Things to see and do

  • Wat Kaewkorawaram
    2.5 stars

    This shiny structure with a blue roof is reached by a relatively long staircase with colourful naga guardian serpants which are quite well done. We found a gang of rag-tag kid monks running about at the top of the stairs. While the outside of the structure has a definite modern edge, the inside is ... read more

  • Thara Park
    2.5 stars

    Continue past the marina and you'll come to Thara Park, which for a small city is quite a large and impressive public green space. It features benches and gazebos overlooking the river, a large central section with playgrounds shaded by tall trees, a pro-size football pitch, basketball courts, free ... read more

  • Fossil Shell Beach (Ban Laempho Gastropod Fossil Park)
    3 stars

    Slabs of stone that contain 40 million year old fossils, mostly molluscs, emerge from the coastal waters every day at low tide; shoot for late afternoon to see the widest collection. Visitors take off their shoes and walk out on the limestone flats to view the fossils. You'd have to be a biologist ... read more

  • Ko Klang
    3.5 stars

    The island is home to a small Muslim fishing village and is a fine place to get a feel for rural southern Thai life. A narrow paved road that's great for bicycles skirts the perimeter of the island and leads along the mangroves, making this a good alternative to the boat trip. Ko Klang is perhaps ... read more

  • Wat Tham Seua (Tiger Cave Temple)
    4 stars

    Nestled below a shaggy karst cliff to the north of Krabi town, this forest Buddhist temple was founded in 1975 by the now famous Thai meditation monk, Ajahn Jomnien. In those days, the area was plagued by a Communist insurgency and the monk is said to have created the temple as a safe haven for ... read more

  • Khao Phanom Bencha National Park
    3.5 stars

    The main attraction is Nam Tok Huay To, a spectacular 11-tier waterfall with numerous pools suitable for swimming. On the largest tier, water cascades for some 70 metres down a jagged rock face. If the lowest natural swimming pool is too crowded, take the steep trail to the right if facing the ... read more

  • Than Bok Kharani National Park
    3.5 stars

    Many who visit Than Bok Kharani independently come for the eponymous waterfall located near the visitor centre. The cool emerald water flows over sloped tiers that tangle with the roots of banyan trees into a host of natural pools that are great for swimming. Locals flock here on weekends to escape ... read more
