To Krabi Ferry and To Krabi Speedboat

Speedboat & Ferry travel to and from Krabi Town is a nice experience. Klong Jilad ferry terminal is located about 5 minutes taxi ride from the famous Thara Park and river walkway. Beautifully maintained by the local provincial Government, you'll find the boarding process easy enough, leaving you to enjoy the journey. Ferry travel between Krabi Town and Phuket or Phi Phi Island in well maintained, big passenger ferries that can hold up to 400 passengers, complete with life jackets and full safety precautions. The speedboat & ferry companies partnering with us at are familiar with our e-tickets and your boarding process will be a smooth one. They'll simply take your e-ticket, replace it with a destination sticker for you to wear, and guide you to your boat. On the speedboat & ferry, you'll have some different seating options - on deck or down inside in the comfy seats, just bring a book, some binoculars and your travel journal, because you're about to embark on an epic voyage to amazing places!

Krabi Town Overview

Krabi Town is a wonderful little town of about 25,000 citizens, situated a little upstream from the Andaman coastline. The town is nice and cultural, with a relaxed local feel, certainly a pleasant stop for travellers looking for a nice place to shop and eat outside. To add to the Krabi Town flavour, keep a look out for the ape statues holding the traffic lights. Markets are aplenty, hosting cultural craft work that you can pick up cheaply. And, being on the river, there's lots of fish and seafood to eat!

Krabi Shopping Culture

Shopping Culture
Situated away from the tourist-rich beach areas, Krabi Town is a nice, locally priced shopping district. Food and drink prices are cheaper and just as extensive - perhaps more so. On weekends, there is a really cool "Walking Street" market from around 5pm-10pm where you can pick up some local art and craft items, again reasonably priced. A couple of big hypermarkets in the town ensure that you can get your groceries and gadgets before hopping to other isles.

Krabi Eating Out

Eating Out
A rich mix of elegant and authentically Thai restaurants and eating spots pepper the streets of Krabi Town. Of course, the local day and night markets provide lots of Thai snacks and tasty seafood dishes - the seafood is as fresh here as by the beaches. Daytimes, there is no end of small restaurants from recognisable brands to one-man noodle stands. When the evening comes the choices exponentially rises, especially around the night markets… Cheap, authentic, delicious!

Krabi Khao Khanab

Khao Khanab
The Khao Khanab mountains, standing at a hundred meters tall are one of Krabi's most famous landmarks. They're like a great gateway to the city with the main river running straight through the middle of these wonderful limestone cliffs. It's possible to journey through the stalactite and stalacmite rich caves via kayak or tour guide via a stairway, and one of the mountains can even be climbed. While there, why not check out the local Ko Klang fishing village, where you'll find local tools and artefacts being hand crafted daily.

Krabi River Walking

River Walking
It's a nice way to spend a sunny afternoon, walking along the wide footpath that runs south from Chao Fa Pier to Thara Park. Along the way you can pick up some tasty snacks and Thai fruit to accompany your journey. Delightful interconnected walking trails give you heaps of options. You can keep fit by jogging around and playing a little tennis, embrace the peace by watching the boats go by or reading a book, or you can have a little fun with the Thai alphabet in the children's park.
