Wat Them Sua Hotels

A few minutes northeast from the town of Krabi, Wat Them Sua sits nestled up high amongst lush swathes of jungle. One of Thailand’s best-known Buddhist temples, it’s comprised of a series of adornment-cluttered caves, that can be only be reached after a 1,237 step climb. Those who make the ascent however are rewarded with awe-inspiring views, a gleaming stupa, a trove of golden Buddha statues, and the famous ‘Buddha’s footprint’.

Things to see

Wat Them Sua is also known by its translation ‘Tiger Cave Temple’ – a name that stems from the legend of a giant tiger, said to have once resided within the main cave. Nowadays it’s home to Buddhist monks, as well as a rowdy gang of monkeys that roam the temple grounds. Whilst the 30 to 40-minute climb up to the temple can be quite arduous, the panoramic views of the leafy rainforests, limestone cliffs, and glittering ocean make it entirely worth the effort. For bargain-hunters, Walking Street will be a spiritual journey.

The beating heart of Krabi’s town centre come the weekend, the market’s stalls overflow with handicrafts, fashion, and souvenirs – all for affordable prices. If you get hungry, the central plaza sizzles with food stalls, where you can sample everything from tasty grilled satays to BBQ fish. When you need some R&R, a boat trip to Phra Nang Beach is a must. With its pure white sand, teal water, and grand limestone formations, the secluded stretch is among the prettiest in the province.

Hotels in Wat Them Sua

The majority of hotels near Wat Them Sua are situated in the province’s capital town Krabi. Whilst the characterful urban hub isn’t home to any luxurious beach resorts, it boasts a huge portfolio of budget-friendly digs – all of which cost considerably less than the more touristy areas. Among them you’ll find everything from stylish full-service hotels complete with on-site eateries and bar lounges, to simple but comfortable guesthouses, and no frills backpacker hotels. Whilst most hotels near Wat Them Sua are hardly ritzy, they generally provide guests with air conditioning, WiFi, and televisions in-room. Tawantai Hotel, Phuhi Hotel and Wanarom Residence Hotel are 3 of top hotels near Wat Them Sua.

Where to stay

If you’re here for sun, sea, and sand, then the Ao Nang resort offers paradise aplenty. Home to many plush hotels, its centrepiece is Ao Phra Nang Beach, a blonde sandy stretch, fringed with greenery and framed by limestone cliffs. The adjacent beach road is packed with westernized creature comforts, where you’ll find a huge choice of souvenir shops, multicultural restaurants, and lively bars.

Closer to Wat Them Sua, the province’s capital town Krabi offers a thriftier stay – where shopping, dining, and nightlife all come cheaper. Whist it’s further away from the beaches, both ferries and long-tail boats regularly depart from its passenger pier – taking day-trippers to idyllic spots like Railay Beach and the Phi Phi Islands.

How to get to Wat Them Sua

Krabi International Airport is the province’s primary gateway for overseas visitors. Offering connections to mainly Asian destinations, the busy hub is linked to major airports like Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi, making it easy to get a connecting flight should you be coming from further away. Once you’ve landed at Krabi International you can get to Krabi town via taxi or shared minibus, which usually takes around 15-minutes. Getting to Wat Them Sua shouldn’t be any trouble either. You can travel by mini-bus, taxi, or tuk-tuk from most places, or via a traditional songthaew bus instead. The latter is a particularly fun way to travel, and services leave from both Krabi town and Ao Nang.
