southern Thailand's east coast, 800
kilometres south of Bangkok, Krabi province
is an area of outstanding natural beauty.
Classic virgin beaches fringed with towering
limestone formations, is an understatement
to describe this stunningly beautiful area
of Thailand. The Krabi coastline is dotted
with rarely visited tropical islands, palm
fringed beaches, waterfalls, caves, and
strange rock formations.
Relatively new to tourism, the area is being
carefully developed with no real high rise
hotels and a wide range of places to stay
from small bungalows to the five star
prestigious, but relaxing Sheraton Rayavadee
Most accommodation is located around the
beach areas of Ao Nang, Rai Ley and Phra
Nang with some small local hotels in the
provincial capital, Krabi town.
