The province of Krabi is located on the western coast of mainland Thailand. The area's name is derived from the Thai word for 'sword,' following an old Thai legend that an ancient sword was unearthed in the main town of the same name. With a population of just under 500,000, Krabi is a bustling state, covered mostly in palm oil and rubber plantations.

Things to do

Ko Lanta Marine National Park:

The Ko Lanta Marine National Park is a collection of hiking trails and scenic lookout points encased in a protected park reserve area. The park spans across 15 islands in the Andaman Sea, and during the low season visitors can hike out to the long-tail reeds. Camping is also allowed on several islands.

Hammock House:

Visitors will enjoy the Hammock House, the largest collection of quality hammocks in all of Thailand. Various tribes are represented in the exhibit, and the house has copies of their Lanta Biker Map. The map details various lookout points and sites of interest for those renting scooters on the island.

Phi Phi Viewpoint:

Travellers will enjoy the view from Phi Phi. The hike to the viewpoint may taxing for some and includes steep steps and narrow pathways. From the viewpoint, a quarter of a mile up, travellers can see the vistas of the nearby marine park. Follow the signs for Ao Lo Dalam from the main village.

Time for Lime:

Time for Lime is an ideal dinner spot for travellers. This hip establishment offers five-course traditional Thai dinners daily starting at 1800B. Cooking courses are also available, with both basic skills classes and advanced Thai cooking courses with a twist. A modern concrete kitchen completes the stylish atmosphere.

Krabi Eco Cycle:

Travellers will enjoy a day tour with Krabi Eco Cycle. The tour, just shy of 10 miles, travels through oil and rubber plantations, hot springs, small villages, and ends with a swim in the 'Emerald Pool.' Lunch is included on the full day tour. Half-tours are also available for visitors.

Liquid Lense:

Liquid Lense is a diving photography school in Krabi province. The school offers one-day/two-dive and six-day/nine-dive seminars. A videography tutorial class and 'Tips and Tricks' course are also available. The latter is extremely popular with visitors who already have underwater photography experience.

Weather in Krabi

Krabi lies on the western side of Thailand. Monsoons cover the island from October to January, and therefore travel is recommended from February through to early summer. During monsoon season, flooding can become dangerous for those unaccustomed to the heavy rains. During the dry and cool season – in the earliest part of the calendar year – temperatures range from 18-32°C.

Travel to Krabi

Visitors can fly into Krabi Airport (KBV) from a variety of mainland locations. The airport is located on Highway 4, which loops around the majority of mainland Thailand. The nearby island of Phuket, perfect for shorter day trips, is accessible on Highway 4 as well, or by ferry from the town of Krabi.

Quand on arrive ça fait pas très chic car travaux partout. Ce qu'on recherchait c'était une villa sans vis à vis...ce que nous a confirmé l'hôte. Sauf que les ouvriers qui travaillent à côté sont juste en face de la piscine et La villa en travaux donne sur la piscine aussi, certes il y a partiellement des cannisses pour cacher mais on vous voit. Donc on a pas profiter de la piscine dommage !!!!! Il manque des poubelles dans les salles de bains et un grille-pain  Le reste est moderne, neuf, Le ménage est fait tous jours. Wifi.....quand ça marche les enfants sont contents..quand ça marche. Villa bien située.

There is plenty of space in this property - the upstairs terrace is perfect for relaxing in the shade and watching the sunset, and the area downstairs is great to relax for a spot of afternoon sun and a much needed dip in the pool. The property is suffering a little with wear and tear in some of the outside areas but this did not affect the stay. We also had a hiccup with water when the property ran out but you have to accept that things in Thailand don't run as smoothly as in the UK. Once resolved (quickly) the rest of the stay was lovely. The Levels is a 5 minute walk to the main strip where there are plenty of restaurants and mini marts to get what you need. And the beach is another few minutes from there. If you like privacy, don't want to be overlooked, and a place with a sea view then I would recommend The Levels.
