A small fishing town in the south of Thailand, Krabi lies on the coast of the Andaman Sea and is known for its picturesque, postcard beauty. With stunning beaches and towering cliffs of limestone, Krabi is a good place to relax and soak in the scenery.
However, for the adventurous traveler there are a number of interesting shipwreck dive sites as well as dense tropical jungle, waterfalls and caves for those who prefer to explore on dry land.
