Thailand?s Krabi becomes tourism hotspot
Krabi has become increasingly popular as a holiday destination over the past few years. In spite of this, this beautiful province has maintained a typical Thai atmosphere, and its stunning coastal landscape has not been spoilt by excessive development. Thailand?s dynamic tourism authority has noted the rising popularity of?Krabi?as a focal point for tourism in Southern Thailand, and TAT?s recent findings suggest that hotel occupancy rates in the province currently average on 95 percent. What?s more, this trend looks set to continue in the near future due to the high number of reservations that have been made with Krabi?s holiday accommodation companies.
TAT?s findings are extremely encouraging for Thailand?s tourism industry, although it is hardly surprising that Krabi has performed so well this season. The province?s location on the Andaman coast is certainly a massive draw for those seeking a holiday beside the sea, and there are a number of idyllic beaches that provide the perfect setting for relaxing in the sun. Krabi also holds many attractions for tourists seeking adventure due to its excellent rock climbing opportunities and its fascinating marine life that is just waiting to be explored by diving and snorkelling enthusiasts. It seems that Krabi really does have something to offer everyone visiting this beautiful location.
Krabi?s position as a tourism hotspot has not gone unnoticed by the airlines operating in Asia. In fact,?Nok Air, Malaysia Airlines and Air Asia?have all increased their flights to Krabi International Airport to satisfy customer demand for transport links to the area. These additional services have undoubtedly increased the passenger traffic through the airport, although a significant investment programme carried out during the period 2003 – 2005 has ensured that the airport?s infrastructure is well prepared to cope with this increase. The airport has fast become a significant asset to Krabi?s tourism industry and it currently operates 24 hours a day.
Naturally, Krabi?s success during the current high season is pleasing news for Krabi Riviera Co Ltd. The company manages a notable portfolio of?holiday villas in the Ao Nang area, and only those properties meeting the highest standards in style and comfort are included in the portfolio. As a result, Krabi Riviera?s guests can look forward to enjoying properties with designer kitchens, luxurious bathrooms and private swimming pools, and a personal concierge service is also provided to ensure that guests enjoy a memorable, carefree holiday. Clearly, the company is a key participant in Krabi?s tourism industry, and its management and staff takes pride in offering only the highest standards in customer service.
With the combination of a superb location, beautiful scenery and some outstanding holiday accommodation, Krabi?s tourism industry deserves its current success and looks set to enjoy even further success in the future.
