Krabi is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Thailand. Located in he southern Thailand, Krabi is approximately 800 kilometers away from Bangkok. Krabi is famous for its natural beauty including white sandy beaches, fascinating coral reefs, numerous large and small islands with beautiful beaches suitable for snorkelling and scuba diving. Krabi also posses rain forests with caves and waterfalls. Unlike its big neighbor Phuket which is crowded, Krabi offers a quiet and comfortable atmosphere which is perfect for relaxation. You won’t find many massage parlours or discos in Krabi. If you are more into night life and fun, phuket or Bangkok is the right place for you. Krabi is for those who appreciate the beauty of nature and for those love to relax on white sandy beaches away from crowd. But this doesnt mean that Krabi is short of modern facilities. You can get excellent hotels in Krabi with swimming pools, bath tubs and they serve you clean and delicious American and Thai food. Or if you prefer to stay in resorts, Krabi got them too. Some of the private island resorts in Krabi are highly expensive that even an upper class Thai like me can’t afford them. Here is a list of affordbale Krabi Hotels for you choose.
