Krabi Town: A Place You Just Can’t Miss

At 100 metres tall the stunning Khao Khanab Nam Mountains are Krabi’s most distinctive landmarks acting as a kind of gateway to to the town, the river running between the two limestone cliffs.
The mountain on the right hand side is home to caves containing formations of stalagmites and stalactites as well prehistoric cave paintings. The location is also well-known for the large number of human skeletons that have been found here. There are a variety of theories as to how they came to be here and how these people met their deaths, flooding being the most likely. A visit to Khao Kanab Nam can also be combined with a visit to a nearby mangrove forest and a traditional Thai fishing village called Ko Klang. Villagers can demonstrate cotton weaving, the making of local tools and utensils as well as captive fish breeding. You can also buy souvenirs and gifts here directly from the local people.

Although it may seem strange to mention department stores in a ‘things to do’ section, it’s worth mentioning that one of the good things about Krabi Town is that one has access to all the normal things a small town should have. This is not true of heavily touristy resort areas where prices are high and availability of practical goods is low. Both the Big C and Tesco Lotus are huge department store complexes selling everything you might need. They are both about 5km from town on Highway 4 heading towards the airport.

Krabi Cozy Place Hotel is a  neat small and well designed hotel is very centrally located, built around a swimming pool down a leafy lane. The rooms are simple, immaculate and well designed with all mod cons. We found the staff to be unusually surly however, but we might have caught them on an off day at the height of hot season. Another very major drawback is that they don’t offer free wifi. They charge 60 baht an hour for that or 200 baht a day.

Dee Andaman Hotel Pool Bar is a hotel which perfectly pulls off the trick of understated good taste. Even though it is brand new, it has an old world colonial feel mixed with the northern Lanna style of dark wood and large airy spaces. The rooms are large and bright with four poster beds that could almost be described as art deco.

Nowhere in Krabi Town could exactly be described as busy, but the Dee Andaman adds to its charm by dint of its location, which although central is down a leafy lane on a hill and is very peaceful indeed. It is a little far from the centre though so you will need transport or a fondness for hiking in order to get about.

Shop around Thailand and never find yourself stopping!

Shopping is one of the prime activities which every tourist to Thailand is excited about. For every reason, Thailand is one of the most popular shopping destinations for visitors. Let’s have a look at the most popular ones which would help you figure out where to shop, what entity to buy, and in what way the tour of Thailand could be an enchanting shopping experience like never before. Right from the boutiques of the capital city, Bangkok’s interconnected mega-malls to the bustling Thai night markets, shopping in Thailand is an experience as well as a bargain. Here is a mosaic of an opinion.

The most widely known Bangkok’s district among young and tight-budget travelers is the Khao San Road. It is a short street located near the Grand Palace at a 10 minutes walking distance. Truly, Khao San Road certainly has everything a single backpacker would need: a plethora of cheap accommodations to stay at, a raft of delightful restaurants and bars offering quality –elite and international cum local foods and drinks, several money exchange counters, tour operators to help in trouble hours and to plan visits in remote areas of Thailand.

With its very convenient location, it is easy for travelers staying on Khao San Road to get around the town on foot or bicycle, visiting Bangkok’s fascinating cultural landmarks like The Grand Palace, Temple of the Emerald Buddha, Wat Po, the City Pillar Shrine, the National Museum and the National Gallery. Doesn’t it present to you the most magnificent of shopping-roaming experience? I don’t doubt it.

My second most preferred location to go shopping in Thailand is Pratunam. It has been Bangkok’s largest wholesale neighborhood for centuries, decades before there’re those Platunum, Paladium and Shibuya 19 wholesale malls. The area at one corner of Petchaburi and Ratchaprarop roads might look dodgy from the outside but the real trading activities are taking place behind the street-side shop-houses. You pay a visit and dazzle yourself with the bustling activities. Going inside, you’ll find almost everything in fashion apparels from printed t-shirts to trendy jeans at best ever bargained prices (I’d call it min-blowing) for wholesales in purchase. Due to this, not only individual travelers but the traders also flock to this place and pay for the offerings to be sold Thailand wide. But I must add here that, if you are going to buy fewer than a dozen or twenty pieces of something, shops at wholesale malls across the street would offer relatively suitable deals, though unable to compare with Pratunam wholesale prices at every aspect involved.

So, the next time you visit Thailand, do not forget to take a tour around these places and find yourself in love with the shopping fiesta which is at display, or at sale I should say!
