Top Things to do in Krabi to Kickstart 2019

Making sure your time in Krabi Counts!

As we move into 2019 most of us have a long list of resolutions and things that we want to accomplish in the coming twelve months. For many, this involves travel, adventure and discovering new places. If you’re already in Krabi, or on your way to this magical destination in southern Thailand, then you, my friend, will already be starting your year off on the right foot!

One thing’s for sure, there are loads of great activities to keep you busy during your time here – the difficult part will be deciding which you most prefer. To help out with that we’ve put together a list of our top things to do in Krabi:

1. Viewpoint Railay Beach

One of the first things you’ll notice when you arrive in Railay Beach in Krabi is the towering cliffs that surround the area. While Railay is a world-famous destination for rock climbers with it’s giant pillars of limestone that extend into the sky, if you’re not so much into scaling up the dramatic cliffs, you may find hiking to the viewpoint to be more your cup of tea. The hike is just less than a kilometer, but it’s pretty strenuous and the view at the top is just WOW! Go for another 10 minutes or so onward and downward past the viewpoint to enjoy a saltwater lagoon.

2. Tab Kak Hang Nak Hill Nature Trail

If you love hiking and incredible views, then this hike, which claims to offer not just the best views in Krabi province, but in all of Thailand, will not disappoint. Round trip it’ll take about 6 hours, which includes an hour or so at the top to enjoy the scenery and snap a few photos. What awaits you at the summit is a spectacular view of the bay below and the plains. The hike is rated moderately difficult and is steep in parts, so you’ll need a good pair of shoes and lots of water to keep you hydrated on the climb up. We also recommend that you go earlier in the day when the heat is less intense.

3. PhraNang Cave

Up for some light cave exploration while in Krabi? Then a visit to PhraNang Cave, also called ‘Princess Cave’, located on the east side of Reiley Bay, will make for a great day trip. The cave is only accessible by boat, and it’s well-known for its awe-inspiring stalagmites and stalactites. When you arrive at the PhraNang Cave you’ll be surprised to see that it’s actually a phallic shrine to a princess goddess. Fisherman use to come here to make offerings, which they believed would bring them good luck in their catch. The cave is situated on a stunning beach and it’s a great place to chill and spend the day.

4. Take a Krabi Sunrise or Sunset Cruise

We left this one for last because we believe it’s the most spectacular, and it’s sure to either start or cap off your day in just the perfect way! A Krabi sunrise or sunset tour will take you by wooden Siamese Junk out to the five islands – Poda, Tup, Si, Ta Ming, Wasam and Gai where you’ll spend the morning, or afternoon, swimming in bioluminescent waters, snorkeling, kayaking and paddle boarding while soaking up the sun and taking in the views of the break-taking surroundings. And if that isn’t enough you’ll then be wowed by a mouth-watering Thai buffet. Is this not the most perfect day in the most chilled, extraordinary setting?

Krabi Sunset Cruises

Again, while far from being an exhaustive list, we guarantee that checking out these activities and spots during your time in Krabi will make your trip to this magical place completely unforgettable!

Krabi sailing toursWhen it comes to the time of day, although the Krabi sunset cruises are most popular, there’s also something magical and special about the very early morning sunrise cruises.

Morning Cruises: Why You Should Consider Doing It

When it comes to taking a cruise, there’s a time of day that is often overlooked – morning cruises. A morning cruise provides one of the most beautiful and serene times to be on the water, however, often people don’t consider this time of day, either because they don’t think that this time slot is an option, or for some reason, they don’t believe that the cruise will be as enjoyable. However, that simply isn’t the case! By enjoying an early morning cruise, customers are able to take advantage of an oftentimes less crowded boat, better cruise prices, one of the calmest times to be on the water, and equally gorgeous views. But why are people not taking advantage of this wonderful option?

Morning Cruises are More Cost Efficient

Because of the way that we traditionally think about cruises, for most people, commemorating a special event with a morning boat cruise might seem a little out of the ordinary. But the fact that a sunrise cruise is not the go-to option, can make it an even more unique experience. By opting for a morning cruise, which is less popular, but equally as incredible, guests can have the same remarkable experience, without having to worry about the higher price tag. That saving means a larger budget for other fun activities or more vacation indulgences!

The Cost of a Sunset Cruise

Traditional, short-length cruises generally take place at sunset, which is when people like to be on the water to wind down the day and soak up the sunset. Sundown is a popular time for social gatherings like birthday and anniversary parties, graduations and other large gatherings of people looking for good times and to create lasting memories. However, along with the high demand for sunset cruises comes an often equally high price. This means that vacationers who are budget-conscious end up spending more to be on the water during this time.

Stunning Views

Sunsets are among one of the most beautiful natural occurrences that just about everyone loves to soak up. They’re often the backdrop for some of life’s most romantic and memorable moments. In the same breath, these moments would be just as beautiful at the beginning of the day, with an incredible sunrise.

Morning Cruises - Sea Birds in KrabiThey say that ‘the early bird gets the worm’ and this is never truer than for those who wake early to see the world come alive with a stunning sunrise.

Morning cruises in Krabi also present a fantastic opportunity to see Thailand’s vast array of marine life, including seabirds, which are at their most active at sunrise.

Can’t you just picture starting your day off lounging on the teak deck of our boat, enjoying a delicious gourmet breakfast, as the sun illuminates the Andaman ocean?

Morning Cruises Provide More Flexibility

Another of the benefits of morning cruises is that customers get to enjoy a less busy setting and more flexibility. Because of the lower demand for these cruises, morning cruises provide customers with the opportunity to host larger gatherings, parties, and events. Depending on the circumstances, these cruises also provide more flexibility, timewise.

Sunrise cruises are among one of the best-kept secrets in the boat cruise industry. They offer an affordable option for customers who are looking to take advantage of the most stunning backdrops that Mother Nature has to offer.
