First things first. If you are planning to visit Krabi and intend to use your precious smartphone for photography, get a waterproof cover first. This is water world through and through and you are likely to spend a large part of your holiday under, over and around mesmerising aquamarine seas.

Krabi falls in the west coast of Southern Thailand on the Andaman Sea. Dotted with several islands, including the famous Koh Lanta and Koh Phi Phi, the rock faces dotted across the sea, give Krabi a beautiful, yet mysterious air.
Flights to Bangkok are from every major metro in India. We flew from Bangalore to Bangkok, from where we boarded our hour long connecting flight to Krabi. Thailand offers a visa on arrival to Indians. If you are opting for it and have a connecting flight to Krabi without a long gap in between, keep your photograph and 1000 baths handy, as the lines could get long and crowded.
