3 Amazing Days in Railay

We have arrived at Krabi Airport after a short 2 hour flight from Chiang Mai…..time for some serious beach time!

I decided I wanted to stay in Railay and be a little more secluded from the mainland, that meant a 30 min taxi ride to the dock and 15min long tail boat ride before we would arrive in Railay. Once we arrived, I was so happy with my decision! Railay is so beautiful and the limestome cliffs are seriously jaw dropping.

I stayed at the beautiful  Avatar Railay Resort located on the east side of Railay. Railay Beach is dived between west(beach) and east(no beach), west is more lively but it seriously takes about 5 mins to get to either side.

Our time at the island was completely different from being in the cities. It was more about relaxing and laying out!


Day 1

-Checked Into Avatar Railay around 3pm

-Lunch and Drinks


-Epic Sunset on Railay Beach

Day 2

-Railay Viewpoint and Lagoon Hike (A must)

I love challenging hikes so when I saw that this hike consisted of ropes, ladders and a vertical incline, I was in. The view from the top though is breathtaking, but just remember I did warn you!

-Railay & Para Nang Beach

-Explore The Local Caves

Day 3

-Island Hopping

Spend the extra money and book with Big at Krabi Castaway Tours you will not be disappointed. They provided snacks, drinks and the most epic picnic lunch on the beach!!

I really enjoyed my down time in Railay it was much needed after our packed filled days in Bangkok and Chiang Mai. My only warning about Railay is…. be careful with the monkeys!! haha

Although I was sad to say bye to Railay the next morning, I was beyond excited to visit our last stop…….. Koh Lipe!!

Wander Often, Wander Always
