The tropical paradise of Krabi is once again open to the world. Nestled on the eastern shores of the Gulf of Thailand, it is easily accessible from Phuket in under an hour by boat.
With the launch of the Phuket Sandbox 7+7 Extension on August 16, 2021, Krabi’s popular hotspots of Ko Phi Phi, Ko Ngai and Railay are now welcoming fully vaccinated foreign tourists who can visit without the need to quarantine. The extension programme is designed to allow visiting holidaymakers to take in more destinations on their trip to Thailand, and reduces the mandatory stay in Phuket from 14 to 7 days after which they can then explore the natural wonders of beautiful Krabi, Phang-Nga (Khao Lak and Ko Yao), or Surat Thani (Samui, Ko Pha-ngan, and Ko Tao).
The designated locations open to visitors in Krabi – the world-famous island of Ko Phi Phi; the less-discovered yet no less enchanting island of Ko Ngai; and the ever popular Railay – make for an amazing and addictive tropical holiday to cherish.
The silky soft sandy beaches, enchanting tropical landscapes and glistening sea vistas of Krabi are more pristine and breathtaking than ever. All necessary health and safety measures are in place, giving visitors peace of mind to indulge in blissful days spent sunbathing, snorkelling, rock-climbing, and savouring delicious cuisine prepared with the freshest seafood and tropical produce.
Despite her popularity, Railay boasts a tranquil atmosphere, as she is accessible only by boat. This small peninsula is cut off from the mainland by high limestone cliffs, the same cliffs that draw rock-climbers from abroad to scale their impressive heights.
Stretching out below the cliffs are soft sands and a horizon that shimmers in the distance, along with the rhythm of the sea gently stroking the shore.
Ko Phi Phi welcomes one and all with a laidback and enchanting vibe, with long beaches to stroll along, creating the perfect escape from the modern day hustle and bustle.
Ko Ngai boasts her own set of charms, thanks to her long beaches, idyllic setting and jungle-clad hills. Few would disagree that days spent on Ko Ngai are simply sublime.
The months of November to February make the best season to visit Thailand’s Andaman Coast destinations, when the temperature is warm, the skies are clear and there’s little rain.
