Krabi town is, as its name suggests, the capital of Krabi province; situated on the Andaman Sea coast here you will find over one hundred and thirty islands, mangrove swamps, national parks, sea caves and even hot springs. The town itself is somewhat diverse, Houses and Apartments are available, but these together with Hotels can book out a year in advance during high season. As a jumping-off point for visitors to Phi Phi island and Railey Beach, one of the premier rock climbing destinations on earth, Krabi is at times a hive of activity and yet it somehow still retains its status as an idyllic peaceful location for those seeking a quieter life.
Whilst Krabi has not been developed to the extent of say, Hua Hin or Phuket, it still has a range of Real Estate for you to choose from. Town Houses are popular Residential Properties and there is a reasonable selection of Apartments available, Detached Houses and Villas are less plentiful.
The Koh Lanta group, in Krabi Province, is made up of fifty two islands, with Koh Lanta Yai being the largest. Almost all of these islands are still devoid of tourism, although the larger ones are fast becoming major tourist destinations; this is very much an unspoilt paradise. Koh Lanta is home to a diverse mixture of peoples and cultures; Chao Ley or Sea Gypsies, Muslims, Chinese and Buddhist Thais all live and work together in traditional rubber, prawn farming and fishing industries. Houses are also traditional with the vast majority of the land still verdant tropical forest. The language has such a strong local dialect that even most mainland Thais find conversation difficult. Even for their development Koh Lanta Yai and Koh Lanta Noi have a limited Real Estate market as they cater more to the Hospitality market through Hotel, Apartment and Bungalow Holiday Rentals. Properties to buy or long term rent do exist (long term rentals are available through the hospitality market) but the selection of Houses or Villas is limited. Land is available and if your dream is a Home of your own design then Koh Lanta could be the island paradise opportunity that you are looking for.Listing on PropertyThailand.co.th is 100% free.
