1. Nong Thale Lake
If you’re ever in Krabi, you have to see the sunrise at Nong Thale Lake. It will make you go WOW! My wife and I took wedding photos here in April when the red flowers fall from the trees.
2. Khao Ngon Nak
If you want to see Krabi’s stunning landscape from above, Khao Ngon Nak is the place. You just have to be ready to hike two hours trough steep jungle terrain to reach the peak 565 meters above sea level. It’s worth it! Read more.
3. Phra Nang Beach (Railay Bay)
Phra Nang Beach was once voted one of the ten most beautiful beaches in the world. It’s not hard to understand why.

6. Khao Khanab Nam (Krabi Town)
Khao Khanab Nam is one of the most famous landmarks in Krabi. The Krabi River separates the two stunning limestone mountains and acts as the gateway into Krabi Town. Take the photo standing next to the giant crab sculpture – another popular landmark.
7. Phi-Phi Viewpoint (Koh Phi Phi Don)
The Phi-Phi Islands are one of the most beautiful islands in Thailand. The stunning viewpoint on Phi Phi Don is a must-see.
8. Railay Beach
Railay is a small peninsula just around the corner of Ao Nang. Accessible only by boat, this slice of paradise with high limestone cliffs attract rock climbers from all over the world.
9. The lighthouse at Koh Lanta
Belonging to Mu Koh Lanta National Park, Cape Tanod is located at Koh Lanta Yai’s southern tip offering two beaches: one with beautiful white sand and one full of rocks. Visitors come here to see the lighthouse — the symbol of Koh Lanta.
10. Poda Island
The postcards you have seen of longtail boats moored off a white sand beach in the crystal clear waters were probably photographed here. Poda Island is one of Krabi’s main tourist attractions.
11. Wat Kaeo Korawaram (The White Temple)
Yeah, I know this was a top-10 list. But when you’re in Krabi Town taking photos of #6, don’t miss to visit the white temple in the center of the town.
