Lagoon in Krabi

Think of Thailand, and you’re probably imagining impossibly white sands, longtail boats and jutting limestone karsts rising dramatically from the emerald sea; welcome to Krabi. With an impressive 93-mile coastline, the province of Krabi is the gateway to the offshore paradise islands such as Yao Yai and Phi Phil, but also a breathtaking destination in its own right. Known as Thailand’s beach capital, a visit here wouldn’t be complete with a trip to Railay Beach, framed by rocky cliffs and lapping shores. Marvel at the cliffs spearing from the ocean, explore the coral reefs and waterfalls, and try your hand at rock climbing while enveloped in some of the best scenery in the world.
