Long Tail Boat in Krabi Thailand
Long Tail Boat in Krabi Thailand

Phuket has some of the most popular beaches in Thailand and also famous islands such as the ‘James Bond Island’ and Phi Phi Island. Solo as well as family tourists from all over the world are drawn to Phuket. Its main nightlife resort town – Patong, rivals and perhaps outshines Pattaya and as such is the most popular place of stay for tourists. The other two prominent resort towns of Phuket are Kata and Karon. For the first time visitor, Patong is the safest because it provides almost everything that people come to Phuket for. I have been to Phuket a few times and stayed at Patong everytime.

Krabi in comparison to Phuket is a destination more suited for a family holiday. The wild ways of Phuket are totally missing here. One still gets to visit all the famous islands – James Bond Island, Phi Phi Island, etc., that one can visit from Phuket. The prices of everything, including for the island tours, are lower in Krabi as compared to Phuket. And there is less cheating by travel agents. The main recommended place to stay in Krabi is Ao Nang.
