Krabi Town Attractions

What to See in Krabi Town

Traffic lights have never been fun, and they rarely qualify as points of interest. Krabi Town saw that as an opportunity. In the centre of town, statues of prehistoric man carry stop-and-go signals like heavy shopping bags.

Elsewhere, elephants and eagles keep watchful eyes on the traffic situation. It's more entertaining than it sounds.
