Krabi, Phuket

People have diverse understandings of tropical heaven. To me, it’s quite simple. All I want is a peaceful place to chill at, some friendly locals to make friends with, and some mysterious sights/culture to explore, that’s all.

When I arrived Krabi, they told me it was the best season to visit, lucky. In Thailand,  December and January are the peak season of tourism. The weather is good and it won’t be too hot. After that, the long rainy season comes. Not good for tourism, but a favour to farmers.

Compared to Phuket, Krabi is kinda “new”. Thus there are fewer tourists and you will find this place less commercial. But still you can find lots of good resorts in Krabi like Sofitel, Sheraton and Rawi.

About the beach, there are several main beaches in Krabi. Ao Nang beach is popular among tourists, you can chill at the beach for a whole day, watching the long tail boat floating on the crystal clear ocean. Those seafood cravers can also easily get refreshed with those countless beachside restaurants and shops.

Taking 30mins fast-speed boat to Phi Phi island, it’s time to just dive into the sea or to do some snorkelling.

Sounds like Krabi is already a heaven for me, but I still needed to visit Phuket. Why? Because no one should miss the night life in Pa Tong Beach 🙂 Pa Tong is regarded as an old fashion: noisy, crowded…also mysterious. Hearts beat faster than usual under the neon lights, everyone’s face is getting blurred. Grab a beer and watch a pole dance show… good enough! (@Fashionmimo)

    1. Phuket is more developed, so I think if you want to discover more about Thai culture like traditional massage and simon show, Phuket would be better. In Krabi you feel closer to the nature. But transport problem is needed to be concerned 🙂 (p.s there is only about 2 hour drive from Phuket to Krabi)
