Khao Kanab Nam, Краби Khao Kanab Nam

Two of the picturesque hills of Khao Kanab Nam a height of 100 meters are one of the landmarks of Krabi town and the province as a whole. Their appearance graces the horizon in the direction of the Krabi river, almost from any point of the city's waterfront.

But these rocks can not only watch from the embankment, but also to visit them. This is one of the most simple and massive excursions and attractions for tourists staying in the provincial capital of Krabi town. If you are staying at another resort of the province, to come here to see this sight, in our view, is not: in Krabi , there are places more interesting. Besides the high season of tourists here so much that even the boats are in traffic, to approach the shore where there are rocks.

Khao Kanab Nam, Краби Inside the caves

Inside the mountains are caves, particularly interesting one, which carry all the tourists. It is well equipped for the visit and for the input charge of 30 baht. It is remarkable not only bizarre formations – stalactites and stalagmites, but also the fact that there were carried out excavations, during which were discovered many human skeletons, ancient utensils, the rock carvings. According to one version, it killed the whole tribe, which chose the place of residence of that cave, but during heavy flooding, people trapped and died in the house. This tells a small exhibition in the cave in the form of imitations of skeletons, sherds of pottery, models of ancient people and archaeologists. If you're here with the tour, the guide will tell in detail about these events. Also in one of the caves you can see a huge number of bats. If desired, the top of the mountain you can even get.

Some of the excursions to the mountains also include: walking in or along the mangroves; a landing in a traditional fishing village where you can see how fish are grown in artificial ponds, but in a natural environment and taste the fish in a restaurant on the water; the beach monkeys that tourists are not planted, but come close enough you could see how they swim and rage.

🕐 Time of work: round the clock, visit in the daytime.

💵 Entrance fee / ticket price: the entrance to the cave is 30 baht (but ushers are not always in place, you can go and for free). Excursions from 500 baht per hour and 800 for two hours.

🚶 How to get there: to Get to the rocks and caves only by boat from the pier to Chao Fa Pier (cliffs of Khao Kanab Nam on the map), which is adjacent to the promenade (on the left when looking from the city to the river) and which in turn is easily accessible from almost any hotel in Krabi town on foot. Right on the Marina or at the hotel you can buy a tour to the cliffs and caves (at the Marina is cheaper), and immediately go. But even cheaper is possible to arrange a boat trip with local boat directly. For example, for a one-hour walk you can negotiate from 400 baht for the boat, but you have to bargain. But in this case you will be without tour service in English.

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, the high 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, you can. 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 ...

Thank you. Hence, it is necessary to select in absentia the most beautiful beach and the hotel next to it, so on the taxi ride :-(
Write something about Phi Phi island and about the island on which it is possible to go with Lanta on a trip. Especially about a desert, a 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. ...

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. ...

What places would you recommend for snorkeling with kids 7-10 years in Krabi ?
The distance from Krabi Town does not matter - have a car and are considering a couple of days to rent a house, but the duration of the trip on the boat/the boat I would like to minimize.
Perfect - do not swim if there are reefs close to shore would be ideal. ...
admin 18 December, 2019
Yes, like anywhere, there are no snorkeling on the mainland, at least I don't know. In fact there places to stay are limited to those that we have described in the guide, others do not. And the whole snorkeling on the Islands or on boats. ...

Easier to just go to AO Nang, and there near the shore can cross-train and then by boat. ...
