Get adventurous in Krabi, Thailand

Located along Thailand's Andaman Coast, the city of Krabi boasts some of the most spectacular natural formations in the country - karst limestone. These eerie boulders have layers of bedrock molded over the course of thousands of years, and while many travelers are content to bask in the sunlight while leaning against these marble-like formations, some may feel daring enough to throw on a harness and go rock climbing.

If you're looking for an adrenaline kick during a tour of Thailand, you don't necessarily have to do something that's totally out of your comfort zone, but that doesn't mean you can't take hikes around this wonderful region. The peninsula where Krabi is located boasts numerous spots where you can see karst formations, whether or not you decide to climb them.

While many travelers use Krabi as a jumping off point for more tourist-heavy destinations like Ko Lanta, Ko Phi Phi or Tham Phra Nang, those who decide to stay back are treated to secluded beaches that even locals rarely frequent.
