Krabi Travel GuideEdit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see
Phi Phi Don is a popular hangout for the yachting crowd but it’s still an enjoyable place to hang out with good food and cheap bungalows but these are becoming less affordable for the travellers wishing to budget it seems the interest is for package tours. Have a water-buffalo steak while there and dive the reefs—although some have been destroyed there are some unspoiled areas remaining. Phi Phi Leh has some interesting caves worth exploring. The caves many of which contain ancient paintings are home to sea swallows. Local people climb to the tops of these huge caves on spindly bamboo poles to harvest the birds’ nests that are used in bird’s-nest soup.
Krabi is 40 mi/65 km northeast of Phuket. Krabi is beginning to accommodate more visitors each year raising fears that it will be another Phuket.
