Krabi phi phi travel information and local guide


Welcome to Krabi, Southern Thailand. The province lies some 800 km south of the Thai capital, Bangkok, and is a myriad of caves, waterfalls, pristine beaches and magical islands all crammed into one tiny province. You can just about see and experience all that is Southern Thailand by venturing to this magical place called krabi.

During your time here, you can walk through jungles containing giant trees festooned with lianas. Travel by boat along rivers and through teeming mangrove forests.

Scuba dive the Andaman Sea; rock climb the sheer vertical cliffs of Ao Phranang and Railay beaches; visit mountain top pagodas with intricate, traditional architecture and panoramic views; discover hidden temples set amongst the surrounding limestone mountains; explore caves, waterfalls and unbelievably magical islands.

You'll see and experience the adventure of a lifetime by heading down to this unspoilt eden of Southern Thailand. Krabi's main charms are perfect sandy, coral fringed, beaches and tropical islands, but don't forget what's on offer inland.

There are those towering cliffs and splendid waterfalls, caves, temples, mosques and, of course, the charming people, who are still unspoilt by the foreign tourist dollar.
