We are embarking on a month long trip to Thailand in January and are basing ourselves around Krabi, Phang Nga and Takua Pa. Leg two of the trip sees us visiting Krabi and I can’t wait. We briefly stopped at Railay Beach West several years ago on a Phang Nga Bay Tour and saw the incredible lime stone cliffs. However it was over too quickly and now I have a whole list of the top sights to see in Krabi when we return.

Where to Stay In Krabi?
With so many beach hotel options available it was beginning to be a little overwhelming. Then Mr C stumbled upon something slightly different but still in the main area. A hotel which not only has an infinity pool with the dramatic limestone cliffs as the backdrop, but wooden cottages built around a lagoon! Where is this? Ban Sainai Resort just up the hill from Ao Nang Beach. I cannot wait to stay here and will write a review of our experience staying in one of the lagoon bungalows.

Do I have Time To Visit all of the Top Sights to see In Krabi?
We are here for five nights in total and as long as we can hire a scooter reasonably quickly I am confident we can get to see most of the top sights to see in Krabi. Thankfully the last two weeks of our trip will be spent at beach resorts as we will probably in need of a holiday after the busy schedule I have planned for the first two!
