Canoeing is also available from both Railay and Ao Phra Nang beaches and if you want to enjoy some fresh seafood why not book a place on one of the many available fishing trips.
Krabi Town is a shopper’s paradise, giving you the chance to purchase a colourful variety of souvenirs for friends and family back home – everything from orchids to Chinese and Khmer antiques, and Thai silk are available from the town’s many vendors. Worked up an appetite? Head to the Ao Nang Seafood Restaurant and watch the sun sink below the horizon while enjoying a sumptuous feast of fresh seafood caught earlier in the day.
Krabi’s nightlife is relatively low-key compared to the notorious Phuket scene but you will still find several cheerful little bars where you can sip a cold Chang or a cocktail. Try Oscar’s in Krabi Town or the Cat’s Eye Bar on Ao Nang beach for some gentle entertainment after the sun has set.
