What to Do in Krabi in 2 Days
Discover the best of Krabi in just 48 hours
Discovering all of Krabi province’s most popular attractions in only two days is something of a challenge; Krabi counts so many natural and man-made stunning sites to explore that it is impossible to see them all in such a short period of time. Yet, this mini-guide is here to help you to organise a pleasant short stay in Krabi, a busy short stay filled with interesting discoveries.
With over 150 islands off its coast, mangrove forests, rain forests, beautiful beaches, limestone cliffs, small villages in rather undeveloped rural areas, and only one main resort town, the province of Krabi is the perfect place to spend at the same time a relaxing and exciting holiday. This mini-guide aims to show you the must-see places of Krabi, you surely won’t be able to see them all in two days but you at least have something to start from. The best is to plan the visit of three places per day – morning, afternoon, and evening. This way, you are sure to make the most of your two-day trip to Krabi.

Day 1 – Discover Krabi Coast and Islands
The first ‘must-see’ area in Krabi is Railay Peninsula. Getting there early will permit you to easily explore the three main beaches of this unique site in southern Thailand. Reachable only by boat, you will land on Railay West before to head to Railay East, then Phranang Beach on foot. Its remote location makes Railay a wild place with a strong hippie atmosphere and stunning landscapes; you’ll feel like you stepped back in time.
After lunch, you can go island-hopping by long-tail boat, and head to Koh Poda or Koh Hong – two of the most popular islands located in the vicinity - for an afternoon dedicated to sunbathing, swimming, and snorkelling.
In the evening
At the end of the afternoon, get back to Ao Nang, the prime resort town in Krabi, to enjoy the eclecticism of its nightlife scene. From the hustle and bustle of Soi RCA or Soi Bamboo to the quieter ambience of beachfront venues such as The Last Fisherman or The Last Café, there’s enough choice for everyone to spend a great night in Ao Nang.
Day 2 – Discover Inland Krabi
On the second day, you could explore the most famous sites located away from the coast in Krabi Province: take a long-tail boat to explore the mangrove forest and the caves in Ao Luk district, or challenge yourself by climbing the 1,260 steps that lead to the summit of Tiger Cave.
After an invigorative lunch on Krabi Town’s riverside (at Bai Toey Seafood for instance), you can drive south to visit the Thung Teao Forest Natural Park which houses unique natural wonders such as Krabi Crystal Pool and the Blue Pool. On the way back toward Krabi Town, you can stop by Klong Thom Hot Spring to take a bath in these thermal springs which are believed to have therapeutic effects.
In the evening
Late afternoon, you can go and sample a great choice of local dishes at Chao Fah Night Market which is held everyday on Krabi Town’s Riverside and offer both cultural and gastronomic interests. The rest of the evening could be spent at one of the cool bars – Chilling, Old West Bar, or the Rooftop Bar - situated in proximity of Krabi Riverside. In case you'd be around Krabi Town on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday, you should not miss the most important weekly event in the capital of Krabi Province: the Walking Street!
You could also get back to the shore in a way to enjoy the sunset for dinner. Whether you choose to go to Ao Nang, Klong Muang, or Nopparat Thara, there's an astonishing choice of cool venues to dine on Krabi coast...
