6 Best Day Trips from Krabi

Blessed with more than 100 islands just offshore, paradise comes in different forms in Krabi. Here are some of the best day trips you should absolutely take while you are in the Andaman Sea:

1. Hong Island

Hong Island is one of your best bet to find serenity amidst Krabi’s growing tourism boom. It’s still uninhabited, pristine and far from over-commercialization—and its massive size means you can always find a secluded corner for yourself. There’s even a secret turquoise lagoon which can only be accessed via boat!

2. James Bond Island

Located in Phang Nga Bay National Park, James Bond Island is home to some of the coast’s most dramatic limestone karsts with lush vegetation. As its name rightly suggests, the national park was used as a filming set for the 1974 blockbuster “The Man With The Golden Gun”.

3. Phi Phi Islands & Maya Bay

The most picturesque beach in Thailand? Quite possibly. The single most photographed beach in Thailand? Definitely! Maya Bay became an overnight sensation after it gets featured in Leonardo DiCaprio classic “The Beach” and if you do not mind sharing the beauty with a little bit of crowd, it’s definitely still worth visiting at least for an Instagram shot.

4. Krabi 4 Islands

Krabi 4 Islands is the easiest and cheapest way to sample as much beaches as possible if you have only a limited time in Krabi. Be impressed by the aptly-named Chicken Island, snorkel in front of the famous tall rock of Koh Poda, walk the narrow sand strap between Koh Tub and Koh Mor, and end the day at the magnificent Phra Nang Cave in Railay.

6. Tiger Cave & Emerald Pool Jungle

Retreat to one of Thailand’s most peaceful temples protected by a high mountain range and take a plunge at the brightly-colored natural hot spring. It’s a different way to experience Krabi beyond the beaches.
