The province of Krabi, in southern Thailand’s Andaman Sea, is the quintessential tropical paradise and only an hour’s flight from Bangkok. This once little-known province on the west coast of Thailand is now known internationally for having some of the most stunningly beautiful beaches in the world.
There are over a hundred large and small islands that juristically belong to the province, including the famous Phi Phi Islands. Most of these islands are uninhabitable, thus Ao Nang on the mainland provides a convenient and comfortable base for visitors who aim to explore these islands during the day.
Krabi is also blessed with a plethora of other natural wonders such as waterfalls, caves, fossil grounds and hot springs. Additional attractions in the province include stunning limestone cliffs and rock formations which make it a haven for rock climbers. For the active traveller, there is a host of nearby sea excursions, scuba diving and snorkeling trips that can be easily arranged.
