Several national parks offer a variety of natural wonders.  Beach lovers will find archipelagos is islands filled with stunning tropical beaches and surrounded by waters full of impressive coral reefs. Further inland, the landscape is full of rainforests and a more rocky terrain which makes it popular with climbers and nature lovers alike.

Two of the most famous national parks. Koh Phi Phi and Koh Lanta are easily reached from Krabi and offer amazing diving opportunities. On land, Khao Phanom Bencha National Park is a rich landscape of waterfalls, rainforest teeming with birdlife and caves drawn together by stalactites and stalagmites. This is the place to spot the elusive clouded leopard. Another national park is the Than Bok Khorani Park. Its steep hills of evergreen forest, mangroves and caves with pre-historic paintings are evidence that this part of Thailand was populated some 30,000 years ago.

Offering something for everyone, Krabi is one not to be missed.
