Krabi Town

Bustling Krabi Town is majestically situated among impossibly angular limestone karst formations jutting from the mangroves, but mid-city you’re more likely to be awestruck by the sheer volume of guesthouses and travel agencies packed into this compact town. It's a key transport hub, around which a busy traveler scene continues to evolve. There's no shortage of restaurants, or gift shops selling the usual trinkets.

But hang around a while and you’ll see that there’s also a very real provincial scene going on beneath the tourist industry.
