Presentation Ban Koh Klang Community

Thai name : บ้านเกาะกลาง
My opinion:
Ban Koh Klang is a community that lives on an island on Krabi River near Krabi Town. In this local community, you can go to see a batik workshop, a technique of dyeing fabrics based on melted wax and make your own creation, discover the rice fields and the special rice that people cultivate here, see a manufacturer of miniatures longtail boats, the traditional Thai boat, and eat in a good restaurant. It is an interesting visit away from mass tourism because if Thai tourists come there a lot, only very few foreigners know about this place.

If you can get to Koh Klang island in 10-15 minutes from Krabi Town by taking a longtail boat from the Chao Fah Pier which hosts a nice little night market every evening or the Giant Crab statue, I recommend you take a more complete boat tour which goes to Khao Kanab Nam, the two most famous rocks of Krabi river, their cave and its monkeys and the mangrove tunnel that at the end open on ... Ban Koh Klang ! The boat tour with visit to the highlights of the island generally takes half a day. You can also choose to stay there longer and even sleep there. There are several guesthouses or homestays like the Nisarine Hostel

Practical information about Ban Koh Klang Community

Once on the island, you can hire a tuk-tuk for up to 3 people for 300 THB for half a day. It seems that visitors can also rent bikes but the batik workshop is quite far away so I recommend the tuk-tuk option.
The price to paint your batik creation is 50 THB per person.
I recommend that you call, or more precisely have the reception of your hotel call for you because he only speaks Thai, Ban Ko Klang community headman on 087 264 0347 (mobile phone) before coming to make sure that everything will be open when you go. At weekends, this is generally the case because there are quite a few Thais who come there, but during the week days, it is better to call.

How to get to Ban Koh Klang Community ?

To come to Koh Klang Island, go to the Chao Fah Pier or the pier behind the big Crab statue in Krabi Town and hire a longtail boat. In general, the captains there are from Ban Ko Klang precisely. A 3-4 hours tour that goes to Khao Kanab Nam, the cave and the mangrove tunnel before dropping you off at Ban Koh Klang and then waiting for you when you visit the island and bring you back to town, is negotiated around 1600 THB by boat.
