Travel Tips to Krabi (KBV)
Krabi: Impressive coastal landscape with beautiful islands in the Indian Ocean
In southern Thailand, next to the Indian Ocean, lies the small province of Krabi. The capital of the region bears the same name. This coastal region has been a popular holiday spot for many years, because off the coast of Krabi are multiple small islands rising out of the ocean like mountains. These islands are especially popular with climbers. Every year climbers from around the world hop on a flight to Krabi to take on the challenge of these limestone rocks. In total, Krabi’s coast stretches over 70 miles, with over 130 islands in its waters - only parts of which are accessible. There are regular ferries travelling to these islands, both from Ao Nang Beach and Krabi Town. The most popular islands are the Ko Hong archipelago and Ko Poda.
The archipelago Phi Phi with the Viking cave
One of Krabi’s major sights is the archipelago Phi Phi. It consists of many small islands, with the biggest amongst them giving its name to the entire group: Phi Phi Don. Close to it is the island Phi Phi Leh, on which you can find the famous Viking Cave. Many birds are living there; mostly swallows, which gather in masses every year. You can also experience history here, with many historical drawings to be found on the east and south of the island. These include drawings of junks, and sailing boats with more than one mast. The drawings are believed to date back to the 19th century. Beautiful beaches complet
The Khao Phanom Bencha National Park with its waterfalls and caves
North of Krabi lies the Khao Phanom Bencha National Park. It not only protects the forests within its borders, but is also the location of Krabi’s highest peak. Highlights of Khao Phanom Bencha National Park include the countless caves and dreamy waterfalls. You can visit the park any day between 8 am and 4:30 pm. Explore the park on your own, or book an expert tour in advance. You can even camp on marked spaces within the national park.
Wat Tham Suea, the Tiger Cave Temple
The temple complex of Wat Tham Suea is an incredibly special sight in Krabi. According to legend, a mighty tiger roamed the area and left its paw prints in the stone - which gave the cave its current name. As well as exploring the Tiger Cave, you should definitely set aside time to climb up to the temple rock. But don’t forget to bring a drink for the 30 minute climb! It will be tiring, especially because of the heat, but the spectacular view and the glamorous Buddha statue on top of the rock is well worth the effort. By the way - entry to the complex is free!
