Contrary to popular belief, Railay, which is situated between Krabi and Ao Nang, is not an island. Rather, it is a peninsula.

Only three locations on Earth, Krabi being the largest, have this distinctive collection of freshwater fossils close to the ocean. One of the unique things to do in Krabi is to visit this location if you have an interest in geology or the formation of the earth.

The "75 million-year-old Shell Cemetry" is another name for this location because it is thought to have occurred 75 million years ago. Additionally, there are a few little shops close to the coast where you can purchase souvenirs and shells. It is advised to stay away from this area during high tide because the majority of the slabs become submerged in the water. 

6.
