Day 191: Railay

Posted by Thomas Andersen Posted on Apr - 21 - 2011

Together with Pai from Thailand and Rick from Sweden I was heading out to explore the surroundings of Railay beach. On top of my head I can only come up with a few places in Switzerland and a beach in Mexico that could possibly compete in beauty.

Railay/Ton Sai beach is known as a climbers paradise. I’m not a climber myself but I found it very interesting to get to know the whole subculture. Very interesting group of people!

For those who think life in paradise is redicously expensive, I’m paying 150 bhat or 3.5 euro per night for my hut at the beach. It admititly only consists of four walls and a mattress on the floor, but what more do you really need?

I guess April is the beginning of the rainy season in Southern Thailand. While the days are beautiful, this is what you can expect in the evenings.

    With nights like that you do in fact need one more thing: A good roof over your mattress on the floor. But even if you didn’t specifically mention it, I assume that you already have that, otherwise I doubt you would be enjoying yourself as much 😉

  6. Very true! My 3.5 euro bamboo hut was surprisingly waterproof. I guess that’s a priority around here.

  7. […] To be on the lake was a nice change to be on the bike, and the million year old marble formations was a remarkable sight. They reminded both José and me of similar formations in Thailand. […]

  8. […] While talking about natural beauty, the beaches around Krabi in southern Thailand are hard to beat. A perfect place to rest the legs for a week or two. […]
