Relax Coffee and Restaurant serves phenomenal breakfast, with tons of American or English breakfast options. You can even construct your own plate with the individual items on offer.
This attraction isn't for the faint of heart. It is a temple at the top of a large hill/small mountain, and it's about 1,200 steps up to the top of the temple. Once there, the views are spectacular.
These hot springs are a great place to rest your muscles after climbing to the top of temple. The water is clear and salty, great for rejuvenating your skin and offering a truly relaxing experience.
Take one of the boat trips to this island, with gorgeous beaches, snorkeling, and lunch included.
One of my favorite restaurants in all of Thailand. The owners are two adorable Thais, and May speaks great English and is always full of smiles! She loves chit chatting with customers, and she bakes her own breads, so this is also a great spot for breakfast. The curries are absolutely delectable and the menu is fit for vegetarians!
Grab a delicious English style breakfast here in Ao Nang before setting off for the day.
Among the most beautiful sets of islands in all of Thailand, Phi Phi is great for snorkeling and diving takes place just off the coast. It is becoming more and more of a party island, which doesn't suit all types of travelers, but so far, this hasn't taken away from the stunning views.
This is a great set of islands for snorkeling and swimming. 'Hong' means 'room' in Thai, and the major beach to visit here is almost like a little beach-ocean room, with limestone cliffs that almost completely cut the cove off from the rest of the ocean. You can book a tour to these islands from the tour shops in Ao Nang.
Great place to pick up some souvenirs or relax with a massage at one of the massage huts to the left on the beach. I personally recommend Hut 5 or 6, offering cheap prices and a clean facilities! There is also a cool bar to visit called 'The Last Bar.' When you're shopping, make sure to haggle with shop owners when buying multiple souvenirs, but be realistic. For dinner, there are many excellent seafood or Indian food options.
Ban Lay is a delicious seafood option. A bit on the pricier side but well worth it for the quality of the food and the great view of the sunset!
Great place to grab a quick breakfast. Homemade baked goods and snacks for eating on the go.
Continuously voted one of the best beaches in Thailand, Railay Beach is accessible from the Chao Fah Pier in Krabi Town. There are long tail boats that take you there, and you'll find the men who operate them yelling 'Railay' at every corner of the pier.
This beautiful beach is accessible from Railay beach via a footpath. The beach has long tail boats that park at the shore and cook up Thai snacks sell smoothies.
There are actually three markets in Krabi: two night markets that operate every night and one weekend-only night market. The two everyday markets are great places to grab mango and sticky rice for a delicious dessert. Meanwhile the weekend night market, is an event in itself! You'll find great souvenirs and handcrafted items as well as yummy food options, and there is usually a variety show with singers, dancers, and even a fire juggling performance! You can easily spend hours at the market.
