Krabi is one of Thailand’s most attractive destinations. Miles and miles of white-sand, palm fringed beaches and clear blue water full of teeming fish make this southern Thai province a holidaymaker’s dream. But these things are just part of Krabi’s appeal. A Krabi paragliding trip is a journey high over one of the most beautiful parts of an incredibly beautiful country.
Krabi lies on Thailand’s Andaman Coast, on its western side. It is around a 12 hour drive from Bangkok, or a short hop by air on one of the region’s budget airlines. It is close to the busy holiday island of Phuket, but has a very different character. Krabi is all about laid-back vibes and natural beauty.
Krabi’s coastline is packed with unspoilt beaches, isolated bays and rocky islets. Just off the coast, there are many islands, including the renowned Phi Phi islands. Paragliders explore this lovely little corner of the world by air, jumping off the granite hills and cliffs near the sea and flying over the beaches and islands. The panoramic views over the area are unforgettable.
A little inland, paragliders can head for the hills. A short distance from the coast, there are limestone peaks surrounded by thick jungle. The area is a favourite with trekkers, who like explore the jungle beneath the canopy, and kayakers who make their way through the mangrove swamps in the valleys. Paragliders get to see the whole area from the air, flying over sweeping valleys covered in rainforest and tropical wildlife.
A Krabi paragliding trip is a fantastic way to see Thailand at its most beautiful. It is the country’s pristine beaches and jungles that first drew tourists here: why not see them at their best: from the air?
