Krabi is the Thailand you see in travel brochures. Large expanses of powdery-white sand fringed by lush green jungle, dramatic limestone formations jutting out from a crystal-clear turquoise sea, traditional fishing villages where time stands still, mountains and mangrove forests waiting to be explored – it’s all here in this southern Thai region.
Krabi has an extremely satisfying blend of untouched tranquility with just enough development to make it comfortable and convenient for visitors. Certain areas, like Ao Nang, are filled with party-minded backpackers, but others like Railay, are idyllic peaceful getaways. And, of course, throughout the whole region, impeccably styled luxury resorts welcome tourists looking for the very best in relaxation and pampering.
In many ways, Krabi has everything a visitor to Thailand could want. But gay Krabi is missing one thing, it does not have is a gay scene. You will probably come across gay guys and couples during your stay, but it will be slightly harder to find them.
However, this should not put you off visiting this stunning and fascinating region. Krabi’s natural wonders make it well worth the detour, while its more remote beaches present the perfect opportunity to relax and get away from the crazy, alcohol-fuelled excesses of other Thai destinations. The world-class gay nightlife of places like Bangkok, Phuket, and Koh Samet will always be there – it’s time to take a break and chill out in Krabi.
