Wat Khlong Thom Museum in Krabi

Тигриный храм в Краби

Wat Khlong Thom would be unremarkable Church, like thousands of others in Thailand, if not in his eponymous Museum. The Museum shows ancient tools and objects discovered during the excavations of the ancient settlement in the vicinity of the temple and raised from the bottom of the canal Khlong Thom in a place where it is believed there was an ancient trading port on the route of ships between Asia and other world. This bronze tools, beads, Roman coins, pottery, stone jewelry and other vintage items, many of which are dated BC.

Not to say that this Museum is well worth a visit, except that if you pass by.

Hours: the temple is open in the daytime, the Museum from 08.30 - 16.30, lunch break from 12:00 to 13:00. If the doors of the Museum are closed, you must knock and you will open

Entrance fee: free temple, the entrance to the Museum is 100 baht/children 50 baht (see currency of Thailand, the exchange rate to the ruble)

How to get there: the temple and Museum are located about 50 kilometers from Krabi town on the main Phetkasem road (temple on a map of Krabi). You can reach it only by hired transport or by bus towards Koh Lanta and Trang. You can combine your Museum visit with a visit to emerald lake (Emerald Pool), because the turn in the direction of the pond located less than a kilometer to the Museum.

Hello. How long to drive from Saladan to the southern part of Lanta? If there are great rental, or just stories? And is it possible to see the Isle of man, do not know how to drive a bike? And if you still dare to try on the bike, slipped the broken as not to understand this? ...

Hello! Because the island is quite small, from long beach to the South 20-30 minutes on the bike. But on the bike it is just too much, 30 kilometers to go, and even in the heat. I think not everyone will master, but in principle, if breaks and holidays, be sure to stock up on water, it is possible for 3-4 hours to get there, but it's so vskidku. Anyway in my opinion this is a dubious idea, if you consider it from the point of view just to get. It is better to use a motorcycle taxi. If you were a lover go and see this as a trip for pleasure and travel, great rental would find no problems, everything is there. ...

Well, what about "to take a motorbike as not knowing how to drive" - IMHO forget it. If at least some experience was. But without prejudice, I understand you girl. I will not impugn your abilities, but in the eyes of the distributors you just "girl", and even then likely to get a divorce you will have a lot more ...

Write something about Phi Phi island and about the island on which it is possible to go with Lanta on a trip. Especially about the desert, the jungle, "where many wild monkeys". There are? How to get how much, can I spend the night on some deserted island? ...

About Phi Phi, we will have relatively soon complete travel guide. For you to his side do not look, this is not Paradise island, and ravey. Quiet area it can not be called. On other Islands I can not say, went round a few of them along with the tour, there is always the beaches are always Packed, and bring Turikov boat for boat. But try to look at the Islands South of Lanta, there seems to be not so crowded. ...

Hello!
If I remember correctly, the minivans stopped on the street jazz Alley in shopping centre Vogue. This is from the promenade with crab 15 minute walk. There is, in any case, everything is close, within walking distance. About pierce Chao FA not sure what to Lanta leave from there, or rather has always been sure that are not sent unless something has changed. And ferry tickets are not fundamentally where to buy, the difference is not big, and even if the Agency you transfer to will offer, and so will have to get. https://nashaplaneta.net/asia/thai/krab ... k-dobratsa ...
