Boasting of 160 kilometer long coastline along the Andaman Sea, Krabi is a province in Thailand’s southern regions. It is characterized mainly by tranquility that is only more emphasized by some of the most beautiful natural wonders the world has to offer. Serene islands and coves, pristine white beaches, magnificent coral reef formations, limestones and karst displays, lush mangroves, and thick jungle forests, all of these make Krabi a veritable holiday destination. Add to that the graciousness of Krabi residents, and you’re all set in a place that is virtually without parallel on earth. A Krabi tour package, indeed, is a doorstep to a hidden paradise that can only be found in this part of the world. The following attractions and activities are just few of the many highlights that make a stay in Krabi an unforgettable moment.
The Krabi Rainforest tour will not only satiate your senses with rich natural beauty that the rainforest is known for, it is also an educational experience that will leave an indelible mark in your travel memory. The scenic journey within the rainforest will bring you up-close to a hot spring waterfall, a rubber plantation, a nature trail, an emerald pool, and a tiger cave temple. The waterfall, known to be rich with mineral salts, is ideal for soothing muscular pains. The emerald pool, on the other hand, boasts of a 1 to 2 meter deep river source, with warm waters that complements the middle of the jungle. The tiger cave temple is a meditative space within the forest, boasting of a thousand year old trees, as well as the best viewing point in Krabi.
Phi Phi Islands
Only 45 minutes off Krabi lies the beautiful Phi Phi Islands, an excellent area for snorkelling, as much as a fabulous aggregate of stunning islands such as the Bamboo Island and Han Kling. The Bamboo Island is a beautiful desert island with a magnificent beach and excellent coral reef formations, making it a good site for snorkelling. Hin Klang, on the other hand, is also an excellent snorkelling area, being on the open sea and thus with most of the coral fishes to be found in the whole Phi Phi Islands. There is also the monkey beach, an area that is home to much of marine life in Phi Phi, and also to some beach monkeys. Other components of Phi Phi include Tonsai Bay, Phi Phi Leh Bay, Loh Samah Bay, and Maya Bay, all having unique natural features to offer.
Klong Talen Canoeing and Elephant Trekking
Canoeing along Krabi’s Klong Talen “Mangrove Maze” is an excellent opportunity to get up-close with nature. The 500 feet channel gives a firsthand experience of monkeys, eagles, and lizards, among others, all set in limestone canyons, rock gardens, and semi-hongs with mangroves and other wildlife.
Elephant trekking, on the other hand, is a one hour affair capped with a relaxing swimming experience in the natural river park.
