Buying Land in Krabi, Thailand

The province of Krabi covers around 4700 square kilometres and stretches from the Phuket Peninsular down the Andaman coast to Trang province. The Province has about 100km of the most amazing coastline in the world and also includes hundreds of Islands, the largest of which is Ko Lanta.

Krabi Town is the capital of the province and is situated close to the coast about midway down the province. The new international airport and Bus station are located on the outskirts of the town.
