Krabi

Take it from me Krabi is a great place. Living in Thailand enables me to tell you about the places as they really are. Krabi is one of the better attractions in Thailand.

It has got the distinct advantage of being a later discovery as tourist attraction. As a beach resort Krabi and It's Hotels are located perfectly, close to Phuket and the Phi Phi islands. A blend of high class hotels and for those on a budget. It is well worth making Karbi part of your holiday in Thailand. You won't be disappointed.

Krabi town is very close to the river mouth that opens to the great Andaman Sea. The Krabi river flows about 5 km through the town and opens into the Andaman sea at Tambon Pak Nam. Quite a few other rivulets originating from the mountain ranges in the province , Kao Panom Benja ; the Klong Pakasi, Klong Krabi Yai and Klong Krabi Noy - also join the sea here.
Shallow waters, dozens of tiny islands scattered around with protected mooring bays for boats made it a haven for seafarers. Quite naturally, the main economic activity in the region was fishing and agriculture. This was true until the eighties when tourists discovered Krabi once again.

Well protected bays and innumerable beaches with fine white sand; crystal clear waters on the shallow shore line, boating and snorkeling facilities are all added attractions for the tourists who would like to add some colour to their skin from Krabi. Those who are more adventurous, can view or even climb the limestone precipices around on top of which stunning views can be found.

Krabi and the surroundings are full of limestone outcrops and caves dating back thousands of years. The caves show evidence of human habitation for centuries. Thailand being a predominantly Buddhist state, the caves are mainly cave temples and monasteries or centers for meditation.
Thick jungle provide an excellent panoramic backdrop. And there are very many habitable and virgin islands in the sea around. The islands all mainly belong to The Koh Phi Phi National Marine Park.
