About Krabi

甲米府的面积为4708平方公里,算是国内排名第46大的府。大多地区为山峻、高地、平原以及将近130个大大小小的岛屿,湾口和周围的群岛遍布着物质繁盛的红树林。考帕喃本杰山(Panom Benja Mt.)为甲米府最高的山(海拔1397米),同时也是巴加塞溪(Klong Pakasai)、大甲米溪(Klong Krabi Yai)和小甲米溪(Klong Krabi Lek),三条甲米府重要水路的源头。从甲米府的考古探究追溯到最古老的历史证物为约27000-37000年前的莫桥洞(Mho Khiaw Cave), 发现这里曾经是史前的古代村落。莫桥洞里挖掘到许多石器时代的工具。尤其在垦腾县(Amphoe Klong Tom)的数个岩洞里的墙壁上发现古代壁画,譬如:大头鬼洞(Pi Hua Duo Cave)。除了是古代村落的旧址外,甲米府还可能是从西边过渡到东边的马来西亚半岛的必经之地,同时也是当时的贸易中心。在垦腾县(Klong Tom)挖掘到的大量古代珠子为重点证物。直至历史时期,历史家臆断甲米府曾经是12星城之一的班泰撒莫城(Baan Thai Samoh City),隶属单马令王国(Tambralinga kingdom)一个建立于现在的洛坤府(Nakornsritammarat Province)的古代王国。单马令古代王国的国徽为猴子同时这个社区一直有百姓居住直到曼谷王朝前期。踏浪君府(普吉岛的旧称)被缅甸敌军烧毁后,甲米代替踏浪君府被发展为港城。这期间的班巴加塞村经常有人进来抓野象造成人口大幅流动来这里居住,之后慢慢变成社区再转变成都城,名为巴加塞都城。后来因为原本的位置在内陆对水路的买卖交流造成不便所以就迁城到位于甲米河口的海边。到了1873年,拉玛五世下旨意把巴加塞城区提升为君府并且赐名为“甲米君府”隶属洛坤道。在1896年移到普吉道的隶属下,直到1901年再次迁址至到如今的市政厅位置。1933年拉玛六世朝代,甲米君府升级为甲米府,同时在行政上划为8个县区,有甲米府直辖县、奥律县、拜拍耶县、考帕农县、空统县、兰它县、阁兰大县和尼空县。
