There’s always the challenge of narrowing down your sightseeing list while on vacation. You don’t want to put too many things on your list and run out of time to see everything. But you also don’t want to find out about cool places after your trip is over. If you’re hoping to land in Krabi, Thailand any time soon, this is a list of Krabi sightseeing spots that are considered to be off the beaten path.
Nam Tok Rawn – Steamy Krabi Sightseeing
The hot springs are in the same jungle reserve as the Emerald Pool and Thung Teao forest Natural Park (which you should also check out if you have time). The water averages at a warm 35-40 degrees Celsius and is full of natural mineral salts. It does tend to get busy so you should try to get there early to enjoy it before anyone else! On a cooler or rainy day this would be the perfect place to make the most of the poor weather.
Tab Kak Hang Nak Hill Natural Trail
It’s more of a hike than a walk. This “nature trail” has rough terrain and gets quite steep, but it’s totally worth it to see this view. You will be able to see for miles once you get to the top. For this reason, it had to make the Krabi sightseeing list! Make sure you have decent footwear and lots of water, the hike there and back (plus an amazing photo shoot) can be done in four hours.
Huai To Waterfall
Located in Khoa Phanom Bencha national park, this waterfall has crystal clear water that’s cool enough to refresh anyone after they walk around. There are five large pools the waterfall cascades down before it reaches the bottom. There’s also a “hidden” waterfall beyond this one that requires another short hike to see.
Caves in Ao Luek
Ao Luek is well-known for a mangrove forest and tons caves to explore. The caves can be reached by long-tail boat and have many ancient cave drawings on their walls. It’s highly recommended to do this as a guided tour to learn all of the history as you are exploring each cave.
Island Hopping Cruise
Out of everything on this list, this is likely one of the more well-known Krabi sightseeing adventures… but the views are so unbelievable that we couldn’t help but add it! There’s no way you can go to Thailand without hitting the water and exploring nearby islands. The island cruise allows you to see a different side to Thailand that not everyone is lucky enough to experience. You can even watch the sunrise or set across the Andaman Sea, which is just as stunning as it sounds.
You already knew the beaches were legendary, but now you have so many other things to check out in Krabi, Thailand. From hidden waterfalls to hiking trails and caves, Krabi offers so many different experiences that aren’t as well-known. The best part is, these are only some of the many Krabi sightseeing adventures you can go on while you’re there!
