Krabi in Southern Thailand


Situated next to the Andaman Sea, Krabi is a province of more than 100 beautiful islands, white sandy beaches, clear blue water, forests, caves and waterfalls. Located around 800 kilometres from Bangkok, archaeological digs suggest Krabi may have been one of the first places in Thailand where communities existed with find dating back to pre-history. Legend has it the name Krabi is taken after the Thai for sword as an ancient sword was found at the time of its capital city's creation. Key attractions in Krabi include the Phi Phi Islands and Koh Lanta which offer a wealth of excellent beaches, diving, snorkelling, and other beach based activities and water sports.
