I went with my husband and Smon/ Niwat who are protecting Krabi Historic sites at this moment. Both are working very hard to preserve Krabi environment. I was so touched by my surrounding and for sure not everyone will have the same feeling. ( my...More

This is one of the 3 of it’s kind in the world. At first impression, the place looks somewhat unassuming but the treasure is in the detail. You can see a very large number of gastropod fossils in the rock slabs, which are around 2...More

This was the first time to Fossil Shell Beach and it will probably be my last. I found the signs in English to be weathered and hard to read. Also I didn't find the fossil stations to be very inspiring. I wish there were more...More

Undoubtedly a place of geological interest but not worth the 400THB entrance fee levied to enter the national park. Some touristy souvenir and ice cream shops. Not on my must-see list.

Car park, few souvenir shops, steps down to the "fossil beach". If I'm honest, without reading the plaque which explains what you're looking at, you could be forgiven for thinking that you were looking at a load of huge concrete paving stones. Not really worth...More

Small visitors centre with information on the background to the large fossil slabs on the beach. Only visible at low tide.

Rock formed by Shell deposits due to certain natural condition that killed the environment for shells. Looks like concrete slab, look closely and it is not. You could see fresh Shell being formed if you visit on a low tide.

Check out Mook Susan Hoi Shop for pearls from Andaman sea. If you like pearls. My wife got some nice pearl jewelry sets at a very nice price.
