Beautiful Krabi is an unspoiled fishing town and for most people a stopover when heading for other destinations in Thailand. But if you’re a rock climber you should definitely consider staying in Krabi for more than just a few nights. If you plan to visit Krabi we can help you put together your journey.
Krabi is located on the west coast of southern Thailand and surrounded by towering limestone cliffs. This small fishing town has an important port with ferry connections to the islands of Koh Lanta, Koh Phi Phi and the beaches of Ao Nang and because of this, Krabi is a natural stopover for many travelers and backpackers on their way to other parts of Thailand.
Krabi has a tropical climate with an average daily temperature of approx. 33 degrees and high humidity. The heaviest rainfall is in the monsoon period between May and October.
Krabi has a night market located with low priced delicious local food, mostly with a Muslim influence. Another market worth visiting is the morning market. Come early as the market close up at 8 AM.
One of Krabi's special attractions includes the twin limestone peaks Kanap Nam which is placed like two sentinels on each side of the river. Krabi is also one of the very few places in Thailand that offer organized rock climbing. Climbers from all over the world come here to find challenges in the limestone pillars. Rumors say that only the south of France can compete with the climbing difficulty this area offers.
Most people reach Krabi by train or bus from Bangkok or Phuket, but you can also fly directly into Krabi International Airport, located only 10 km from Krabi's city limits. Since Krabi is located on the coast, a lot of local transport is operated by boat. Otherwise it is easy to get around by taxis and other local transportation.
