Wats in Krabi
Tiger Cave temple - aka Wat Tham Sua - is located near Krabi Town in southern Thailand. "Tiger cave" temple is a must see during any exploration of Krabi town.

It is one of the more interesting temple complexes in southern Thailand, as the monks live and worship within a maze of natural caves in an overgrown jungle valley.

Wat Tham Sua teaches a form of Buddhism called Vipassana. The temporary nature of the body is on display and the dead body parts help the monks to focus on more spiritual matters.

You can also climb the 1279 steps to the top of a karst peak and get a panaramic view of Krabi provience.
