6.) Susan Hoi (Krabi Shell Cemetary)

Krabi Shell Cemetery is one of the oldest places to visit in Krabi. Dating back to around more than 40 million years ago, the 200-meter stretch of fossilized shells came to be when limestone deposits in the surrounding water covered the shell fish and fossilized them. It is one of only the three cemeteries like so found in the world today. If you happen to be a geology nerd and this is your thing, then this shellfish cemetary is definitely the place for you! There is also a nearby Chinese temple which you can visit as well as mangrove forests in the area, but there is nothing quite like this one-of-a-kind cemetary
