How to Spend 3 Days in Krabi
With three days in Krabi, you can wander temples and markets, explore jungles and caves, and chill out on white-sand beaches. There’s even time to try out a few exciting activities, such as climbing, snorkeling, and kayaking. Here’s how to make the most of 72 hours in Krabi.
Day 1: Island hop
Dedicate today to the beautiful islands and beaches off Krabi—with more than 150, you have plenty to choose from. Hire a long-tail boat, speedboat, or yacht to take you to spots such as Railay Beach, Koh Phi Phi, and Koh Lanta—or join a full-day guided island-hopping trip. Swim, snorkel, paddle, and enjoy the beaches, hidden lagoons, and caves. Alternatively, visit traditional fishing villages and local temples.
Later, watch the sun set on the Andaman Sea from the deck of a boat or a high viewpoint, before feasting on barbecue or fresh seafood on the beach. Then, go swimming or stand-up paddleboarding with bioluminescent plankton, a magical way to end your first day in Krabi.
Day 2: Different ways to play
Time for some adventure. Try your hand at rock climbing and go vertical on some of the best limestone in the region at Railay Beach. Learn the basics, or have guides show you the top routes on a half-day, full-day, or multi-day tour. If you prefer the water, spend the day snorkeling, scuba diving, sea kayaking, or white-water rafting. Looking for more thrills? Try an all-terrain vehicle tour, or go ziplining. If you’d rather take it easy, sign up for a Thai cooking class instead.
After a long day of activity, pamper yourself with a massage and spa treatments, or soak your aching muscles in a hot spring.
Day 3: All things Krabi
Spend the day in Krabi exploring the town itself, as well as nearby rivers, mangroves, and jungles. Make the most of your last day on a guided tour—many itineraries include Krabi highlights such as Tiger Cave, the riverside mountains of Kha Nab Nam, and Emerald Pool.
Finally, savor one more sunset before checking out the night market or taking in a cultural performance or cabaret show. Then, wind down your visit with a relaxing drink on the beach—or go big and join a pub crawl for a memorable final night in paradise.
