The town of Krabi is equally loved by the active adventurer and the beach lounger. Limestone cliffs with perfect pockets and overhangs are a favorite of many climbers, while the beautiful beaches offer relaxation and a view for those who choose not to deep sea dive among the region's coral reefs.

What People Are Saying About Krabi
My recommendations, just make sure you find a right waiting place outside the Krabi airport :)
Good day out especially re the well cared for elephants but been to many better waterfalls.
Best elephant experience you will find in Thailand. The elephants walk you around untouched rain forests. We also go to play with the baby elephant which was very fun.
The guide was very nice and the place very beautiful. There were only 3 people plus the guide. After lunch we went to Koh Hong, unfortunately it was raining. Even so, everything was great. I advise to take water shoes for Koh Hong as it's rocky in the water and you can hurt yourself. I also saw that the prices in any of the agencies in Krabi were much more competitive.
A bit slow to get started from the gathering point, but the tour itself provided a great range, good lunch, well-paced with a great guide.
