I'm finally done with college and I decided to take a break for a few days in Krabi, Thailand! I got to explore quite a few places in Krabi that was honestly quite an eye opener. Here's a list of places I think would be great for any young/young at heart travellers to visit!
1. Take a stroll along Ao Nang Beach...
Personally, I think that Ao Nang Beach is more of a jetty where boats pick travellers up to travel to the nearby islands. I don't think it's a safe place to swim in because of the number of incoming boats. It is however, a beautiful place to sit and watch the sunset. Aside from that, there is a whole stretch of food, drinks and souvenir stores across the beach. Grab a cocktail, beer and some snacks while you sit back and relax.
2. Take a long tail boat to Phra Nang Cave Beach.
Take a long tail boat at 200 Baht per person (two way) to Phra Nang Cave Beach, one of Railay's Peninsula Beaches. A breathtaking view of nearby islands across the Andaman Sea with crystal clear water. There are floating hawkers on long tail boats parked across the far end of the beach for refreshments. Not to mention, kayaking and rock climbing is available as well! Besides being able to enjoy the sun and sea, the Phra Nang Cave is also an amazing site to explore. A beautiful shrine is set up for the princess/goddess named Phra Nang who is said to offer safe travels and fertility. Offerings such as Lingams are offered to the princess/goddess of the cave for such purpose.
3. Watch the cabaret show at Blue Dragon Cabaret!
It was my first time watching a cabaret show and I must say, it was quite entertaining! 500 Baht per pax inclusive of a mineral water was considered on par with the performance they gave us. The lady boys were beautiful, costumes were lavish and full of feathers. Something I'd recommend first timers!
4. Enjoy a kinky night at Nova Club!
One of the strip club's in Centerpoint Ao Nang, a well know place filled with bars and clubs of the dodgiest yet exciting kind. Nova Club is one of the more well known strip clubs we decided to explore. The fun only starts after 12 midnight so make sure you come at the right time! Drinks are cheap but beware, some of the girls demand payment for company or might even pressure you into buying a whole load of drinks you can't finish.
Other strip clubs to recommend: Sabina Bar & Pub (right across Nova Club in Centerpoint, Ao Nang)
These were by far my favourite places in Krabi but don't forget to check out my vlog for a more extensive view of Krabi!
