Krabi, in recent years, has become a highly popular destination for visitors to Thailand, probably due to the relatively recent opening of an International airport terminal. All the same, Krabi still retains its charm and is largely untouched by the outside influences that visit every year.
About 1000 km south of Bangkok, Krabi is situated on the opposite coastline of the Malacca Strait to Phuket. The town is quite small with approximately 25,000 inhabitants and offers the same as most towns in Thailand. Lots of markets, shopping, restaurants with exotic foods, temples (wats) etc. and a friendly local population but does lack in “big attractions”. However, as holiday destination, it is well worth a visit, and there is plenty to keep you occupied. It may not be too surprising to know that most visitors come here following a few days in Thailand’s capital city of Bangkok and the contrast in the two locations could not further apart.
