There is a large cultural festival going on down at the Krabi river area near downtown, near the police box on the main Uttarakit Road. Traffic is restricted totally at night – no automobiles can get through, and severely limited during the day time. There are many cultural demonstrations showing what life is like in all parts of Thailand. There are demonstrations for Muslims, Buddhists, farmers, etc. If you are looking for something fun to do, this would be something you can walk around and look at. Traffic is absolutely nuts this first weekend the show has been on.
Update – it’s over. Only a weekend thing. Strange because there was a LOT of construction for the booths. They are now tearing it all down.
