The main feature of the town is riverside area which features the very pleasant Chaofah Park.

The other interesting feature of Krabi Town is its markets.

Wat Tham Suea
Also known as Tiger Cave Temple, What Tham Suea is located a few kilometres to the north of Krabi Town. Wat Tham Suea is probably the most popular tourist attraction in mainland Krabi Province. The temple features a hill top temple that you need to climb 1,260 steep steps to reach, and at ground level a series of caves from which the temple gets its name. Entry to the temple is free.
Krabi Town itself has no swimming beach, and for this reason the small town of Ao Nang is a much more popular tourist destination. Ao Nang Beach is narrow and 1.4 km long. The beach has white sand and is good for swimming from October through to the April each year. The town behind the beach has developed to accommodate mass tourism, and it has as wide a range of restaurants and accommodation types as you might find in a popular European beach destinations such as Benidorm.
Koh Phi Phi
Koh Phi Phi is Krabi Province’s most lively island. The island’s main town, Tonsai Village, can be reached by ferry from the mainland pier of Klong Jilard Pier in 2 hours, and by shared speedboat in 1 hour. Lots of bars, restaurants and hotels are packed into a very small area in Tonsai Village and this is the place to come to for nightlife, but not a quiet night’s sleep. Some visitors will want to continue on quickly along the coast to the more relaxed island of Koh Lanta, an hour to South of Koh Phi Phi by ferry.
