Railay Bay, Thailand

Posted in General, Landscape, Travel at 8:00 pm by Warren Williams

Another long day of travelling, involving two flights (both with Air Asia), Phnom Penh, Cambodia, to Bangkok, Thailand, followed by a 4 hour wait, before flying onto Krabi on the Southern coast. I decided to travel via Krabi, rather than Phuket, to avoid the high tourist numbers.

The 10km journey by Long Tail boat took 45min, through some rough seas. An umbrella was offered to provide some protection from the sea swells crashing over the bow, but I still ended up drenched once again.

I stayed at the Sand Sea Resort for around NZ$75, but the views were simply amazing, the swimming pool refreshing and the beach side dining relaxing.

The epitome of Thailand’s beaches

    Thanks Helen. Bring extra cash! You may run out. £11 for a train ride, and most attractions are about £15-30 each – such as London Eye.

    Thanks Dave, may visit there one day again in a few years! Visited Loch Lomond today, (Scotland), a bit of a difference to the warm climate of Thailand. But very beautiful
