If you are looking for suggestions on what to do in Krabi Town, the following is a list of some of the sights and activities that are available there. Despite the fact that the town itself does not have much to offer, at least not in contrast to other areas of the province, it is the home of two of the region’s most popular tourist spots.
After the pandemic, Krabi Town has taken on an ambiance that is even more quintessentially Thai, with a robust flavour that is distinctively local. It’s conceivable that this is why there aren’t a lot of tourists that decide to stay in Krabi Town, but it’s definitely worth considering. The vast majority of tourists choose to “set up shop” at Ao Nang as their “base camp,” and then go out from there to see the various attractions that Krabi has to offer.
Visit to Tiger Cave
Wat Tham Sua, also referred to as the Tiger Cave, is a temple that is located around three kilometres outside of Krabi Town. Because the limestone within the cave has the impressions of tigers, it is known in Spanish as Cueva del Tigre, which literally translates to “Cave of the Tiger.”
This place is noteworthy not just from an archaeological and historical point of view, but also from the standpoint of being appealing to tourists.
At the very top of the mountain is where you’ll find the golden Buddha statue, as well as the Buddhist temple. You are going to have to make your way up what feels like an endless number of steps that wound their way through the forest in order to get to them if you want to pay them a visit. Make sure you don’t forget to carry the bottle of water with you! As can be seen, the whole competition consists of 1272 stages.
Naturally, your hard work will not go unrewarded, as the site will present you with stunning views of Krabi and the Andaman Sea in every direction you look.

The Emerald Pool
The so-called Emerald Pool may also be found in the Khao Par-Bang Khra region designated as a protected natural area. Sa Morakot is another name for this pool. There is a natural pool in the middle of the forest that has an emerald colour to it, which is where the pool gets its name from.
It is one of the most well-known sites in all of Krabi Town, and the vast majority of visitors include it on their itineraries when they are in Krabi as something to do and see while they are there.
To gain entry, a price of 200 baht is necessary; in addition, an extra 30 baht is required to park the motorbike, and an additional 10 baht is required to use the bathroom. A vacation here won’t put a serious dent on your savings.
