Krabi, Thailand is known for its stunning scenery and long stretches of pristine beaches. This small province located at the southern tip of Thailand has more than 200 offshore islands. This makes it the perfect holiday destination for those looking for the ultimate relaxation experience.

If you’re planning an exotic holiday with your family, Krabi also provides an endless list of exciting activities for your children. Its white-sand beaches and crystal clear waters are perfect for a fun day of swimming and snorkeling. It also shelters a dense tropical rainforest that your whole family can explore.

To help you plot your itinerary, we rounded up the best kid-friendly activities you can do while in this side of Thailand. Here are our top five:

 

1. Go Island Hopping

Krabi is surrounded by hundreds of small islands, including the famous Phi Phi islands. From the mainland, you can hop on a boat and go around nearby islets for a day of fun. The kids will have a blast playing on the beach while you can relax, sunbathe, or read a book. The turquoise waters here are so clear you can see fishes as you swim. If you want something more exciting or have older children, consider going farther out from shore to snorkel.

 

2. Visit an Elephant Sanctuary

Just 15 minutes from AoNang, you can find the Krabi Elephant Sanctuary. It’s an ethically-operated camp for rescued, overtired elephants that are given a chance to spend their days in their natural habitat. It’s an awe-inspiring experience to see these majestic creatures up close, and your kids could learn valuable lessons on caring for nature.

Here, you can feed and bathe these gentle giants and even walk with them on a leisurely trek. They’ll lead you to the foothills of “Karst Mountains,” where you can admire Krabi’s rich and raw beauty.

 

3. Explore the Shell Cemetery

Halfway between Ao Nang and Krabi lies an ancient fossil site known as the Shell Cemetery. From afar, the area looks like a pile of broken concrete blocks. A closer look, however, reveals Thailand’s fascinating history. Your little Indiana Jones will have a blast discovering tiny fossils of snails, jellyfish, and other sea creatures from millions of years ago. It’s a fun way to inject education during your vacation!

 

4. Get Active at Krabi Fun Park

Krabi Fun Park is an amusement attraction set within a rainforest. There are thrilling aerial games for all ages, including rope bridges, swings, tight rope walk, and gigantic zip lines that go from several trees. The park is divided into four areas: easiest, easy, medium, and hard. Young children can opt for the first two levels while older teens can try the harder ones.

 

5. Take a Dip in the Emerald Pool

The Emerald Pool is a natural jacuzzi set in the hot springs of Klong Thom. The water comes from beneath the ground, heated by Krabi’s volcanic chambers. The pool contains natural minerals and is known to cure chronic illnesses such as rheumatism, sciatica, and skin ailments.

Whether you’re young or young-at-heart, Krabi has something to offer to all visitors. If you’re traveling to this part of Thailand, take the whole family and have a memorable adventure!
