This is my favorite restaurant in all of Thailand. The food is unbelievable, the owners are the sweetest Thais ever, and the restaurant itself is a cozy little spot. May is a bubbly, smiley, sweet woman who will probably send you out something in a heart shape if she finds out you're newlyweds. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner, and May makes tons of bread from scratch daily as well as curries which are off the hook! If you're craving something that isn't featured on the menu, don't hesitate to ask, she will probably whip it up special for you!
A great attraction for an active couple. It takes a climb up 1200 steps to reach the top of this temple, but the views from the top are sure to deliver! It is easily accessible via songthaews (shared taxi) or the covered, colored pick up trucks.
This is a very romantic spot for a couple to chill out and relax, and as it is in close proximity to the Tiger Cave Temple, they're good places to combine. These are salty hot springs that are great for the body and offer some fantastic views.
This is a great town to get massages, shop, and enjoy some delicious seafood. There are an indefinite number of shops along the boardwalk offering elephant pants, t-shirts, and other tourist garb. There are also tons of seafood, Indian, pizza and Thai restaurants in the area, meaning you can get your fix of whatever cuisine you happen to be craving. Finally, you can end your exploration with a couples massage at sunset on the beach! Walk along the boardwalk to the left when facing the ocean, and keep going past the Last Chance Bar until you find the 20-something massage huts that are labelled by number. Most have the same prices but will offer discounts for two or more people or services. My personal favorite is the 5/6 hut! The ladies there are great!
There are actually three markets in Krabi Town, two of which are night markets that occur every day. One of these is located in the middle of town, and offers mostly fruits, veggies, and curries for take away, while the night market listed here is by Chao Fah Pier, and features many stands with little plastic tables and chairs in front, offering menus which feature a wider variety of Thai dishes and beer. The final market of the three, takes place from Friday to Sunday only, and has souvenir and handicraft stalls, as well as food options and a variety show. You could spend hours watching the performers and munching on the delicious treats!
This is a great romantic breakfast spot overlooking the river in Krabi Town. The staff don't rush you, and on a rainy morning, you can take your time and sip on mango lassis and munch on English or American breakfasts to your hearts' content.
One of the best beaches in Thailand, this stretch of secluded sand is great for couples to experience together. It is only accessible via boat even though it is on the mainland - as limestone cliffs make it impossible to reach via land - and the trip by long tail boat is all part of the appeal. The waters are clear and when you get here, people typically leave you alone.
This is a hidden gem of a beach! Everyone knows of Railay, but not many venture all the way to Phra Nang, accessible only via the walking path from Railay (which you can only access by long tail boat.) The water is crystal clear and the beach is a little more deserted than Railay so it makes for a great romantic getaway.
A great day trip option. The hong islands are far less visited than Koh Phi Phi, Koh Rok or Koh Lanta. Hong means 'room' in Thai, and you will understand why they were named the 'room' islands as soon as you see them! Each island has little coves or rooms of calm, clear water that are almost fully closed in by limestone cliffs.
A funny little spot to appreciate the stranger side of Thai culture together. This small cave at the entrance to Phra Nang beach is full of phallic sculptures. Whoever said romance was dead?!
