About Travel to Krabi
Krabi town is a large and interesting place which relatively few visitors stay long enough to appreciate. Krabi province is a popular destination with some very well known beach resort areas, such as Ao Nang, Railay and the overdeveloped Koh Phi Phi.
Krabi Town itself is often seen as little more than a transport hub for travellers arrving on flights from Bangkok or by bus. Krabi Bus Terminal, just to the north of Krabi town, is the main long distance bus terminal in the area. Krabi Town is also where you need to go to take a ferry to Koh Phi Phi, or get a catch a local shared taxi to Ao Nang or the pier at Ao Nam Mao for local boat services to Railay.
Tourist Attractions in Krabi Town
Krabi town has around 55,000 permanent residents and a very laid back atmosphere. The focal point of the town is the Pak Nam Krabi river which runs around the edge of the town. Alongside the river is a promenade within the very pleasant Chaofah Park, which features some great sculptures. Also within Chaofah Park is a riverside night food market which is very popular both with tourists and with locals as a place to eat and drink for very cheap prices with riverside views.
Markets in Krabi Town
Krabi town has two other night markets, which are also worth visiting. At the weekends the Walking Street market is very entertaining with a live music stage and a bar, as well as food and souvenir stalls. For a more authentic Thai cultural experience, however, we recommend getting up early in the morning and visiting the famous Maharaj Market. Maharaj Market is the largest fresh food market market in Southern Thailand, and it’s a great place to come and see the local produce as well as to try the local cuisine in the massive food court that opens early every morning to feed the many hungry shoppers and market stallholders.
