Located in Ban Thapli, Tambon Lamu at Km 545 on Highway 4, 66 kilometers northeast of the town center,
the Kra is the Malayan Peninsula's narrowest point, spanning a mere 44 kilometers from the Gulf of Thailand
on the east coast to the Andaman Sea on the west coast. There is a large cement map to help orient visitors.
The Kra provides an excellent vantage point from which to see the Kra Buri River forming a natural boundary
between Thailand and Myanmar
