Beautiful Natural Sites in Krabi, Thailand – Mother Nature’s Gifts!

Krabi happens to be one of the most popular destinations in Thailand thanks to its beautiful national parks, breath-taking beaches, scenic islands and plenty of places of cultural significance. There are plenty of things to do in Krabi and here are some places that we think you should be visiting.


Thung Teao Forest National Park

The Thung Teao Forest National Park is so stunning that it stops tourists in their tracks when they first set eyes on it. It is known to be very popular with photographers and nature lovers especially. The Emerald Pool is the source of all this awe. It is a natural lagoon that is situated at the bottom of a lowland forest that is ancient and thick and full of diverse wildlife making it a great location for a hike.


Maya Bay

Maya Bay is located far out to sea, close to the Andaman Islands. It is one of the most famous stretches of beach in Thailand. You will find guests that book into Ao Nang beach hotels find similarities to Maya Beach and the island of Phi Phi. The reason? It was the famous beach setting from the 2000 Leonardo DiCaprio movie The Beach.


Khao Khanab Nam

Located between the twin mountains of Khao Khanab Nam is a river. It is a breath-taking sight to see and the mountains especially with their wide peaks reflecting in the glassy water when the sun is in the right angle in the sky, the effect is magical. Most tourists also attempt to climb the mountains to get unparalleled views from the top. And there are also dark and secretive little caves that hide under the mountains which you can explore and learn more about the prehistoric skeletons that are preserved there.


Klong Thom Hot Springs

Klong Thom hot spring is rich in minerals and is said to aid in the cure of many ailments including skin conditions and joint pain. The water in the stone pools vary from around 30 to 40 degrees Celsius and makes for a beautiful picture with the tumbling waterfall, the twisting tree roots and the shade of the gigantic trees. The small drive it takes to get there from Avani Ao Nang Cliff Krabi Resort makes it well worth the effort.


Susan Hoi

Susan Hoi does indeed sound like someone's name. It is known to the Thai people as the Shell Cemetery. It is an unusual naturally occurred site. The shale rock formations are said to be the skeletal remains of prehistoric shellfish. There are very few of these kinds of places in the world which means you should go and check this place out when you are in Krabi. The site, which is protected by geological conservation is believed to date back at least 20 million years. There is an information centre nearby where you can learn more about the formations if you are interested. It is also a great place to take children.
