If you mention Krabi you could very well be talking about the Krabi River, the town of Krabi, or the entire Krabi Province. Either way, you'll still be talking about a beautiful place on the southern coast of Thailand near the Andaman Sea.
Krabi is an ancient place where people have lived for tens of thousands of years; and it has the ancient artifacts to prove it. Today, many tourists come to see exactly what prehistoric man already knew--how gorgeous it really is.
It doesn't matter what your reason for coming is, as you'll fall in love with Krabi anyway. You'll find sweeping vistas after rock climbing limestone cliffs or see all sorts of local fish during a day of SCUBA diving. The beaches are just perfect for lounging or try kayaking if you want something a bit more adventurous.
Krabi is also famous for bird watching, yachting, and cave exploration. Then there's all the snorkeling, hiking through national parks, and eco-friendly tours. There are also some 80 islands close to Krabi in case you want to try finding an uninhabited one for some real seclusion.
It's been said that the best time to come to Krabi is from October to April during the non-monsoon months. Torrential rains during cyclone season could put a damper on all the outdoor activities.
Just bear in mind Krabi's weather is tropical with only two seasons throughout the year, either hot or wet. Average daily temperatures are highs in the very high 80's and lows in the high 70's.
Whatever the weather or however the rain, Krabi throws a heck of a party. The Krabi Boek Fa Andaman Festival kicks off the tourist season in November with all sorts of fun cultural activities.
Then you've got the Laanta Lanta Festival in March, the Chak Phra Festival with Buddha overseeing it all, and the Loi Ruea Chao Le Festival taking place twice a year on the full moon of the 6th and 11th lunar months.
Arrival to Krabi is easy enough with an international airport and falls along the Phetkasem Road, one of four major Thai highways. Ferries can take you to Ko Phi Phi and Krabi Town, but bicycle is often the best mode of getting around.
Grab the Krabi!
