Krabi town vs province[edit]

I'm wondering if Krabi (province) should be moved to Krabi and the town into Krabi Town, to match the layout for Phuket/Phuket Town — most people associate "Krabi" with the entire region and places like Ao Nang, not Krabi town. Jpatokal 01:45, 21 Dec 2005 (EST)

I think the priority should be to make it as easy as possible for people (especially those with limited wikitravel experience) to make a contribution. Stick with what is most simple and most logical (ie province = Name_(province) / city = Name for all province/city names except Bangkok and Phuket) and include a link at the top of each article to the other article (as is already the case here). Only Bangkok and Phuket warrant exceptions (the latter because Phuket is also an island, yet always referred to as simply "Phuket", never Ko Phuket). —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs)
Consider the user who types "Krabi" into the search box — are they looking for the famous place with gorgeous beaches, limestone cliffs and diving, or are they looking for the rather dull administrative town? To me this seems exactly the same logic as for Phuket, where the area as a whole is much better known than the town. (Bangkok is a different case, as there Bangkok the city and Bangkok the province are identical.) Jpatokal 06:59, 21 Dec 2005 (EST)
They could be looking for either; the majority will probably end up looking at both no matter which one they view first, as for most people the most relevant information is split between the two, and each one is easily accessed from the other. Better to stick with province = Name_(province) / city = Name -- it's not detrimental to reader-users, and it makes much more sense for contributor-users. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs)
I have to agree with Jpatokal here. In *every* tourist guide, "Krabi" is meant as the beaches in Krabi Province (Ao Nang, Rai Leh, etc), not the actual Krabi Town. --globe-trotter 21:32, 27 November 2010 (EST)
The confusion has led to a large amount of Ao Nang listings in this article. I'll try to sort them out, now that the name is more clear. --Globe-trotter 23:13, 13 November 2011 (EST)[edit]

Although the apparent purpose of listing this in the Get in by plane section is to offer a way to get discounted taxi vouchers (online only), the site itself is of the "other guide" variety that we would usually delete otherwise. Any opinions on this one? Texugo 04:07, 18 June 2007 (EDT)

Krabi airport tax[edit]

I flew from Krabi to KL last week and only paid Bt400 departure tax. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Greenmango (talkcontribs)

Guide recommendations =[edit]

I'm just back from Krabi. Had a very good guide - reliable, reasonable discounts, got what we paid for. Is it appropriate to put a recommendation and his contact info here? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs)

Nope, tour guides and tour agencies for that matter are beyond the scope of Wikitravel per Wikitravel:Activity listings#Tour listings. --Peter Talk 16:35, 1 June 2009 (EDT)

Get Out Section[edit]

I updated the price (and colour!) for the songteow to the bus station, and also amended a first person comment. Avemario (talk) 04:56, 12 November 2014 (EST)

Krabi Town[edit]

I noticed an update done today in Krabi Town for the Sleep Club Hostel. It does not appear to fit in with our accepted format. Will someone in authority please check it out? Avemario (talk) 04:10, 13 August 2016 (EDT)

Hi Avemario, thank you for your observation. Yes you are right, the listing is not in proper format. And I have reverted the edit. Thank you for your reminder. Cheers! --Binbin (talk) 07:48, 13 August 2016 (EDT)
