Today we decided to rent motorbikes and explore Krabi town on our own. Our plan was to go to Tiger Cave temple, Emerald pool/blue lagoon and hot springs. These attractions are 1 to 2 hrs of drive from Ao nang so be prepared to ride for a long time and make sure your motorbikes are in good condition with 1 to 2 litres of gas. We left early morning to climb the tiger cave viewpoint. The view point is 1237 steps high and the steps themselves are higher than an average step so be prepared to hike for a good 1 to 1.5 hrs. Carry Gatorade and water. Be prepared for sore legs the next morning if you are not used to steep hikes. However, the views at the top are worth of all of this. You get a panoramic view of Krabi province with green plateaus on one side and rocky hills on the other. There is a huge Buddha statue on the top and a Ganpati temple.
Climbing down was scarier but we managed. We left from there and went onto Emerald pool. In between we had our lunch at Sabi Day Cafe which is a quaint little cafe with awesome food. Please see my review here Sabai-Day Cafe'

We continued towards emerald pool which was much needed after the hike in the hot sun. We reached there and cooled off. We missed going to the hot springs which is very near so I suggest you take out ample time to explore the National Park which had emerald pool, blue lagoon and much more. The hot springs are also around the same area.
