Attractions in Krabi
The Beach is considered one of the most spectacular of all the Andaman coastal locations. This idyllic spot is a peninsula
that can only be reached by boat, as it’s separated from the mainland by sheer limestone cliffs. A few quiet resorts are
situated between the two crescent–shaped beaches. In all, there are a number of beautiful beaches to choose from, but
Phra Nang attracts most of the day–trippers as it features an ancient shrine inside a cave. Those who are fit can hike up a
steep path to the top of the karst and gaze down into a hidden sinkhole lake in the middle.
Koh Phi Phi Natural Park
This famous island group comprising two smallish, tree–covered, rocky islands: Phi Phi Don and Phi Phi Le. Phi Phi Don is
the larger of the two, and is world–famous for its coral formations and spectacular beaches. Comfortable but limited
accommodation is available along the island’s two scenic bays, Ton Sai and Loh Dalam. Shops at Ton Sai offer diving and
snorkelling trips off Phi Phi Don and around the other islands located nearby, such as Koh Phi Phi Le, Koh Mai Phai and Koh
Yung. The ferry to Phi Phi from Krabi Town takes 90 minutes and runs twice daily. The Tsunami wiped out most of the
development on the island and not much has been rebuilt leaving it in a more natural state.

Fossil Shell Cemetery (Susan Hoi)
The Shell Fossil Cemetery is one of Krabi's most popular attractions, consisting of an enormous slab of rock that has been
forming for the past 35 million years. Over the millennia, the composite of fossilised shells has grown to a thickness of
nearly 16 inches. This archaeological find is located at Ban Laem Pho Cape, only 10 miles from the Krabi Town.
Wat Khlong Thom Museum
This is really the only museum in Krabi that’s worth a mention.The Museum exhibits various artifacts discovered during excavations of an area
called "Khuan Luk Pat" or a bead mound behind Wat Khlong Thom. Unearthed artifacts include stone tools, bronze implements, metal coins, pottery
shards, ceramic and stone decorative art and colored beads that are over 5,000 years old. This Museum is situated within the compound of Wat
Khlong Thom between Kilometer marker 69-70 on Phetchakasem Highway, one kilometer from the District office

Viking Cave in Phi Phi Island
If you are wondering what attracts visitors to Viking Cave, it is usually the profound beauty. There is no beach area on this
part of Phi Phi Lei. The island simply juts abruptly into the sea. The actual cave is 3.2 square kilometers large. This Phi Phi
Lei cave got it's name from the Viking ship cave drawings on the wall. The inhabitants of Viking Cave create the most
amazing feature. Thousands of swallows live on top of the 15 meter high ledges. The collecting of the bird's nests is a
regular demonstration on guided tours.
The Maya Bay in the Phi Phi Islands is shallow with crystal clear water and splendid coral formations. Both novice and
experienced divers are drawn to Maya Bay, because of its abundant rock formation that drops to a depth of 18 meters;
and just outside the bay - the 30 meter wall dive with caves, valleys and swim-throughs made by underwater rock
formations. Snorkeling is also popular in Maya Bay. The visibility is unlimited in gentle waters, and the experience is
nothing short of magnificent. It is said that Maya Bay has the most stunning beach in Phi Phi, and embraces luxury with
the fragrance of orange jasmines lacing the wealthy rural Maya Bay Thai village nestled in the bay
