Krabi 7 Days Mini-Guide

If you're only in Krabi for 7 days...

Get to know Krabi! Seven days gives you just enough time to really get a taste for Krabi. The beautiful province in southern Thailand offers its visitors a wide array of stunning things to see and do and a full week gives you the time to fully explore many of them, giving you a varied and exciting stay.

Explore the hinterland with its rainforests, high-perched temple, natural wonders such as the Crystal Pond, hot springs and caves. Take to the sea and visit more islands further offshore. Krabi’s coastal area is a wonder to behold, blending the characteristics of Phang Nga Bay (made of tall limestone cliffs) and paradisiacal islands featuring white sand beaches and turquoise waters. The main asset of Krabi is that it is not yet overdeveloped by the tourism industry, so you will still get the feeling of having all of these marvels (mostly) for yourself. Here are a few ideas for making every day memorable.
