Krabi Google maps and facts
Thailand is also known as ‘the Land of Smiles’ and this nickname stems from the country’s welcoming locals, and the people of Krabi know exactly how to cater to tourists. Transportation throughout the province is mainly based on local boats used to get from island to island and songthaew (shared taxis) to get around the road systems.
Krabi is well used to large numbers of foreign visitors and as such, the locals are aware of foreign etiquette. One important rule to follow is to always remove shoes when entering a religious temple and women should cover their shoulders and avoid low cut or revealing clothes off the beach while men should ensure they wear a shirt.
Tipping is a social norm in Krabi’s tourist spots as many staff rely heavily on tips to bulk out their otherwise poor wages. Women should not touch a monk and neither sex should touch a Thai on the head. Another important factor to take into consideration is to avoid any insult toward the king as he holds an extremely high status with Thai people, with the royal family worshipped by many.
The best way to get around on dry land in Krabi is by hire car or local taxi, known as songthaew. Metered taxis are also available although not in large numbers and the roads throughout the province can be dangerous so it is best not to hire a motorbike unless you are an experienced rider.
Long tail boats are used to get around the island with a few larger boats for those who wish to enjoy an organised tour with larger numbers. Krabi is home to Krabi Airport (KBV), which serves the province and many of the area’s visitors arrive by plane. The airport is located 15kms from Krabi Town and some hotels provide shuttle transfers to and from the airport.
