Next Day
Yesterday evening we reached the Andaman Sea off Thailand's southwestern coast. We put our bags down at a place called Krabi. Limestone towers rise as Nature's fortifications, protecting tropical vegetation and isolating sandy strips along the water. Most visitors hire boats from persistent boatmen who hang around Krabi's waterfront promenade. The boats carry people to offshore, private beaches.
At Krabi we find broad sweeps of sand, limestone cliffs, and forested hills.
Take a shaded mototaxi ride along Krabi's waterfront. Many hotels spread along the coast and motorized transport, either boats or moto-taxi, is needed.
