Krabi – The Most Spectacular Sun Sea and Sand of Siam
Once in a while, a friend of mine will ask me for a recommendation on the best beaches in Thailand and my first response will always be Krabi. Less well-known to tourist than Phuket, Samui or Pattaya, Krabi is the most beautiful of all the beach resorts in my opinion. The beaches here have a unique characteristic with its seaside cliffs, providing a spectacular sight. When the sun set over the Andaman Sea, this scenery becomes even more amazing. Moreover Krabi is also great with conservation. Krabi is an escape from time and the hectic life of the city. Less crowded than other seaside cities, it is perfect for a getaway. In addition, Krabi is probably one of the few places left in Thailand where people use traditional thai wooden boats as a mean of transportation rather than a speed boat. Thus providing a glimpse into the past lifestyle of the local Thais. All of these reasons make Krabi to be my preferred recommendation to friends.
There are many ways to get to Krabi. The easiest is to take a domestic flight from Bangkok from which is only about an hour away. Krabi also has an international airport which connects to other major cities in South East Asia.
