Before I continue with my Krabi Adventure let me tell you some interesting facts about Krabi, Thailand.

 

According to Wikipedia, Krabi is a southern province on Thailand’s Andaman seaboard with perhaps the country’s oldest history of continued settlement. After dating stone tools, ancient colored pictures, beads, pottery and skeletal remains found in the province’s many cliffs and caves, it is thought that Krabi has been home to homo sapiens since the period 25,000 – 35,000 B.C.

 

 

In recorded times it was called the ‘Ban Thai Samor’, and was one of twelve towns that used, before people were widely literate, the monkey for their standard. At that time, c. 1200 A.D., Krabi was tributary to the Kingdom of Ligor, a city on the Kra Peninsula’s east coast better known today as Nakhon Si Thammarat.

Well, I hope with that little information that I have just mentioned will give some background about the history of Krabi.

 

Next posts will be some photos of Krabi that might encourage you to visit that beautiful place.
