About Krabi Town
Most foreign visitors to Krabi choose not to stay in Krabi Town itself, and only pass through on their way to Ao Nang, Railay or to nearby Klong Jilad Pier to take a ferry to Koh Phi Phi. Krabi Town is, however, a very pleasant destination in its own right and an enjoyable place to stay for a day or two with plenty of things to see and do. The town also lots of value or money accommodation and places to eat great food.
Unlike Ao Nang or Railay, Krabi Town is not primarily a tourist destination. Krabi Town is somewhere you can experience authentic Thai culture, and the best place to do that is at the town’s many markets. The main market is Maharaj Market which is Southern Thailand’s largest food market. Maharaj Market opens every day from 03:00 until 10:00 and it is well worth going there for breakfast and to wander around and see the colourful fresh produce. There are also several markets which open in the evening. The night time market on the riverfront is a wonderful place to go to eat. There is also a Walking Street Market on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights with plenty of food stalls and a live music stage.
Wat Tham Suea, located 10 km to the north of Krabi Town centre, is another ‘must see’ attraction. This Buddhist temple has two remarkable features. One is its hill top shrine which is only accessible by climbing over 1,200 steep steps. The 30 minute climb is well worth it with great views from the top and wild monkeys which you see as you make your way up the long staircase. The other noteworthy feature of Wat Tham Suea is a series of caves with shrines inside which you need to walk up and down more stairs to see. The temple gets its name, which means ‘Tiger Cave Temple’, from the mark on the wall of one of these caves which looks like the imprint of a tiger’s paw.
