Krabi ThailandKrabi's Sunshine Adventure and much more with Thai Airways
Krabi , Thailand
On Thailand’s Southwest coast, looking out over the Andaman Sea, lies Krabi, a resort paradise with so much to offer the traveller. Think Krabi, think sunshine and beaches. This is very true, but visitors can be assured that there are many more memorable experiences to be had in this wonderful tropical paradise.
Krabi can boast a unique coastline dotted with over 150 islands and islets, some dressed with small, white sandy beaches trimmed with turquoise waters.
There are many rocky limestone outcrops rising up out of the sea in incredulous forms supporting their own untouched micro eco-systems.
Island hopping along the coastline is a spectacle that is a must. The photo opportunities are unique and almost endless, and the “Wow” factor will never leave you. Explore beneath the calm waters with fantastic scuba diving and snorkeling, or maybe workout on the surface with some sea kayaking.
As difficult as it may seem, it is a good idea to prise yourself away from the beach to explore more of Krabi’s delights. The un-spoilt hinterlands are a real treasure.

Step out on the well-planned nature trails and you soon find yourself cut off from the outside world. You enter a unique world of bio-diversity of new dimensions, color, flora and fauna.
