In Beach Weddings, Planning & Tips, Thailand Weddings by Ande Tongco

You could easily spend weeks in Krabi and leave yearning for more. With a more low-key vibe than neighbouring Phuket, this naturally beautiful holiday playground is beloved for its breathtaking pure-white beaches, 150+ off-shore islands, and beautiful seaside resorts. Perfect for ‘I do’!

Facing the shimmering Andaman Sea on Thailand’s south-west coast, Krabi offers a wealth of holiday wedding attractions. Just picture your photocall with those turquoise waters and iconic limestone sea cliffs in the background. Or a toes-in-the-sand reception beneath a starry Thai sky.

You’ll also want to linger longer to check out the local highlights including jungle-clad mountain trails, hot springs and sea caves, flourishing coral reefs, world-class snorkelling and dive sites, and glorious national parks that include Koh (meaning ‘island’) Phi Phi and Koh Lanta.

And as if that wasn’t enough, Krabi also serves up some of the most photogenic sunsets in Thailand, best enjoyed from a beachside bar or restaurant.

Luxury stays for you & your crew

When the big day dawns, you’ll have everything you need on your doorstep. Beachfront or lush garden setting for your ceremony, endless backdrops for your photocall, and a choice of reception spaces for the ultimate seaside soirée.

Like many areas in Thailand, Krabi is well-versed in holiday weddings — meaning you’ll have a local team by your side to ensure planning goes smoothly and you and your guests have the best time.

Honeymoon vibes

Because destination weddings offer the chance to enjoy a holiday and honeymoon as part of the experience, you’ll love Krabi’s huge range of activities, attractions and island-hopping adventures.

First stop for many visitors is Krabi’s local ‘town’ of Ao Nang, around half an hour from Krabi Airport. This vibrant seaside hub of hotels, bars, restaurants, and shops expands north into secluded Noppharat Thara, whose shady beach is part of the national park that includes the stunning Phi Phi Islands.

Ao Nang is also the major launching point for romantic longtail boat tours and day trips to Phra Nang Cape, home to the famous former hippie enclave of Railey Beach, and the Phi Phi Islands. Ready to shop? The region’s budget-friendly selection of shops and night markets, including the weekend Maharaj Walking Street and the daily Chao Fah Pier night market, will delight foodies and souvenir hunters alike.
