Although it doesn't have any beaches of its own, Krabi Town is a charming choice for people who want to experience a very local Thai culture. Most tourists use this town majorly as a pass through to go to the nearby island towns, but Krabi in itself is very beautiful, especially in terms of its markets and restaurants.
Actually prounounced at 'Grabee', this is a small, beautiful town situated along the Krabi river. It is the provincial capital and is mostly preferred by tourists only as a transit point when they visit the nearby islands with beaches. However, it is advisable for travellers to take notice of this town also which offers a very local aura. The town has many activities happening throughout. You can engage in the market activities, go for Thai massages, or even take a boat ride to Khao Kanab Nam. The markets sell some delicious sea food and there are various restaurants in the town that have excellent local as well as international food.
