Speedboat journey takes around 40 minutes in a boat of around 20 people plus the luggage. We arrived at a plastic jetty with a wobbly walk to the bus which took us the 5 minute journey... More

This was my first trip to The Racha and certainly will not be the last. It is nestled on the hillside above the most beautiful bay of crystal clear blue waters and white sands.
