Krabi is a traveller's paradise with a multitude of possibilities on offer. The province offers a scuba diving in the Andaman Sea, rock climbing off the mesmerizing vertical cliffs of Railay and Ao Phranang beaches as well as jungles containing giant trees festooned with lianas.

The province is located at the shore to the Andaman Sea and is home to countless limestone hills, both on the land and in the sea as islands. This is a veritable heaven for the rock climbing enthusiasts who come from all over the world to Railay Beach to climb these magnificent hills and mountains.

The limestone hills contain many caves, most having beautiful stalactites and stalacmites. Tham Chao Le and Tham Phi Hua To, both in Ao Luek district, contain prehistoric rock-painting depicting humans, animals as well as geometrical shapes. In Lang Rong Rien cave in 1986 archaeologists found 40,000 year old human artifacts - stone tools, pottery as well as bones. It is one of the oldest traces of human occupation in all South-East Asia. The caves of Krabi are also one of the main sources of nests of the Edible-nest Swiftlet, used to create bird's nest soup.

The accommodations in Krabi are abundant and there is definitely something for everyone. If you are seeking truly luxurious accommodations, the Sheraton Krabi Beach Resort is the place to go. The Sheraton offers an amazing sea view swimming pool, spa and fitness facilities as well as snorkeling, diving and windsurfing opportunities. Besides the awe-inspiring views and the spectacular rooms, you receive the quality and the service that is expected from the Sheraton chain. Less expensive accommodations such as the 4-star Krabi La Playa Resort and the 4-star Maritime Park and Spa Resort also offer fantastic service and scenic locations at an affordable price.
