Tips from the community

Tiger Cave Temple, or Wat Tham Suea, is a beautiful temple just north of Krabi. If you plan to travel by land to the Andaman Coast and catch a boat out to Koh Phi Phi or Koh Lanta, Krabi will be where you catch your boat. We recommend taking a day or two in Krabi along the way. Tiger Cave Temple is known for its 1,237 step staircase up to a large golden Buddha and a beautiful view of the surrounding area. These stairs are not for the faint of heart: some are shaded and average sized, but many are in direct Thai sun and knee height. Make sure to look where you are going and bring water! There will likely be opportunities along the way to meet the local dogs that climb these stairs regularly and the monkeys at the base of the stairs as well. Take note: the monkeys are not shy and may attempt to steal any food you’re holding.
