Krabi, Thailand

 

The fishing town of Krabi is located just off the Andaman Sea. It is the perfect travel destination for

those seeking a relaxing day  or a short trip to the south just to catch rays of the sun while embarking on a bit of rock climbing, snorkeling, and/or scuba diving.

The scenery on Krabi Island is breathtakingly spectacular and beautiful. The 300 meter lime stones of Nam Ao Bay conspicuously protrude overhead. Access to the peninsula by land is cut off by cliffs making it hard to get to the headland except by long tail boat.

Ao Nang Beach is just north of Phra Nang Beach. This beach is used primarily as a jump-off point for other islands. Along Krabi River is Phi Phi Family Pier where you can access Koh Poda just six kilometers on the south side. After Koh Poda is a chicken-shaped limestone head called Chicken Island.

Farther on are the even more beautiful islands of Hong and Bamboo. Hong Island is shaped like a horse shoe with a scenic lagoon which is best accessed during high tide. This island is approximately 40 kilometers in the northwest direction. On the south is Bamboo Island (Koh Mai Phai) with its fine white sands covering almost the entire island.
