Active things to do in Krabi

The most famous thing to do in Krabi is to visit Railay beach, and the place is absolutely worth it! But instead of laying all day long on the beach, there is also some other fun things to to near by.

The long tail boat from Ao Nang in Krabi is going to Railay beach, but I will recommend to walk to the other beach called Phra Nang that is even more beautiful!

When you walk from Railay beach to Phra Nang beach, you will see a sign with “viewpoint” and “dangerous” next to a rope up a steep path. Of course me and my travel-buddy had to go up there, and so should you! Its was a very fun climbing trip with a nice view on the top!

After the climbing trip, with sweaty bodies, it was time to take a swim. Phra Nang was surrounded by tropical nature, caves and long-tail boats. So beautiful! No long time after, we were swimming into one of the caves.

People were also climbing with ropes all around the place, and I really wanted to do the same! So I think I have to come back and climb an another time 😉

Its quite expensive to sleep at a hotel at Railay beach. To get cheaper accommodation, find a place in Ao Nang. From there you can take a long-tail boat to Railay beach for 100 thai baht each way. These boats a going all the time, and if you want to see the sunset from the boat, you can take the last boat back 5 pm. Its beautiful!

An another day we decided to walk the 1200 steps up to the Tiger Cave Temple. We were taking a bus from Ao Nang in the morning, bought water and some snacks at the shop next to the entry, and walked up in 30 minutes. We went down after spending 1 hour on the top enjoying the view and the place. It was also a cave on the bottom where a tiger used to live.

Before or after Krabi, I will also recommend you to take the bus and ferry to Kao Tao or Koh Phangan. Koh Tao for its cheap diver certification, and Koh Phangan for its beautiful nature.
