Krabi & Ko Lanta
Famed for its strikingly rugged karst coastline Krabi is what many people imagine the picture perfect Thai beach escape to be. It is easily accessible from Bangkok or other Asian hubs thanks to its own airport and is well placed for exploring beautiful Phang Nga Bay. Whether you choose to stay in lively Ao Nang with its pretty beach and profusion of restaurants, cafes and bars or escape to some of the extremely picturesque and quieter beaches to the north, Krabi’s allure and variety means there is something for everyone here.
Getting to Ko Lanta takes a little more time than some other Thai beach spots because there is no airport on the island. You start your journey from Krabi and are driven south to Baan Hua Hin Pier where a scenic boat trip takes you out to the island. The extra effort is well worth it as you are rewarded with a pristine island hideaway offering a traditional, quiet Thai feel making it one of the country’s most desirable destinations. Why not enjoy it from your private pool villa at the Pimalai, or the adult only Layana, both luxury resorts.
