For many, Krabi, located 814 km. south of Bangkok, is the most beautiful province along the Andaman coast. It is the kind of place where tired clichés like idyllic and pristine take on a whole new meaning. With the display of characteristic beaches and qualified soft coast of the Andaman, fine white sand, warm clear water and lush tropical greenery spilling onto the shore, provides a dramatic backdrop to the sites.
The locations are rust-hued cliffs, some soaring to 1,000 feet. There are also offshore islands, most famously the twin Phi Phi isles, the location for the movie The Beach, and reputed Ko Lanta.
Krabi has a wealth of “green” attractions; for example, Khao Phanom Bencha National Park, a lush nature preserve noted for its impressive waterfalls, as well as a comparative wealth of wildlife. Further north is Than Bokkhorani National Park, another immensely picturesque area of limestone mountains, waterfalls, pools, mangrove forests, caves and islands. Climate The weather is similar to that of Phuket, and sunny days can be expected even in the May - October rainy season.
