krabi Vs Phi Phi

by longlast

We're heading to Krabi for only about a week in April and want to know if it is worthwhile taking time out of our short stay in krabi to head to phi phi for a night or two. Is just a day trip there feasible/worthwhile?

We want to experience the people and lifestyle of southern thailand and want to know whether krabi or phi phi will offer us that... i guess we want to know is phi phi just a place to hang out with other tourists and see tourist-generated 'activities' eg thai boxing etc or are they real events among real villagers.

Ko Phi Phi is a HEAVILY touristed area BUT with good reason: the islands are beautiful with decent diving and snorkelling. Well worth a day on one of those longtail boats island hoping. Not much culture but beautiful area.

Both Krabi and Phi Phi are occupied by tourists, however as Krabi is not an island, then you see the cahnce to see locals at their daily routines on the streets, at the markets etc. - but honestly this part of Krabi is not much attracting. Local lifestyle heavily influenced by tourist business with all consequneces of taking over guest's habits in behaviour, dress and way how they furtnish their homes.

Just came back from both Krabi and Phi phi. Ao Nang beach is the main area in Krabi for restaurants, shops etc. Its touristy but a little quiter than Patong in Phuket. Ao Nang is good for one night only I feel. Phi phi is definitely worth going just for the coral waters and a restaurant called 'Lemongrass' in the main village. I think i would prefer to actually stay on the island and not Krabi.
Speed boats leave from all over the place to do day trips to Phi Phi if you only want to go for a day.

Yes, Phi Phi is worth staying at least a night or two. The atmosphere there is different from AoNang. It has the small island paradise feel to it. There are plenty of accomodations and bars on PhiPhi Island itself. There is a viewpoint that you can hike up to. There are day trips you can go around PhiPhi Don & Phiphi lei.

Krabi is good too. I would recommend you to stay away from AoNang and stay on West Railay. On West Railay, you can take swim at the nice beach, do rock climbing, and join snorkeling day trip to the islands around Krabi.

If you want to see southern Thailand lifestyle, I am not sure if Krabi is the place to be... anyway, whatever you decide, I hope you have a great time in Krabi and Phi Phi.

one cant compare krabi and phi phi although they both are jewels in the andamans.

krabi - feels like a town connected to main land, people come and go and the beach are a classic to its own right.

phi phi - now, that's a little corner or paradise or i would say ''as close as one can get to its gates'''. april is a nice time - hot! and the sun will be out, you wouldn't need cleaning lenses, the water is a see through glass...enjoy...

Travel Tips for Krabi

You're gonna wear out your camera

by papajoeb

bring some cloths that you don't mind destroying cuz the mud that will get on you if you go hiking is that red kind that doesnt come out. I got stung by jelly fish here while night swimming so now i recommend bringing jelly fish medicine to everyone! Trust me, it's not a really fun experience, at first it really burns and then it REALLY ITCHES! bring a tonne of film, i mean like lots, this place is mind blowing

I have travelled to Krabi from Bankok two times and once to Bangkok, and I think it is the best way to go, if you have the extra cash. I have gone on Thai Airways twice and only once with Airasia. I prefer Thai over Airasia myself but the price is only a few hundred baht difference.
The trip from Bangkok takes only about 1 hour and 20 minutes and costs around 2400-2800 bht. I like this option much better then the 13 hour bus ride that you can take instead.

Cocktails in a Cave

by GracesTrips about The Grotto

Prior to dinner at Krua Phranang, we arrived early to have a cocktail at The Grotto at the Rayavadee Resort. An outdoor bar with tables and chairs set in the sand at the entrance of a cave. The view of the sun setting isn't quite that good from here because you have this gigantic land mass in your way. But, the view of the beach is still beautiful nonetheless. The Grotto closes early at around 8pm. They do serve food but nothing extensive.

Dimond Cave (Diamond Cave)

by GracesTrips

We had no clue where this was but figured it can't be too hard to find. If you ask around, someone is bound to know. Apparently, there are supposed to be lights inside so you can see but they were not on when we went. We went back over to a a rock climbing rental place and asked if we could rent a flashlight. He said he had flashlights but not for rent. So, I asked if we could buy one. He said no. Hmmm, not for rent and not for sale...very odd! He asked why we needed one and proceeded to let us borrow it. I believe the rock climbing rental place provided tours that included the gear. Therefore, one price for the package and that's why the flashlights were not for rent or sale. Anyhow, this cave isn't really all that big. It is impressive to see. Watch your step - there are rounded wood planks to walk on and it's rather easy to trip on them. Please see my travelogue for photos of Diamond Cave. The photos posted here should help you find it.

Rai Leh West beach

by clouds111

A short longtail ride from Ao Nang takes you Rai Leh West beach which is much nicer than Ao Nang. The sand is whiter and softer and it's not so over crowded and the sea is calm and warm. There are a few small hotels and cheap accomodation dotted around but nothing imposing. There isn't much shade on beach unless you get there early and position yourself right at the back under a small tree.

Rai Leh is primarily a rock climbing haven with the domineering Taiwand Wall overlooking the beach. Sitting on the beach you see the brave souls marching up the beach to make their treacherous climb. But I was quite content to see them go by and then watch them start their climb up.

From here you can reach Ton Sai beach either by longtail or you can climb over the rocks although it can be quite tricky. You can also walk to Rai Leh East which is about a 15/20 minute walk along a path.

There main path leading away from the beach (right in the middle) takes you to a few shops, diving/climbing centre, cafe and public toilets.

A longtail from Ao Nang takes about 10 mins and costs around 250 bahts each (depending on the season). They do however wait until there are at least 8 people waiting for the longtail before they head off, but you never have to wait long.
