High season in Krabi, Thailand to be record-breaking as new flights and accommodations abound Krabi, Thailand’s popularity has grown so much in the past few years that pundits are predicting this year’s high season (November-April) will be record-breaking. As a result, airline companies and the hospitality industries are ramping up their offers.
Krabi, Thailand, October 13, 2014 — For years, Phuket, Thailand was the darling of tourism on the western shores of the Andaman Sea. Because of too much growth too fast, it became unpleasantly over-crowded and hectic. Krabi was the perfect alternative, with its white sandy beaches, crystal-clear water, fewer crowds, plentiful activities and extraordinary attractions.
A Relaxing and Refreshing Vacation Destination
Krabi Province, located on the southwest mainland coast of Thailand on the Andaman Sea is comprised of several districts. Archaeological evidence shows humans inhabited the area 25,000-30,000 years ago. Its colorful history includes pirates, merchants and sea gypsies.
Visitors looking for a secluded beach have no trouble locating one on from the approximately 132 inhabited and uninhabited islands. Tourists can participate in a number of water-related activities, including kayaking, canoeing, scuba diving, shipwreck diving, sea cave exploration and fishing. The coral reefs are beautiful, and the sea is filled with exotic marine life.
The numerous and towering limestone cliffs draw rock climbers from around the world, with different levels of difficulty available, including climbs for beginners. Attractions include wildlife sanctuaries, natural hot springs, national parks, Buddhist shrines and temples, kickboxing matches, snake handling, shopping and more.
Travelers’ Demand Equals Additional Airline Routes
Before Krabi began to grow in popularity, most of the tourists came from Scandinavian countries and Europe. With positive economic changes in Asia, many travelers started coming from Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore and China, yet flights were few and far between. Recently, however, the airline industry has responded with a host of new routes and flights to Krabi.
In addition to their flights from Singapore and Bangkok that began last year, AirAsia just introduced a new round-trip route that flies between Guangzhou, on mainland China, and Krabi.
Malaysian Airlines, Bangkok Airways, and Tiger Airways have all increased the number of flights to and from Krabi, while the number of charter flights from Europe, Russia and Australia is also growing.
Krabi Nakharin Hospital, Krabi’s New First-Rate Medical Facility
Those travelers who fear that there are no advanced care medical facilities in Krabi can now rest easy. Krabi Nakharin is Krabi’s newly opened advanced-care hospital, rivaling the sterling reputation of the medical facilities in Bangkok. Knowing top-notch medical care is locally available is of great importance to older retirees and those planning extended vacations in Krabi.
The Growing Krabi Hospitality Industry
Just as there has been a need for additional airline flights to Krabi, there has been a need for more accommodations to house the growing number of visitors. With a lot of new construction, the hospitality industry has grown to be able to accommodate all the travelers coming to Krabi.
There are many different types of accommodations from which to choose: hostels, guesthouses, budget inns and hotels, boutique resorts, bed and breakfasts, and private villas. Big hotel consortiums, like the Ibis Styles Hotel with its newly opened 206-room facility, are coming to Krabi.

The outdoors complements the beauty of the interior, with a private saltwater swimming pool surrounded by a deck that leads down to the landscaped gardens and the beach.
