Krabi to Railey beach and the Ko Phi Phi islands

with 2 comments

The second and last outdated post from Thailand…

After the east coast party island mashup, we went to Krabi. We were told by a Spanish guy we met that we SHOULD try to spent some days in Railey beach, 40 minutes from Krabi town. So we did.

Riley beach...

Railey beach...

Arriving in Railey beach we were told that there is – except of the main one – another secret one, accessed by climbing a 20 minute up and down rock formation. So we did. With the backpacks it wasn’t that easy but when we arrived we saw it was worth it all the way! Small deserted place, 3-4 bars/restaurants by the beach and a beautiful scenery all around. We had arrived. The highlight here must have been that we kayaked for about 10 km to the opposite Poda beach and back – bliss! (and a bit of a challenge there for a change) 😉

Bamboo Island

Bamboo Island

Being there the name Ko Phi Phi was getting bigger and bigger in our minds. We knew about it; one of those things that are popular but you have to see because of their sheer beauty. We gave it a chance on a one day tour including; Money Bay, Loh Samah Bay, Pileh Bay, Viking Cave, Phi Phi Don, Hin Klarng and Bamboo Island. The famous beach of the film “The Beach” was there as exotic as you could imagine – attracting therefore a lot of non-exotic people. Snorkelling in clear waters and generally chilling did it for the day.

After this we were to take a boat taxi, go to the closest beach; Ao Nang and from there back to Krabi – this time to the airport for our flight to Kuala Lumpur and then to Medan, Sumatra in Indonesia!

Will I see Thailand again?
