Charter a long boat from one of the guys down by the harbour in Krabi town. Barter a good deal. 3 of us paid 400baht each(£6) for a full day going to about 3/4 islands and stopping at 2 of them. Most go to Poda and Chicken island. Take a snorkel for some good snorkelling.

The beaches - go to Railie to the great beaches in the area. Also to Ao Phra Nang, one of Thailands best beaches. At the beaches there a few cafes to chill at, plus diving, and also loads of rock climbers.

Wat Tham Seua - Tiger cave temple as its known is about 15 minutes ride in a Songthaew. This is where a load of monks live in caves in the middle of the jungle! You can climb up 1237 steps (and they are bloody steep steps) to a shrine that the monks climb to worship. It is very very very tiring, especially in the humidity , but the view is rewarding and also knowing what the monks go through!!
