Over in Krabi, you’ll find two outstanding islands, which are Koh Phi Phi and Koh Lanta.
Did it surprise you to know that Koh Phi Phi is actually in the province of Krabi?

Krabi offers all kinds of food, ranging from burning hot dishes such as Gaeng Som to mildly spiced items like Khao Mok Gai. Whichever dish you choose, we guarantee that you will love it and be even more shocked at the fact that you only paid 50 baht for such a delicious meal.
