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.
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
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
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.
