Krabi Rayavadee

          When it comes to natural beauty and spectacular scenic views, few places in Thailand are able to rival the southern province of Krabi.

          Located 800 kilometres south of Bangkok, Krabi is one of Thailand’s most popular destinations. The beaches of Ao Nang, Railay and Koh Phi Phi have become international tourist destinations. With a coastline that is fringed with alluring tropical islands, coral reefs, and a land that is gifted with waterfalls, caves, hidden lagoons and innumerable rock formations, it is an understatement to precisely convey its distinctive qualities. The majority of the attractions in Krabi are natural ones, and you’ll find some of the world’s most dramatic seascapes here.
          Located a mere hour’s boat ride from Phuket and its international airport, Krabi is much quieter and less developed than other larger Islands such as Phuket. However, this accounts for its remarkable sea vistas and marine life. The defining feature of the province is perhaps the towering limestone rock formations that gracefully jut out from the water. The limestone cliffs and mountains around Railay Beach and Koh Phi Phi allow one to participate in rock climbing activities and experience being 100 feet in the air. Unsurprisingly Krabi is popular amongst climbers and proves to be one of Thailand’s most family oriented destinations.

          Off the coast lie dozens of exquisite islands, many of which are uninhabited and are untouched. You can visit these by signing up for day trips and can even relish in having the entire beach or the island to yourself!
          Ao Nang Beach is Krabi’s main resort area that is complemented with a backdrop of limestone formations. The beach is lined with resorts and tourist amenities. The Ao Nang Beach is an ideal location for a pleasant compromise between the natural wonders of Krabi and its more developed area.

          Visitors may also participate in leisurely activities other than those by the sea. One of the most popular places to visit is Krabi town, which provides a glimpse into the rich culture and bustle of Thai life. The town consists of markets, restaurants with a variety of cuisines, some of the best seafood specialties and also bargain shopping.
          Wat Khlong Thorn Museum is also worth a visit and the only museum in Krabi that is worth a mention. Ancient artifacts on display that have been excavated in the Krabi area include beadwork, bronze items, stone and clay animals and stone tools.
          With its laid-back and causal atmosphere, Krabi allows its visitors to enjoy the wonder and diversity of a seaside holiday.
