Four Island Tours Join by speedboat is the easiest and cheapest way to take you to paradise by the sea and a range of fun activities.
What to bring:
Swimming gear and / or change of clothes
Appropriate footwear (e.g. rubber flip flops or Crocs)
Adequate sun protection (cream, glasses hat)
Splashproof or waterproof bag
Your own snacks (if required)
Infant and young children’s flotation vests (if required)
Speedboat seating tips: the very front of the boat has the only open air seating, and the only place you will get a decent view; but it is also by far the most bumpy part of the boat. For fewer unpleasant thumps, sit at the rear of the boat. Never choose to sit in the middle section of a large speedboat; you will see virtually nothing at all. The side benches give you the option of kneeling up and looking out, not the most comfortable, but better than nothing).
Note that crowds on the beach when you arrive are not the same as crowds on the boat: you should not accept the latter under any circumstances.
The best tip then, to enjoy your island tour in Krabi, is to revise your expectations: tourist brochures peddling the fantasy of a deserted island are responsible for a lot of the disappointment – nobody would bat an eyelid to find other famous places such as the Eiffel Tower, or the Taj Mahal heaving with people. And it is always still possible – by swimming a little further away, or by snapping your pictures at a certain angle – to block out the background hordes and enjoy the view.
Cave Temple and Wat Thep Rattan is good place for you to discover the natural and cultural Buddhism in Ao Nang.

How to get there: You go up the same road as the road leading to Khao Phanombencha National park. This is the same park with Huay Toh (Huai To, on some signs) waterfall. Go up the road leading to Huay Toh waterfall. At about 2km you’ll cross a very small bridge. Within 200m will be a small school on your right side. Start looking on the left for a road that looks like the one in the video. It’s a gradual left turn that goes straight back into rubber tree plantations and a section where they dynamite a limestone karst for material to make concrete.
What to explore: What to explore at Wat Thep Rattan Temple and Cave?
The climb to the top is a bit steep, but visitors say it is well worth the effort. Inside you can shake moon blocks and fortune sticks and view a large display of paintings. Once back outside, you will see the enormous Goddess of Compassion, and in the distance, a large golden Buddha. The temple is about a 1-1/2 hour drive from Ao Nang.
