World's Best Beaches: Railay

After relaxing in Krabi and enjoying the delicious street food and creepy mannequin scenery, we took a traditional longtail boat to Railay, a small beach surrounded by limestone cliffs. Railey is part of mainland Thailand, but since it's surrounded by cliffs, it is only accesible by boat. As a result, Railay is essentially an island. There are a few guesthouses and resorts (ranging from jungle huts with mosquito nets to ultra-luxurious hotels for $3,000 USD per night), a few restraurants and bars, and the most breathtaking beach I've ever seen.

I recommend going to Railey and getting in the water, floating on your back and staring up at the limestone cliffs. Railay is also a world-renowned climbing mecca.

Time essentially disappeared for the 3 days we spend in Railay. My activities consisted of swimming in the ocean, sleeping in the shade, and eating massaman curry (or yogurt, fruit, and muesli).
