 INTRODUCTION

Thailand is a unique blend of modern western facilities with oriental cultural heritage but at the same time devoid of bad effects of both worlds. It has all the charms the wandering tourists lust for; at a cost that any one can afford to pay. Krabi is one of the great attractions in Thailand. It is the small capital town of the Krabi province sitting snug on the banks of Krabi river. It has got the distinct advantage of being a later discovery as tourist attraction. It is a beach spot that a tourist to Thailand can hardly afford to miss out.

Krabi town is very close to the river mouth that opens to the great Andaman Sea. 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 joins the sea at this area.
Shallow waters, innumerable 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 the story till early eighties when the tourists discovered Krabi once again in its new dimensions.

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 to the tourists who would like to have some tan to their skin from Krabi. Those who are more adventurous, can have the limestone precipices around on top of which they can have a good panoramic view of the surroundings.

Krabi and the surroundings are full of limestone outcrops and caves dating back to 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 Koh Phi Phi National Marine Park.

Krabi town on its own have some sights to offer its visitors. But none can say that these are all of the must see category. Still Krabi has a part of every thing other locations in the vicinity or Thailand as a whole can offer you.
