5 Must-Visit Attractions in Krabi – Remarkable Highlights for the Visitor

The enchanting Thai province of Krabi offers an array of must-visit attractions such as Khao Khanab Nam, Wat Tham Sua, Ao Nang Beach, Thung Teao Forest Natural Park and so on.


Khao Khanab Nam

The well-known Khao Khanab Nam happens to be a pair of limestone mountains that are a significant local landmark as well as a symbol of Krabi province. You will see that these mountains are divided by a river whilst featuring several caves underneath them. If you make your way into these caves, you will have the opportunity to admire the intriguing rock formations and look up to the imposing mountains above you. You will also be able to ascend one of these mountains and experience the stunning views on offer at the summit.


Wat Tham Sua

If you appreciate interesting religious attractions, you should undoubtedly take the opportunity to experience Wat Tham Sua, a Buddhist shrine that is also referred to as the Tiger Cave Temple. According to local tradition, this cave was at one time occupied by a ferocious tiger; imprints within the rocks that resemble paw marks suggest that there is some truth to these legends. This complex of caves that is bordered by jungle, today features several shrines and religious statues, with robed monks to be seen praying here. The summit of the local hill is considered to feature a footprint of Buddha, but you must undertake a lengthy climb to reach it.


Ao Nang Beach

The attractive Ao Nang Beach happens to be a popular area for tourists, drawing backpackers, families, couples and other kinds of travellers of varied age groups. In addition to enjoying the attractions of the beach itself, you will have the opportunity to visit the nightlife hotspots and market to be found nearby. In fact, this locale features a selection of the finest clubs and bars to be found in Krabi. As you enjoy the Ao Nang things to do, an accommodation choice to consider from which you could easily visit the above beach would be Avani Ao Nang Cliff Krabi Resort.


Thung Teao Forest Natural Park

The entrancing Thung Teao Forest Natural Park is regarded as being one of the loveliest natural features of Krabi. At this park, you will encounter a seemingly magical landscape containing a fascinating collection of fauna and flora. One of the highlights here would be the captivating Emerald Pool featuring gleaming bluish-green waters which would be ideal for an invigorating dip. You will notice the knotted roots of trees and tendrils swinging in the breezes which contribute to the almost surreal ambience. This area of rainforest also features walking trails, picturesque waterfalls and thermal springs.


Lanta Animal Welfare

The Lanta Animal Welfare establishment which is situated at Koh Lanta island is sure to draw the interest of animal lovers holidaying in Krabi. If you visit this charitable establishment, you will be able to gain an understanding of its objectives and have a look at the various rescued animals living there. If you donate to this organisation, your contribution will go towards feeding the resident animals, sterilisation programmes, maintenance of the establishment, marketing, medical care for the animals and other worthy causes.
