Attraction Place in Krabi Town

Kao Kanap Nam ( Twin Mountains )The symbols of Krabi town

Khao Khanap Nam..Two little hills, about 100 meters high, flank the Krabi River which runs between them to form a distinctive vista and the town's most prominent landmark, in fact the very icon of Krabi Town

To visit them, take a long-tail boat from Chao Fa Pier, dont worry every boat man will ask you to go. Travel time is just 15 minutes. From there take stairs leading up to caves with stalactites and stalagmites.

There are two legends concerning the origin of the name "Krabi". The first is that villagers presented a large ancient sword (or Kra-Bee) that was discovered by chance and given to the 1st governor of Krabi.

Regarded as sacred and auspicious, the swords were placed crossing each other in Khao Khanap Nam cave. Since then, the crossed swords have remained a part of the provincial seal of Krabi.

Shell Cemetory

The 40 million-year-old Shell Cemetery in Krabi province has some of the oldest shellfish fossils on earth. Although not immediately impressive the site looks as though it houses a number of concrete blocks closer inspection proves more rewarding. The blocks you see are in fact thousands of shells stuck together to form a solid mass about 200 meters wide and 50 meters thick. Apparently, most of the shells are Gastropods and the blocks are formed from lignite deposits. If you are especially interested in the earth's prehistory, this will be a great place for you to visit. This is still somewhere worth visiting even if you are not.

Swampy Forest Tha Pom and Klong Song Nam

They are located at Tambon Kao Kham far from Krabi town 35 kms. On main road Krabi-Aoluk. It is amazing canal where salty and fresh water are met. Kayak and canoe tour are provided for anyone.

Wat Tam Sua Sau Pestera Tigrului este localizata la aproximativ 3 km de orasul Krabi. Înauntrul pesterii exista ceea ce par a fi urme de tigru în piatra. Aria înconjuratoare este acoperita cu copaci mari de sute de ani în special în valea Khiriwong. Muntii sunt în toate directiile si acolo sunt multe pesteri mai mici. Pe lânga faptul ca este un bun loc pentru meditatie este de asemenea si un loc de interes istoric si arheologic. Ustensilele din piatra, ramasitele din olarit, si obiectele pentru crearea urmelor picioarelor lui Buddha au fost gasite în urma excavatiilor.

The area is surrounded by trees and, sheltered beneath a limestone cliff is a lagoona with lapis lazuli water, where you can swim.
