There is a great little (6-story) hotel, freshly built and right beside Wat Tum Sua (Wat Thum Sua) Buddhist temple on the outskirts of Krabi town near the Big C and Tesco shopping centers.
Recently I saw a bunch of triathlete girls (presumably) using this hotel as a base, and I thought – what a great idea.
The name of the hotel is “Tawantai” mansion. Mansion in Thai means hotel or apartment building.
The rooms are large, newly furnished, safe to stay in and convenient to country roads where you might want to bike. I’m not sure I would run much in this area because of dogs – but, biking fast I’ve always been able to outpace them.
If you need to know where this Tawantai manion is just write me at: email@example.com and I’ll help you out.
Also, we think my wife is starting a Krabi Tours business so if you need elephant tours, Wat Tum Sua tours, Diving packages, 4 island trips, Waterfall tour, Crystal Lagoon Tour – or anything like this – give me a write at that address, and if we have the TAT license by then we’ll be able to help you out.
