Khao Khanap Nam  Regarded as the symbol of Krabi, Khao Khanap Nam are two mountains that are roughly 100 meters tall, separated by Maenam Krabi and located at the entrance to Krabi city. Khao Khanap Nam has beautiful caves with amazing stalactites and stalagmites worth exploring. Besides natural attractions, a large

number of human skeletons have been found here. It is theorized that they are the remains of

people who came and established a home at Kanab Nam, but were cut off by an inundation

and quickly perished. The mountains can be reached by taking a 15-minute long tail boat ride

from Chao Fa Pier. For visitors interested in a more extensive excursion, it is possible to tent

a boat can be rented at 300 Baht per trip to visit Khao Khanap Nam, mangrove forests and

Koh Klang fishing village.


Wat Tham Suea, which literally means tiger cave temple, is located in the Khiriwong Valley amidst lush forests and mountains with large trees over a hundred years old about nine kilometres northeast of Krabi Town. Aside from being the site of a meditation centre, the compound is also a place of archaeological and historical interest as excavations have uncovered stone tools, pottery remains and Buddha footprint crafting moulds. In addition, a cave in the compound has what appears to be tiger paw prints in the stone.


Wat Sai Thai The monastery is Krabi's central temple and a local gathering point during Buddhist events and weddings. The main attraction in the temple is an impressive reclining Buddha image.The monastery is Krabi's central temple and a local gathering point during Buddhist events and weddings.

Mu Koh Poda Situated south of Ao Nang, eight kilometres off shore, Mu Koh Poda is fringed by clear

waters, and offers white sandy beaches, as well as, pristine coral reefs. This is why it is a year  

round attraction and an excellent place for fishing because it is not affected so much by the

monsoon. Mu Koh Poda can be reached within 25 minutes by boat from Ao Nang. Many noteworthy

islands like Koh Thap, Kao Mo, Koh Hua Khwan, and Koh Kai are situated nearby. A beautiful sandy

beach, connecting these islands, is visible at low tide.
