The province of Krabi, located in Southern Thailand bordering the Andaman Sea, has so many of its many attractions on the coast that ferries are the ideal way to get around. Possibly the most popular beach is near Ao Nang Port, which connects the residents to the famous island of Phuket, as well as Phi Phi and the Lanta Islands. The port area is particularly busy during the summer months, with tourists flocking from all over the globe to relax on the sunny beaches and admire the breath-taking views.
The pulling power of Krabi belongs in its national parks; there are several scattered across the island, each of them boasting spectacular views, adventurous walking trails and some are even home to well-known diving areas. For those that love to put on their hiking boots it is the perfect destination. In the evening, most of the cities lying in the province possess myriad of bars and restaurants full of tourists enjoying the warm weather.
Navigating around is relatively simple, there are regular bus services operating in the area and endless taxis dotted about, though it is recommended to agree a price before entering. Most people will speak English and be happy to help, however, some more rural areas will be purely Thai speaking so carrying a translation book may be beneficial.
The ferry routes to neighbouring islands and parts of Thailand are relatively long, taking at least five hours and sometimes lasting up to nine depending on the weather conditions. Due to the lengthy sailings it could be worthwhile taking the earliest possible opportunity to make the crossing.
