Krabi Temples

Everything you need to know about Temples in Krabi

Thai temples are as far removed from typical western places of worship as possible. Instead of the sombre sandstone and granite of many churches and cathedrals, many Thais locate their temples in caves and they are colourful affairs, more often than not 'guarded' by brightly painted animals and images.

Expect a multichrome experience with many twists and turns. Krabi is no exception and its Wat Tham Seua (Tiger Cave Temple) affords superb views from the summit of a nearby hill. Do not, however, expect to see tigers! For a classic reclining Buddha, head to Ao Nang.

Remarks: Dress respectfully and remember to take a bottle of water with you and to remove any jewellery, sunglasses or valuable items which may be taken by the playful monkeys. A visit is best scheduled early in the morning or late afternoon to avoid the midday sun.
How to get there: Tiger cave temple is located about three kilometres from Krabi town and easiest reached by mini-bus, taxi or tuk-tuk (arrange a fare with the tuk-tuk driver in advance). Alternatively you can take a traditional Thai public bus also known as a songthaew from either Krabi town or from Ao Nang. The public bus makes for a really cheap and interesting option where you’ll see plenty of Thai sights and sounds along the way in addition to meeting some locals. The bus stops at the road next to Wat Tham Sua and from there it takes about 20 minutes on foot.

Wat Klong Thom (Temple & Museum)

In the Klong Thom district, east of Krabi Town and about 1 km from the District Headquarters, this temple museum hosts a collection of ancient stones, bronze tools, coins, pottery, decorations and beads which are reputedly to be more than 500 years old.

Wat Sai Thai

Not far from Ao Nang on the side of the main road. Wat Sai Thai doesn't have a real temple but there is a reclining Buddha under a cliff and some small golden sitting Buddhas that make it worth a stop.

The setting with a giant tree in front of the cliff is a nice view from the road.
