There are many things Krabi has to offer, especially to visitors. Along with boasting some of Thailand’s famous beaches, islands populate the sea that can be explored by anyone.
Krabi Hot Springs

Krabi is also known for its incredible hot springs located all around the province, that attract visitors by the thousands all year round.
