Should I Travel To Phuket Or Krabi?

Let’s cut right to the chase! Should you travel to Phuket or Krabi? The answer all depends on how many days you have in your itinerary. The immediate thought that comes to mind is to visit both! But if you only have a limited time frame to travel in this area of Thailand then you must choose what exactly it is that you want to experience.

Phuket Explained

If you have 5 days or more to visit than you should definitely visit both! However, if you only have between 2 and 4 days to travel than Phuket would be the better choice. the 3 pictures below are just a few things that you will get to see on a trip to Phuket.

The reason I say Phuket is the better choice is because Phuket is simply a bigger area with more things to do. Not only can you view stunning scenery from the hilly areas of South Phuket island or lay out on the beach to catch some rays, but you can also visit nearby temples and spend days riding the island by motorcycle. Riding up and down the western coast of the island between Patong and Promthep Cape is a memory I will always have in my mind. Here is my detailed post on what to do in Phuket!

Krabi Explained

Krabi is an incredibly beautiful place in its own right and the place I visited first before I visited Phuket. In Krabi you can spend the day at Ao Nang beach staring out at the beautiful rock islands and then can walk a few short minutes to multitudes of restaurants ranging from Thai to Indian to Western cuisines. I stayed in a hotel that was about a 5 minute walk to the beach and personally loved eating at the local street food stalls in front of the Masjid Aonang AL-Manuawarah Mosque. Here is my detailed post on what to do in Krabi!
