Charm of Krabi
Krabi, So Enchanting That You Must See It for Yourself
By now you’ve probably figured out we are heading to Krabi Province, known as the pearl of the Andaman Sea. Krabi is not only about islands and the ocean but there are a lot of other charms that we’ll tell you about.
Charm of Islands
Why Oh Why Is the Ocean So Enchanting?
Why is the ocean such an emerald green and clear to contrast with the horizon and the beach? That’s because Krabi’s coast borders the Andaman Sea, which is the origin of the spectacular sand and clear waters. We must not forget the concerted efforts of tourists and locals to preserve the environment, keeping the 160-kilometer coastline of Krabi in pristine condition until today.

If you’re looking for the perfect white sandy beach to take pictures for your social media update, “Maya Beach,” the paradise of Phi Phi Islands, is the place. This lagoon is famous the world over ever since it was featured in the Hollywood blockbuster “The Beach.” Go ahead and check in here and see yourself collecting ‘likes’ from your friends.
Charm of Nature
Our Southern Home of Magnificent Rivers, Mountains, and Seas
Where are we headed? It must be the South because apart from the fabulous islands, Krabi also features fantastic views of mountains and other natural attractions. Don’t believe us? Let us take you to look at other facades of Krabi.
An unseen destination that everyone must experience for themselves is the “Hot Spring Waterfall” which looks like your usual waterfall but is actually hot spring water that falls through the cracks of rocks like a waterfall. The temperature of the water is at 40 to 50 degrees Celsius, generating steam along the rock formation. Those who love the Japanese onsen can take a dip in the mineral hot spring water for relaxation and to refresh your skin.
And if you come across Gurney’s Pitta birds, you’re in for a treat because this is practically the only place in the world that you can find this near-extinct breed. Here’s proof for you about the abundance of the forest here.
Charm of Adventure
An Adventure Once in Your Life to Rejuvenate Your Soul
Adrenaline junkies, listen up! Those of you wishing for some adventure must not miss rock climbing. What’s better than running up a sweat amidst a backdrop of fabulous scenery and unbeatable ambience. “Railay Beach” is the place to go for some rock climbing action that rivals any rock climbing destinations around the world. And don’t worry about safety because the rock climbing here is of world-class quality.
Those of you wishing for some action that is a little less high up in the sky should go for kayaking at Ban Bor Thor with its mangrove forests that brings you up close and personal with nature. Kayak through trees and caves to your heart’s desire and experience the lifestyle of people living along the coast. What’s not to like?
There are plenty of other activities for you to enjoy on this trip, such as a boat ride through hundreds of islands, snorkeling to view the coral reef, or just chilling by the stunning beaches. What a treat for us travel aficionados!
Charm of Culture
Would You Like to Make Merit with Me?
Apart from lots of action for adventure lovers, those into religious pursuits can visit the various temples like the Tiger Cave Temple with its scenic viewpoint of the beautiful Buddha statue. Experience the local culture that will charm you.
The “Loy Rua Chao Lae” is one important tradition that dates back many generations and cannot be found anywhere except for the boat people of Lanta Island. The event is held in November of every year and is aimed at making merit and warding off evil for the boat people of Lanta Island and nearby islands. The lights from the boats reflecting on the water make for a memorable image.
