Family Accommodation - Krabi

by CL1706

Hi VTers,

Wondering if anyone can recommend a few Krabi hotels / resorts which are suitable for a family (2 adults, children are 11, 10, 7).

Looking for things like family suites, kids club, activities.

Any other recommendations (even if you want to recommend another part of Thailand) will be happily accepted.

Thanks for reading.

Recently revisited and spent a week in the Krabi area. It seems the most popular destinations remain the island of Ko Phi Phi and Ao Nang on the mainland BUT if you're looking for a beach resort area that's easily accessible and NOT overrunned (at least not this time of the year compared to peak seaon which is late Nov. to late Feb.), then I'd recommend focusing on East Railay/Rai Leh (or any other number of spelling combinations). Or if you're a slumdog millionaire, you could also stay at the nearby Rayarvardee which serves the life styles of the rich and famous with it's not so exclusive beach (tons of daytripping visitors invade the beach!). Or, if you're seeking an even more laid back atmosphere, ther's Ko Jum and Ko Lanta. Overall, the West Railey beach 'resorts' offer white sand scenic beaches but you're going to pay more for meals since these resorts are a bit more upscale. than the East Rai Leh side. You'll really need to do a daytrip for decent snorkelling but you can also hire kayaks right off the beach.

I'm not sure what part of Krabi you are wanting info on. We stayed in Railay. I don't think that would be too fun for the kids if they get tired of going to the beach. There was a very nice Sheraton in Ao Nang. They might have activities/facilities for the kids there. You stay in cottages in Railay. Definitely, pay for an air conditioned room if you stay in a cottage. At least go to Ao Nang to ride the elephants! Realize there are no medical facilities in Railay. You would have to go to Ao Nang (I was told) for medical attention.

Anyway, I've only been once and not too familiar with other popular places like Phuket, Pattaya or Ko Samui. I've posted quite a few pics and tip for Krabi, in particular where we stayed in Railay.

Travel Tips for Krabi

A Karst of Thousands!

by M0B1US

The coastal waters of southern Thailand are world reknowned for the karsts that pepper the landscape and have featured in many famous movies, including most famously James Bond’s "The Man with the Golden Gun", hence James Bond Island in Ao Phang-Nga bay. These dramatic spires of limestone rise from the waters edge and valley floors almost vertically to heights in excess of 900 metres and provide excellent conditions for rock climbers and cavers. They also offer a fantastic backdrop for the less adventurous, often providing a stunning backdrop to some of the area's best beaches.

Following is an excerpt about Thai Karsts:

'These limestone karsts were formed 260 million years ago when a shallow sea, running the entire length of south Asia, slowly built up deep deposits of coral and shells which were later buried under sediments deposited from inland.

These remains formed limestone and this was thrust up above the surface when the Indian subcontinent collided with mainland Asia some 30 million years ago. From Gualin in China, to Sarawak in Borneo, the limestone created craggy islands on land and in water. In the South of Thailand, the provinces of Surat Thani, Phang Nga, Krabi and Trang have the most spectacular examples of this type of scenery.

Limestone is extremely porous and so water can easily erode it through rain or wave action, which makes for some spectacular caves (Thai "tham", although sea chambers may be referred to with the same word as a room - a "hong"). When the roofs of islands or other coastal caves collapse, the prized, blissfully private beach and secret garden of an island "doughnut" may be created. Caves are also associated with bats and in Thailand with swiftlets that make the edible birds nests.' There is something truly magical about sailing between these monolitic remains of living creatures from millions of years ago...

Sea kayaking

by Gard

We joined an organized tour and the first stop on our tour was a sea kayaking session. We were picked up at the hotel at about 8 am and first we had to drive quite a while to get from Ao Nang to the Phang Nga bay (about 1 ½ hours from Ao Nang). When we got there we got on board in a long tail boat and we went out to a place to go paddling. The Phang Nga area is pretty spectacular because stack of limestone stick out of the water everywhere. And when we went paddling we really got close. We even went into one of these stacks and it was beautiful.

Beers on the Water!

by M0B1US about Krabi Riverboat Cafe

This is a great place to hang out and watch the world go by in the form of longtail boats plying their way up and down Krabi river and watching local fishermen wading along the opposite bank checking their nets for the day's catch.

We stopped off here a couple times to sample the local beer (Chang, Leos and Singha) which ran to about 70B for a double size bottle, waiting for ferries, writing postcards and reading the paper.

The staff are friendly and the place is quiet during the day, getting busier at night time when people start returning from the outlying beaches for the nightly barbeque here. We didn't actually stay here for food, but it seemed like fairly average Thai food at average tourist prices - we opted for the much cheaper night markets nearby.

Rock Climbing in Railay, Krabi, Thailand

by Paul_the_Seeker

Railay is a rock-climbing mecca of Southeast Asia. Rock climbers made this area popular, and now it is a hit among other tourists as well. This has spurred lots of development (not good), which is mostly old, hut-style places being replaced by fancy, upscale bungalows. Inflation here is among the highest in Thailand, but it is still relatively cheap compared to most western countries. As for the scenery, all around are shear limestone cliffs with over 500 bolted routes. If you have never climbed before, no problem; most climbers here are experiencing their first climbs. There are a half-dozen climbing shops with experienced guides who lead groups usually no larger than four (the two times I've been, there were just two of us). You can rent gear here, or bring your own and climb to your heart's content. You can also hire boats for trips to several nearby islands.

For much more info including climbing shops, check out this site: www.simonfoley.com

Ao Tham Phra Nang

by AndreSTGT

The most beautiful beach on the peninsula is definitely a strong competitor for the most beautiful beach in the world. Brilliant white sand and blue water framed by amazing limestone formations with a 'James Bond-style island' offshore. There is only one (harmonious and beautiful) luxury resort on the beach, the rest is pure nature and open to everybody.
You can get there either on foot from Raileh East or by longtail boat from Ao Nang or Raileh West.
