Do you want to propose to your special someone? Are you a couple on a honeymoon? Or are you simply looking for some alone time with your significant other? No matter the reasons for your romantic plans, one of the best things you can do—especially if you’ve wanted to go on a dream tropical holiday for the longest time—is to book a Krabi tour package.
That’s right! One of the best places for holidaying couples is Krabi province, which sits on the west coast of Thailand. It looks straight out of a postcard, with majestic limestone cliffs, plenty of beautiful islands with gorgeous beaches, and a rich natural ecosystem. There are a lot of romantic things to do here, especially if you’re the kind of couple who loves nature. Here are just a few examples.
Go on a Sunset Cruise
If you want full-on romance, nothing can be more romantic than cruising the crystal clear waters with the glorious colours of the sunset in the background. You can usually go two ways with your cruise: you can either go on a cruise on a traditional longtail boat or a modern luxury yacht. If you choose the longtail boat, you’re going to include a stop at a couple of dive spots where you can snorkel or dive and see the gorgeous marine life. If you choose the yacht, you’re going to have a late lunch or early dinner on board and also get the chance to jump in the waters. Of course, sunset cruises in Krabi will always take you past other destinations, like Koh Gai or Chicken Island.
Have a Unique Dinner
Romantic candle-lit lit dinners are a staple. If you want to kick it up a notch, though, go to Rayavadee, Phranang Beach and dine at The Grotto. Not only will you have a breathtaking taking view, you’ll also be dining in a cave (more like a deep alcove) tucked into a limestone cliff. Unique, luxurious, and definitely uber-romantic, especially if you time it with the sunset. Do take note that the rates are more expensive than usual, so make sure to prepare a bigger budget. Still, anything for the love of your life, right?
Get a Couple’s Massage
Some might think that getting a massage isn’t really a romantic activity for couples. However, it’s utterly relaxing. It’s also incredibly intimate. Besides, you haven’t really had a Thailand vacation if you haven’t tried traditional Thai massage. It’s one of the best feelings, getting your muscles relaxed and your body rejuvenated. When in Krabi, getting a Thai massage means staying in carefully crafted indoor sanctuaries, landscaped outdoor gardens, or even beachside villas. Choose your preferred venue and prepare to be pampered from head to toe for 2 hours. Some of the most popular spa centres in Krabi include Kantawan Spa in Krabi Town, WareeRaksa near Khlong Thom, and Aonang Haven, Attarak, and Boossabakorn all in Ao Nang.
Enjoy Krabi’s Beaches
Going to Krabi means going to the beaches. That’s a given. Some of the best places to go is Railay Beach, with its world-famous limestone cliffs and blue waters. Take a dip in the sea, stroll on the fine sand, or simply lay down a beach towel and sunbathe. If you want a bit more of that paradise island feel, with movie-esque sands and waters, go to Phi Phi Islands, arguably the superstar of any Krabi island hopping tour. Finally, if you’re looking for a laid-back beach during the day and a vibrant atmosphere at night, go to Ao Nang. It’s not the most picturesque, but it’s definitely more relaxed. You can easily spend a lazy afternoon here, just swimming and sunbathing. And if you’re looking for some quality alone time with your special someone, it will certainly fit the bill.
Bathe in Natural Springs
Is your idea of a romantic time as simple as just relaxing and forgetting your worries? Then you’ve come to the right place. Krabi is home to some of the best natural springs where you can take a dip and feel your stress just slip away. They also come with the bonus of gorgeous scenery! One of the most popular natural springs in Krabi is Emerald Pool in the Khao Nor Juji Forest, part of the ThungTeao Forest Natural Park. It’s a mesmerising pool of cool water with a brilliant green colour that will certainly make you feel rejuvenated. If you prefer hot springs, head on over to Khlong Thom Hot Springs. The waters are heated by volcanic chambers below, and are claimed to have natural healing properties. There’s no scientific proof, of course, but simply taking a dip in the warm waters and being surrounded by nature will surely do wonders to ease your stress.
Are you ready to spend more time with your significant other? Krabi is waiting for you!
