Railay or Rai Leh is one of the most beautiful places I have been to. Surrounded by mountains and high cliffs on the sides, one can spend hours at the beach and not get bored…. there are three popular beaches in Raileh.. the Railay East, Railay West, and the Phra Nang Beach… needless to say, all three beaches are great but if you have to choose one, choose Phra Nang… it looks breathtaking with the high cliffs and crystal clear water…you can also rock climb at the Phra Nang  beach…on the way to the beach there is a lagoon which is one of the must sees…yes, it is a short climb but you dont need to be an experienced climber to get there…

Now, the nightlife… there are a string of bars and restaurants near the Railay East Beach… the Last Bar is the hands down favourite with the travelers because of the great ambiance and live music… also there is a nice Indian place named the Utopia where apart from delicious food you can be a part of a whole range of nighttime entertainments like movies, snooker, and video games and stuff like that… Also the Walking Street nearby is home to a great restaurant and pub…

As far as accommodation is concerned, Railay has something to offer to travelers of every wallet size… I stayed at the Diamond Cave resort, costs about 600 Bahts and offers good clean rooms with Air conditioning, private balcony and bathrooms, TV and a big bed…Wifi is available at the lobby and is free of charge.

How to Get There

there are direct ferry services from both Phuket, Phi Phi Island, Krabi and Ao Nang…
