    Travel and Local Information Guide

    Located along the Andaman coast, in southern Thailand, Krabi is one of southern Thailand's most picturesque provinces with perfect beaches and a stunning interior. The province is famous for its great natural beauty, characterised by the karst limestone scenery that can be seen throughout the entire area. The coastline, 160 kilometres long, is dotted with bays, coves and outcrops of limestone mountains rising up from the sea, creating a fascinating seascape of tropical islands. Inland, the limestone mountains support a rich biodiversity of plant and animal life.

    Predominantly, it's an agricultural area, with sandy clay soil conditions producing rubber, palm oil, fruit, coconut and coffee. Rubber is the main cash crop grown with over 700,00 rai being under cultivation for this purpose. Palm oil comes in second, followed by coconuts. However, with natural attractions like tropical islands, palm fringed beaches, forest waterfalls and caves attracting more and more sunseeking, adventure-bound tourists, Krabi has begun to earn a substantial income from its tourism industry.
