Visiting the Towns
Where else to start a long and rewarding tour of the island of Krabi than by exploring its capital town first. Challenge yourself and climb more than a thousand steps to get to one of the most famous temples in Southern Thailand, Tiger Temple, sitting atop the mountain. Once you are up there, readily claim your reward, a stunning view of the area and the azure sea. Wat Kaew is another temple in Krabi Town situated on Thanon Maharat which is worth checking out. If you are up for more adventure proceed to checkout Khao Kanab Nam, two joined cast rocks which are the symbol of Krabi.
Once you get tired of all the walking and climbing, go for a soothing yet surprisingly inexpensive massage at Dhara Massage and Spa, while those who prefer more sight seeing can always visit the Contemporary Art Museum of Krabi just across Wat Kaew.
It is easy to traverse from one coast to the next through boats, but some locals will tell you that you have never really experienced Krabi if you have not given the local songthaews a try. These vehicles are mostly publicly operated and provide transport to most points of the island, including major attractions like Ban Huai To, Ao Nang, and Amphoe Lam Tham. These public songthaew have a terminal at the Vogue Department Store situated on Maha Rat Road.
Weather in Krabi is generally hot, although this tames downs between November and April (the same time travelers come in to this beach destination). The weather in Krabi for the months of June to November, on the other hand, is the time when lots of rainfall and the island gets a lot of moisture, a far departure from its usual dry weather.
