Krabi Offers an Adventure Lovers’ Haven

Krabi hotels offer a mesmerizing stay with traditional hospitality and fabulous cuisine that visitors will enjoy. Krabi lies on the southern coast of Thailand, a gorgeous jewel set in the warm waters of the Andaman Sea. It is reputed to have some of the most pristine and beautiful beaches in the world. It has a typical tropical climate and a torrid monsoon season. Most people choose to visit Krabi and its sun-drenched beaches during the dry season between November to April when it’s hot and dry.

Krabi has made a name for itself in the water sports world. It has some spectacular dive sites and a rich marine life for snorkelers to enjoy. The sea bed around Krabi has caves and caverns covered with brightly colored anemone and it’s often possible to see a leopard shark or a barracuda. Ao Nang Beach is one the most popular sites to start your dive. The seven islands around Ao Nang have a diverse marine life and have diving sites for people of all abilities. Koh Yawasam with its shallow waters and easy access to deeper water makes for an ideal location for diving tutorials. It is possible to get your Padi certification in Krabi. Koh Yawabon on the other hand is restricted only to very experienced divers because of the strong currents and large no light zone.

Enjoy Sun, Sea, Sand and Sensations

Because of its spectacular natural beauty, large areas of Krabi have been declared sanctuaries or Marine parks. Nature lovers are drawn to Krabi to trek the dense jungles and explore the wide variety of fauna and flora here. The experience is enhanced as one can stumble upon sparkling rock pools, gushing hot springs and the green mountain slope interspersed with silver threads of distant waterfalls. Natural lagoons catch the eye with the crystal clear and brilliant hues of the water. The Emerald pool is one of the most famous and is known for its beauty. The authorities of some natural parks have maps with Nature trails marked out so that visitors can safely trek through the jungle while hitting all the landmarks in the area. Many of the hot springs are said to have therapeutic value. Irrespective of the veracity of this claim, the hot springs can still be enjoyed as a relaxing and calming experience.

Krabi is also becoming increasingly popular with adventure sport enthusiasts such as rock climbers. The huge limestone cliffs, caves and immense rock formations make it an ideal target for rock climbers. There are many courses offered on the easier cliffs. The cliffs around the Railay Beach are particularly popular with the climbing fraternity. Guided climbs are easy to find and there are over 600 climbing routes mapped out. Whether you are staying in a Krabi hotel on the main land or you choose to make an island your base, there are many reasonable food options around Ao Nang and Krabi town and you will never run out of things to do and places to see with an abundance of delicious food everywhere.
