Krabi, Thailand

Krabi, a Thai province made up mostly of islands and archipelagos, is a popular destination for different types of tourists. Beach-lovers, scuba-divers, rock climbing enthusiasts and people who are interested in jungle treks all flock to these easily accessible islands.

Limestone cliffs, idyllic beaches and warm waters certainly make this an attractive region of Southeast Asia for kayakers as well. Mangrove forests, sea caves and hidden lagoons are best appreciated as part of a paddling excursion. Tours cover various parts of the province, though most can be booked in the main tourist center of Ao Nang.
