Places visited on the 4 island Krabi tour
Okay so now we are going to run through all the islands visited on the Krabi tour package and a full Krabi tour package review;
1.Phra Nang Cave Beach
First stop Phra Nang Cave Beach, a scheduled tropical paradise located 15 minutes from West Railay. Phra Nang Cave Beach is surrounded by impressive limestone rock formations creating a picturesque backdrop, perfect for that insta gram shot. To witness breath taking views why not climb up to the huge cave at the south end of the beach. Yes it can be a strenuous steep climb and maybe not ideal in flip flips, but it’s certainly worth the effort.
You are given around 1 hour to explore the 450 metre stretch of beach, hike up the mountain, cool of in the crystal clear waters or simply take in the stunning environment. Your time keeping might come in handy here as you don’t want to be left stranded on the island!
If you’re staying in Krabi, you need to visit the Krabi town night market
2.Koh Poda Island
Koh Poda Island was by far my favourite and not just because dinner was served! Koh Poda Island is a picture postcard destination with white power sandy and shallow crystal clear waters.
For dinner we were served thia green chicken curry with rice and noodles, not 5* al care, but it filled the spot. The best part was being able to find a shady spot of the beach and listen to the lapping of the gentle waves whilst we digged in. There’s also a small shop on Koh Poda Island selling snacks and drinks if dinner doesn’t float your boat. Your captain will give you around 1 hour before having to head to the next destination Chicken Island. I really didn’t want to leave!
Check out the Phi Phi overnight stay
Next up, Chicken Island, instantly recognisable by a large rock formation that resembles a chickens head! Your boat doesn’t actually stop on the island but is perfect place to try your hand at snorkelling.
The captain will anchor the boat 15 metres from the shoreline and will give you 30 minutes to explore the reef. I would recommend taking an underwater go pro to capture the moment to create memories for life.
Tup Island is the final destination on Krabi’s 4 Island Tour and it didn’t disappoint. Chicken Island and Tup Island are connected by a sand bank and at low time you can actually walk between the two, pretty cool if you ask me! Walk out into the shallows waters and you’ll be surrounded by colourful fish. Tup Island is quite small and there’s not much shade which I presume is the reason why the captain only gives you 30 minutes to walk around.
After a 30 minute boat ride back to the mainland you’ll hop back into the transfer buses and head back to your hotel to relax after a busy day of sightseeing.
The epic Railay beach Krabi
One of my best beaches in Thailand is the stunning Railay Beach. This amazing beach is the meaning of paradise.
The beach is stunning and the hotels on Railay Beach are perfect. You will visit this amazing beach if you do the Krabi 7 island tour.

We choose the half day private session for two people, which included equipment hire, an experienced English speaking guide and insurance.

Watch a Muay Thai Fight
Muay Thai is Thailand national sport, so why not visit Ao Nang boxing stadium on a Tuesday or Friday night and watch a traditional Muay Thai fight in Krabi. This is one of the most popular things to do in Krabi aswell as the 4 island tour Krabi. Matches are all about spectacle: a complex dance ceremony is performed before each fight to pay respect to the combatants’ teachers and to the guardian spirit of Thai boxing. The atmosphere is electric with the stadium quickly filling with both locals and tourists. The main concession to tourism is the eye-watering price tag, tickets for foreigners cost 1200 – 1500 baht, but for this you will see up to 9 fights ringside, a price worth aying in my eyes!

Before heading to Krabi I did some research and came across I few articles suggesting 4 Island Tour Krabi has become overrun with tourists. Well yes, you’re not going to get the islands to yourself, but this doesn’t mean the there no longer beautiful. The captain took us to the islands using a different route to other tour companies to try and minimise the number of people on one island at a time. For 1000Baht you can’t complain at the price and you’re paying for what you get!
