Paradise neglected Krabi Island has forgotten for a long time is becoming the new target of many tourists with stunning coastal vistas featuring towering limestone cliffs, soft white sand beaches, small coves and offshore islands.
Krabi Island, neglected paradise
The town of Krabi is not very attractive for tourists. There are some cheap hotels, but these are rarely used by travelers. The main attractions are the beaches west of the town and of course the islands. There are caves, waterfalls and the Tiger cave temple (Wat Tham Sua) should be must see. From the top of the hill a big golden Buddha oversees the landscape with spectacular views over the town, the river, the limestone mountains and the Andaman Sea.

Divers can find attractive spots around Koh Lanta, Koh Phi Phi and the many smaller islands. And finally Krabi is an excellent place to start island hopping tours across the southern Anadaman Sea.
This is a quiet place that is suitable for those who want to find a gentle seaside city with long coastline for walking in brilliant sunset, having islands with white sandy beaches, blue water, the diving area that full of fishes as well as the shops having all kinds of snacks to linger.
