Krabi has four national parks to enjoy. The Khao Sok is a rainforest habitat with a large variety of birds and animals, and is a popular for day trippers and campers. Than Bokkhorani features natural springs, limestone cliffs, and a lot of (real) monkey play. Pa Tung Tieo is south of Krabi and is a lowland rainforest. The last national park's name is probably longer than the park is wide: Hat Nopharat Thara-Mu Ko Phi Phi. Forget trying to say it, just visit the beaches and beauty it encompasses. Many parts of this park are only accessible by boat, so hire a guide and sail away.

The waters of Krabi's coastline offer some excellent oppotunities for deep diving or shallow snorkeling among coral reefs. Deep sea fishing may turn up sailfish, tuna, mackerel, or mahi mahi. Tour the areas many islands (some of them deserted) on a guided tour, or rent a sea kayak and head out on your own adventure. Rock climbing on Krabi's limestone cliffs draws climbers from all over.


The Wat Khlong Thom Museum, on Phetchakasem Highway, displays artifacts excavated from a bead mound: stone tools, stone and clay animals, bronze tools, and beads. With all the limestone on the island, there's got to be fossils, right? Right. Found within the confines of Hat Nopharat National Park, is Fossil Cemetery and nearby Fossil Museum, displays fossils and telling the history of the area.
