Krabi Hotels & Accommodation


Krabi Hotels & Accommodation

Krabi (Thai: กระบี่) is a town (thesaban mueang) on the west coast of southern Thailand at the mouth of the Krabi River where it empties in Phang Nga Bay becoming one of the most visited areas of Thailand. As of 2005 the town had a population of 24,986. The town is the capital of Krabi Province and Krabi District.

Krabi is famed for its limestone formations, calm crystal seas and powdery beaches. Krabi Town is one of the most visited towns in the province, since it serves as a departure point for ferries to the islands in Phangna Bay, such as Phi Phi and Koh Lanta. There are several beaches of note on the mainland close to Krabi Town, including Ao Nang, Railay Beach and Had Yao.

Krabi Town itself doesn’t have a swimming beach and is mainly used as a stopover point for travelers on their way to the islands. Krabi International Airport serves travelers from Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, Darwin and Singapore and is just 15 kilometers from Krabi Town.

The main activities in Krabi Town and its outlying villages center on beach life. Diving, snorkeling, kayaking and day cruises are all popular pastimes, while the more adventurous can do some rock climbing up Krabi’s limestone cliffs. Ao Nang is one of the more popular tourist areas in the region, the main road through town lined with hotels, restaurants, bars and shops. Ao Nang beach is also one of the most picturesque in Thailand, karst formations and longtail boats adding to the location’s postcard perfect looks.

Phi Phi Island, located about 25 kilometers off the coast is a popular destination within Krabi Province. Owing to its small size, there are only a few hotels on Phi Phi Island, but these cater to the full range of budgets. Maya Bay is the most famous beach on Phi Phi Island, having been immortalized in the movie The Beach.

Klong Muang and Tub Kaek beaches are bit further north of Ao Nang and tend to cater to a more up-market crowd. The resorts on Klong Muang and Tub Kaek beaches offer a relaxed atmosphere and truly breathtaking views as well as top-notch services and facilities. The secluded Railay peninsular is a quiet area with only a handful of resorts sharing arguably the most exclusive beaches in Thailand.
