Krabi

Overall Score

3.1

South of Thailand is the city of Crabey, the administrative center of a single province and the region of Myanga Crabey. It extends along the border of the Andaman Sea along the edge of the Crab River. The local economy is based on tourism. In 1999, an airport was built near Krabraba, which operates an international service to the island of Phuket as well.

The city is a gateway for tourists to the picturesque and mysterious islands of Koh Phi Pi, Koh Lant, Ao Nhanag, Tham Phra Nang. Five kilometers from the city outskirts is the passenger pier, from which boats and ferries depart. There is a bus terminal about 4 kilometers from the city center. The iconic 100-meter-high Hanoi Cana Nahm Mountain is one of the icons of Krabály. Inside is an ancient cave with ancient paintings on its walls. All around, there are oddly shaped objects on the ceilings. During archaeological investigations, remnants of ancient people were discovered in the cave.
