Customer Travel Tip: A day is enough in Krabi town to see everything. It is a small shopping town with a nice temple. The best thing is the walking market of a friday Sat and sun night.

Customer Travel Tip: Know that the tourist attractions aren't in Krabi town. Although you can get nice food/coffee. Good if you want to just chill out.

Liked: The night markets had heaps of different small portioned food options which made it possible to try everything! It was also very cheap.

Disliked: Everything we wanted to do around the area required is to take a boat/taxi. Nothing was within walking distance.

Customer Travel Tip: Don't stay here for more than a night. Try and stay at tonsai, railey or aoy nang

Customer Travel Tip: Use this point as a hub for traveling over to most islands instead of phuket. Far cheaper and equally situated in the thick of it all.

Liked: Everything, it only gets a lesser rating for partying as that is all done on the islands, which are a short trip away. But that's not to say we didn't party!

Disliked: Motorbike taxi going 100km with no hemets, texting the entire journy. But you cannot blame krabi for that.
