Krabi Province travel guide

Beaches · Islands · Scuba & Snorkeling
Visitors usually come back from their holiday in Krabi Province deeply impressed by the region's natural attractions, which include white-sand beaches, extensive coral reefs, numerous waterfalls, caves, and more than 130 islands. The area encompasses some of the most popular destinations floating just off the picturesque Andaman Coast, including the six islands protected as a national park of impressive natural beauty. Most tours of Krabi Province include an exploration of the vertical karst formations jutting from the sea, a dramatic backdrop for water-based adventures. Although mass tourism in the province increasingly exerts pressure, many of the islands here retain a relaxed feel and offer a bit of solitude in a heavenly tropical setting.

Pearl of the Andamans
Thailand's largest island, Phuket lures both die-hard divers and casual beach lovers interested in spending most of their time basking in the sand and munching on local delicacies. Picturesque lagoons and an abundance of modern amenities may be the main incentive for a Phuket vacation, but you can find plenty of other things to do here once you get your fill of sun and sand. Away from the busy waterfront, the island boasts many gardens, Buddhist temples, museums, and aquariums that deserve a top spot on any traveler's Phuket itinerary.
