Krabi Province, which lies along the coast of the Andaman sea in Southern Thailand, is a top tourist destination as a result of its plentiful natural attractions including, white sandy beaches, crystal clear water, extensive coral reefs, numerous caves and waterfalls, and over 130 islands.
Ao Nang is Krabi's vibrant tourist centre. It has the relaxed vibe of a lively town, the beauty of a beach resort, the modern comforts of home. The town itself is small; an hour-long stroll takes you from one end to the other. It is a great jumping-off point to see the rest of Krabi's wondrous secrets, or make it your only target. Either way, you'll thoroughly enjoy Ao Nang.
Phra Nang Cave:
Like Railay, the beach of Pranang can only be reached by boat, and is similarly popular for swimming and rock climbing. Pranang Cave, which often lends its name to the beach, is a small but memorable cave, shrouded in mythology and mystery. The stalactites and stalagmites are outstanding features. Ao Pranang is a beautiful, 600 m long beach which is blessed with pure, white sands. It is quite a hot spot, and is sure not to disappoint sun lovers.
Mu Kho Poda:
Situated in the south of Ao Nang, 8 kilometres offshore. Mu Koh Poda is fringed by clear water, and offers white sandy beaches as well as pristine coral reefs. This is why it is a year-round attraction and an excellent place for fishing because it is not affected so much by the monsoon.
Poda Island is a major island with white sand beaches and clear turquoise seawater, teemed with schools of colorful fish. Not far from Daam Hok Island and Daam Kwan Island, at low ebb, a sand dune emerges to the Northern part of islands revealing a miraculous divided sea right to Thap Island and Mo Island. This is therefore the superb beauty from the air towards the world famous UNSEEN site of Thalae Whaek, the Divided Sea.
Mu Kho Hong:
Mu Koh Hong consists of a group of limestone islands including Koh Lao or Koh Sa Ka, Koh Lao Riam, Koh Pakka, Koh Lao La Ding and Koh Hong or Koh Lao Li Pe which is the biggest island to the south. The attractions on these islands include fine beaches, shallow and deep-water coral reefs and various kinds of fish while popular activities include snorkeling, scuba diving, fishing, sea-canoeing and nature studies on the 400-meter hiking trail around Koh Hong. Mu Koh Hong is located at the edge of the Than Bok Khorani National Park, and is accessible by a 1-hour boat trip from Ao Nang. The park entrance fee is 200 baht per person with an additional fee of 20 baht per person for camping on the island.
Chicken Island got its name from a bizarre rock formation which resembles the head of a chicken. One end of the island consists of steep cliffs while the other end has beautiful beaches along a peninsula. This peninsula gets flooded at high tide, creating a small island. There is no accommodation on Chicken Island. 30 minutes in a long tail boat from Railay is a group of limestone islands which are incredibly beautiful.
