Old Pictures of Krabi in the Late 80’s Including Phi Phi Don

Between 1987 and 1990 the American Jim Carter choose to serve as Peace Corps volunteer in Lam Thap, Krabi working with the Thailand Department of Agriculture. My wife was born and raised in Lam Thap, and thanks to my blog our World Wide Web roads were crossed and Mr. Jim could share his amazing story with me. Back in the 80’s, it was just the most adventurous traveler who knew about Krabi, and Jim had the good fortune to visit some places that are hugely popular today. Below are some pictures I have been granted permission to share.
