Krabi's location is an excellent departure point to explore other islands. There are group tours that visit certain islands which usually include a lunch and a specific water activity, such as snorkelling or kayaking. A set time is given to spend on each island, with enough time to enjoy a good swim. Another option for those with more time up their sleeve is to rent a long tail boat or speedboat and choose which islands you want to discover. The prices of course are much higher than a tour group but well worth it if you want to remain in control of the day's pace and direction. There are a multitude of dive sites in the Andaman Sea to choose from but in early 2011 some were closed by the Thai Government in a controversial bid to assist reef recovery from coral bleaching. But still diving here is good and along with marine life and the unaffected reefs, there are under water tunnels and caves to be explored as well. If you've never gone scuba diving before and would like to try, a number of PADI-certified dive schools can be found in Krabi. For snorkelling enthusiasts, Krabi is not short of snorkelling sites. The best locations for snorkelling require taking a boat to areas such as Koh Kai (Chicken Island) or Koh Mai Phai (Bamboo Island). The waters are crystal clear and tropical fish are plentiful to see but again coral bleaching is noticeable in particular areas. You can get there with a snorkelling tour or rent a long tail boat. Water sports are an obvious past time around Krabi, but if you're looking for a change and you are not afraid of heights, rock climbing may be just for you. The limestone cliffs offer a formidable challenge for seasoned climbers, however climbing schools in Krabi can offer a taste of the sport for newbies. Jungle trekking through Phanom Bencha or Than Bokk-horani national parks provides for an excellent way to explore the area's luscious rainforest, waterfalls and lagoons.

Travelling the 185km from Phuket to Krabi takes about four hours by bus and it's best to check with the bus terminal for departing times as it is subject to change seasonally. If you're looking to travel by train, there is no direct service to Krabi from Bangkok. You'll need to take the train from Hualomphong Station to Nakhon Si Thammarat or Suratthani then a taxi or bus to Krabi. Contact the State Railway of Thailand for more information on departure times.

Post card images of Krabi give the impression that it's a tropical wonderland with limestone karsts towering over sandy beaches or jutting out from the blue green waters of the Andaman Sea - and they aren't wrong. And due to its natural attractions, Krabi attract tens of thousands travellers, many whom are sun seekers just looking to sit back and relax on any one of the province's many scenic beaches. Among the most fashionable but secluded spots on Krabi are the Railay beaches (which incorporate Railay West, Phra Nang Cave Beach, Tonsai Beach, Railay East) and Hat Tham Pranang which includes some magnificent caves and a lagoon. Amid the hundreds of islands of the Andaman Sea accessible from Karbi are the popular Phi Phi Islands (perhaps too popular), Poda Island and the 52 islands that make up Koh Lanta National Park. Being the closest to Krabi, and just under half an hour away by long boat, Poda Island is popular with day-trippers and offers a combination of spectacular panoramas, snorkelling or swimming and just plain lazing on the beach. Krabi's picturesque limestone formations also draw experienced rock climbers (or those looking to learn) to scale some of Asia's most spectacular cliffs. If you've never been to Krabi town before, the first things that may take you attention are the two towering 100m high limestone 'hills' which are separated by a river. The hills are known as Khao Kanab Nam and are worth a visit, especially as one has a cave inside it. As you may have gathered through earlier mentions in this section, cave systems are spread throughout the province. Kayaking tour groups visit semi submerged sea caves called 'hongs' while others caverns found in the Ta Prang canal mangrove swamp can be visited by long-tail boat during low tide. Some cave systems have become Buddhist temples (wats) while other contain the rock art created by Thailand's ancient inhabitants. Near the Khao Phra Bang Khram Nature Reserve, in south Krabi, there are natural hot springs at Klong Thom where the 35-40C water flows into layered "bathtubs" formed out of stone. The Bang Kram Wildlife Sanctuary is the said to be the best preserved lowland rainforest in Thailand and there are more bird species living here than any other parts of southern Thailand. Here you will also find Sa Morakot (Emerald Pool) at the end of a trail. The natural spring water pool lies in a tranquil setting amidst the centre of the forest reserve. Krabi boasts numerous national parks, such as Khao Phanom Bencha and Than Bokk-horani, which offer the opportunity to do adventure and ecotourism activities.

Nightlife in Krabi is more understated compared to that found in Bangkok or Phuket and the establishments are modest and low key. Be it in the little sois or towards the beach's southern end, Ao Nang is where the majority of bars are found. There are a few rustic Irish themed bars and more traditional open bar or open aired Thai establishments. There are also beachside joints in Ao Nang if you want to be near the ocean to take in the sunset and a few live music venues. The rows of bars which make up 'The Soi' provides a collection of noisy girly establishments, but nothing like what is found in Patong in nearby Phuket. There are a number of bars at Railey Beach, each with their own distinctive ambience. During the peak season Railey Beach has numerous beach parties (ie full moon parties). If you're searching for an activity to do in the evening that will get your heart kickin' and happen to be in Krabi on a Monday or Friday, the Muay Thai boxing rink is open. The venue is located around Nopparat Thara Beach and goes into the late evening. Bamboo bar at Railay East also hosts Muay Thai boxing three nights a week (Mondays, Wednesdays, Sundays). Beyond all that, most people seem to prefer to also just to chill and relax at their hotels or have a stroll along the beach.
