We’ve spent the last 4 days on the Railay peninsula. This place is pretty spectacular. We’ll go ahead and just apologize in advance for posting too many pictures.
We loved our bungalow.
Ty really enjoyed the working environment here.
Took a day trip to a few islands. This one is Paradise Island
Fay is starting to appreciate the beauty around her.

Low tide unfortunately reveals the downside to parts of Railay. Trash.

The Railay Experience: We loved it here. The highlight was rock climbing at Phra Nang Cave Beach. We’ve never climbed in such a unique and beautiful location. The Railay peninsula is only accessible by boat due to the massive cliffs that cut it off from the rest of the mainland. As a rock climbing and backpacking mecca, the village is defined by large portraits of Bob Marley and rasta flags. It is one of the most beautiful places we have ever been, it’s a rock climbing mecca, and it’s in the perfect location to visit outlying islands. Sounds pretty much perfect right? Well, not quite. The natural beauty of the island truly is stunning, but construction and trash in the village is really an eyesore. Such a shame to see people not being wise stewards of such an incredibly gorgeous place. If you don’t mind feeling a little grungy, however, Railay is an experience that should not be missed.
