Krabi Travel Guide – Things To Do, Places To Stay, What To Eat


Thailands beauty is one of wonder when you
come here you won’t want to leave it has stunning beaches lots of do
amazing food and some of the friendliest people in the world if you’re looking
for a more family and laid-back place and Krabi is a must-see welcome to our
Krabi Travel Guide where we show you the sights things to do and what to eat when most people think of Thailand they
visualize seeing limestone islands and the beautiful beaches on them in Krabi
there are plenty of islands to see best way to see them is by boat two popular
forms of transportation our speed boat tours where you go with a group of
people or hire your own private longtail boat two islands we visited were Phi Phi Island and Hong island Phi Phi island is the most popular of islands it’s been in movies
James Bond and The Beach to name a couple when you approach by boat it rises
from the sea like a fortress sheer cliffs tower overhead and you’re greeted
with beaches and jungles when you arrive there are many islands that are part of
this tour some with amazing snorkelling beaches one with monkeys on the beach
and another with Viking drawings in it this is Viking cave there’s like pictures of
Vikings inside there this is really cool there’s like drawings sorry not pictures
wow what a day once you arrive at the main port in Phi Phi Island there are
markets restaurants and hotels to enjoy well we’re on Phi Phi Island we’re gonna go
see if we get to the other side here and see a beach we got about an hour before
a boat takes us hopefully we can get back on time right Jaden uh uh how’s that pop super good it’s strawberry strawberry ha ha it was one of the most beautiful places we’ve ever seen can you believe this look at this place unbelievable hong island is a group of
tiny islands which offer breathtaking scenery soft white sand beaches coral
reefs and a beautiful Lagoon This is awesome this is a lagoon in Hong island it’s in the center so we had to go through limestone rocks to get to it it has one of the most
peaceful beautiful beaches we’ve ever seen that’s a photo shoot going on in
one of the most beautiful places in the world I wonder why they would do it here
I don’t get it pretty beautiful people want to be here oh I get it we
enjoyed swimming snorkeling and just hanging out on the beach these islands
have spectacular rock formations we found that the best way to get to these
islands is by hiring a private longtail boat so you’re not rushed and you can
control how long you stay at each Island what do you think of this bay its pretty awesome it’s really beautiful I love it when all the boats leave yeah its just ours we have it to ourselves yeah there’s like four boats here now
visit an ethical elephant sanctuary elephant sanctuary are places for
elephants that have been rescued from either the tourist trade where they get
ridden or work elephants these elephants typically come from not ideal conditions
some are abused overworked and exploited we learned that is actually harmful to
ride elephants as it is very hard on their back
it cost approximately thirty five thousand US dollars to rescue these
elephants so it’s very expensive do your research as we learned that some
of these places will disguise themselves as sanctuaries but they still keep the
elephants in poor conditions we visited the Krabi Elephant sanctuary which had
just opened and was started by the same organization that started at a large
well known sanctuary in Chiang Mai what elephants can get here more habitat more
liberty more happy and more healthy this is our goal not to make elephant light
better you get to feed bathe and get up close and personal with the elephants
cool is that you get picked up and dropped off so no need to hire a driver
rent-a-car the sanctuary is about a 50 minute drive from Ao Nang they have fresh
fruit bottled water and hot showers to clean up after the experience are you kidding me we get to walk with elephants stay in the shot are we lucky we’re so lucky the
cost is approximately 2500 baht per adult which is about $80 u.s. and 2,000
baht per child which is about $65 u.s. not cheap but definitely worth the
splurge if you’re looking for a once-in-a-lifetime experience it’s about
a five hour a day this is probably one of our most favorite experiences in our
entire life the toenails of their eyes only sweat like the eyelashes oh really only sweat that’s it emerald pool and hot springs emerald pool is a natural wonder
of stunning crystal-clear emerald water in the middle of the jungle located in
Thung Teao Forest National Park beautiful place so far love the beauty in Thailand
it’s warm bath like water with a mini waterfall spilling into it we’ve never
seen anything like this before this is amazing one of the most things
best things ever done in my life this is awesome the ground is really slippery
and there are ropes to hang on to to help you get in to access it there’s a
beautiful nature trail along the boardwalk that takes about 15 minutes or
so to walk get there early to avoid the crowds it’s approximately one hour drive
from Ao Nang it’s an easy drive from Ao Nang so we rented a car because we had
children but you can also get scooters or take a tour the park entry fee is 200
baht for adults approximately seven US dollars at a hundred baht for kids
approximately three three US dollars definitely worth it wow you can’t beat this were in this green aqua pool in the middle of a jungle I
wish I was the only one here Krabi hot springs is just 15 minutes down the road
from Emerald pool in the same National Park is the natural hot springs that comes
from volcanic thermal springs we are taking a go-kart to the hot springs the
kids forced me I try to incorporate Fitness in everything we do when we
travel and this is the exact opposite of that well we still have to walk it
has tiered water pools like mini hot tubs in the middle of the jungle Oh this is nice its like a hot tub except hotter it is said that these pools have healing
properties but they were sure relaxing the fee to enter 90 baht per person so
just under three dollars us again best to get there early as there can be
