Krabi 3 Days Mini-Guide

If you're only in Krabi for 3 days...

Our Krabi 3 days mini-guide will come at hand if you only have three days to spend in this charming province in southern Thailand. Even in such a short period of time, there are many things that you could see and do in Krabi.

We suggest you to take to the water, both above and below the surface (after all it's warm - 28 degrees on average!), visit the islands, take in the sun, go snorkeling and get to know the fish! For a total contrast, especially if you're not used to the sun, head for the cool interior. Visit the Tiger Cave Temple (Wat Tham Sua) on a mountaintop for a different perspective.

Day 1 - Island Hopping and snorkeling

Visit Koh Poda, Koh Gai and a couple of the smaller islands. While you could do everything yourself and hire equipment, boat, etc., it's less hassle to take a tour that includes snorkeling equipment, a boat and a guide. Full day tours usually include lunch and snacks as well.

Try Krabi 4-Islands tour, a half-day tour which allows you to visit four of the most beautiful places around Krabi: Phranang Beach, Tup Island, Chicken Island, and Poda Island. 

Day 2 - Krabi Landmarks

For a contrast (and to avoid getting totally sunburnt) visit the Tiger Cave (Wat Tham Sua) for breathtaking views of the province. Climb the 1237 stairs to the mountaintop shrine.

The Krabi City & Cultural Tour will show you Tiger Cave, Shell Fossil Cemetery, and Nopparat Thara Beach.

If you have any energy left, go shopping in Krabi Town. If not, just relax on the beach. Catch the sunset at Noppharat Thara Beach and try some local food.

Day 3 - Phi Phi Islands

If you haven't already, visit the Phi Phi Islands, they're an absolute must-see; a full day tour to Phi Phi by speedboat is the best way to discover these small islands belonging to Krabi Province.

If you prefer to stay local, take a longtail boat to Railay and relax on the beach. Walk around the cliffs and watch the rock climbers (or try yourself - Rock Climbing courses are available)

Stroll around to Phra Nang Beach and see the Princess Cave, a local shrine with strange phallic symbols and images.

Spend the evening at one of Krabi's great seafood restaurants in Ao Nang or Krabi Town and enjoy a wonderful seafood dinner. 

Krabi Delights - For any visit

Just a few of the things you must do in Krabi....

Just take in the stunning sunset over the islands off Ao Nang, Noppharat Thara or Railay West and relax with a cool sundowner

Stroll around a local market and sample some of the superb snacks on offer.

Spend a little time shopping in the local stores and markets. Among the usual souvenirs are some great value-for-money bargains.

And above all... enjoy!
