Family holidays in Krabi

Krabi is perfectly safe – and fun – for even the smallest children
A beach holiday in a destination like Krabi makes for an ideal family getaway. There is a large selection of family accommodation, particularly in Koh Lanta; Ao Nang, Phi Phi and Klong Muang are starting to catch up. In general, children are well-catered for here; they are welcome in all restaurants, and younger ones will be cooed over wherever you go.

When booking a hotel in Krabi, you can check if facilities like baby cots and high chairs are available – most places 3 star and above will have them. Most hotels will offer a shallow children’s area in their main swimming pool, some larger hotels also have playgrounds, children’s clubs and babysitting services.

If you prefer to venture out of the hotel, nature is on your doorstep in Krabi, so there are plenty of outdoor activities to do, including cool stuff for older kids like kayaking and rock-climbing. Another plus is that, unlike most other tourist areas in Thailand, there are no red light zones to explain to curious youngsters – Krabi is a very safe and family-friendly destination.