crowds and crowds of people and it’s quite small tiger cave temple it was
discovered in 1975 when a monk went to meditate in a cave and he was said to
have seen Tigers you can’t even see tiger paw prints in the cave this cave
was so incredible monks still practice there and you can even participate in a
blessing ceremony make sure you cover your shoulders and you also have to take
off your shoes and go in bare feet that was cool
there was monks in there and you could get blessed by the monks we didn’t do that but should have got the YouTube channel blessed new experience for us just outside the cave
and down the path you can climb up 1237 steeps treacherous stairs to the top of
a mountain that has a large Buddha statue at the top oh my god going up the
steep hill where are you there you are so like it’s like you’re like under my feet I am holy
smokes it’s called stairway to heaven and even has signs that read pray for
your safety as it’s so dangerous the kids started to pick up the pace they’re
starting to run up the stairs if you climb these stairs be careful or
monkeys as they can be aggressive we didn’t have any issues but we saw
someone get attacked for their plastic bag oh that’s aggressive if it I don’t
know if I want to pass it you don’t want to go up No! alright we’ve continued on there
was a monkey scare someone was attacked by a monkey and it scared the kids we’re
good if you dare make the climb you will be rewarded with an amazing view at the
top well that is a wall of rain approaching us and we gotta go down
those stairs so hopefully we make it oh my god we made it down it’s flat the
ground is flat and no more stairs yeah I worship the flat ground I thought we were gonna die for sure at
least one of us I thought maybe me because I got the
biggest feet ya because you’re clumsy and and the steps were made for children Huay Toh Waterfall this
waterfall is a hidden gem and worth a visit off to another waterfall it’s
called I don’t know huh toe waterfall what’s it called Huay Toh Huay Toh big toe waterfall we’re gonna go see a big toe
it’s only about a half an hour drive from Au Nang in Khao Phenom Bencha
National Park it’s a fairly short easy hike to the waterfall which has five
cascading waterfalls with pools at the bottom you can swim in we’ve found it
not too busy at all making it worth it as it’s not really touristy it’s in a
national park and the cost was a hundred baht per person which is about three
dollars U.S. alright that was awesome risking my life for the shot not really
looks like it though doesn’t it pretty safe up here it’s a
beautiful waterfall Ao Nang this is one of the main towns and it has a couple of
beautiful beaches lots of shopping restaurants massage places coffee and
nightlife when shopping make sure you haggle on price it’s lots of fun and the
vendors seem to expect it and enjoy it as well
we’ve been haggling for a while we’ll see if this works out I think we’re
gonna get a good deal let’s just hope that the stuff works Ao Nang is a very
busy place so if you are looking for a more peaceful place then you can just
stay outside of Ao Nang like we did Ao Nang is it must visit for shopping
and eating and just hanging out I didn’t know that there’s parts of thailand that are muslim I think that’s what that is it seems like it goes on about five times a day you hear that its kinda cool actually hearing it in person accommodations there are a
lot of nice places to stay in Krabi we stayed in two different places
first we stayed inland at an Airbnb in the jungle at a place with a nice pool
and parrots then moved to the pelican resort which was really nice with a huge
pool breakfast included and right across from the beach there were lots of great
Thai restaurants to eat at as well all of them right on the beach within
walking distance we usually choose to stay at Airbnbs but the prices for
these beautiful resorts are fairly reasonable one thing to keep in mind is
they’re not big grocery stores like back home and it’s difficult to find food to
cook meals rice and eggs was our go-to meal what to eat there are lots of great
Thai restaurants all over our favorite dish was Pad Thai of course there are
lots of small family-owned Street food places that we tried that were also
quite good smoothie places are all over as well the best one was in Ao Nang
called fresh your day the only issue we had with this place
was sometimes it was closed even though it said it was open coffee good coffee
is hard to come by in Thailand but there is a couple of places like Starbucks in Ao Nang which can get you by beaches the beaches here are some of the most
beautiful in the world some you get to by boat on hong island and Phi Phi island for
example on the mainland there are beaches in Ao Nang which are quite busy
but beautiful Tub Kaak Beach this is a long sandy beach that is lined with four
and five star resorts it is very quiet and a great way to get away from the
crowds water is warm and you can wade out in the calm waters which is perfect
for families and small kids another Beach is Klong Muang Beach which was
right across the street from our resort this Beach is lined with restaurants and
bars this was a great place to watch the sunset and afterwards a fire guy would
perform for you this was also a great place to hire a private long-tail boat to
see the islands nearby one honorable mention that we really wanted to go to
but ran out of time is Railay beach some things we didn’t get to do
but should be high on your list are visit Krabi town
it’s known for two daily fresh markets including a night market to hang out and
get great local food there is also Krabi River and a temple that’s in the
center of the town also take a ferry to Koh Lanta which is a beautiful island
south of Krabi this would be a couple of days to do as you’d want to stay
overnight if you are looking for a place with stunning beauty and plenty of
adventurous activities to do then definitely put Krabi on your list as
part of your Thailand visit there are so much to do amazing food to eat and awesome
accommodations please watch our 9 Don’ts of Thailand video before you go so
