Beautiful place

Amazing place that you should definitely visit. Best part is the beach, which is the chillest place on the island.

Duvet-soft sand, clear shallow water for safe swimming. Just perfect for what you looking at! This beach also has a backdrop of picturesque limestone cliffs that provide natural shade from the hot afternoon sun. wow what a view to have!! Stunning!! even great for photography!!

This place is very much crowded and highly priced.. if you are looking for a lively tourist place, this is best. If you are looking for a serene place, then look for alternative place.

Very busy area at night, it is a lot quieter in daylight hours. All types of food, drink, music and other attractions catered for.

Each year I come here three times and every time I visit, I like to choose Railay Beach. I have a feeling that the atmosphere here is very good and safe journey was not difficult. I got off the plane at the airport in Krabi and the airport bus to Ao Nang. Cheaper than a taxi and safer, too.

Visited Feb 2-7, 2016. Enjoy the view of the dramatic limestone cliffs and the convenience of the amenities available such as a variety of eateries ranging from restaurants to street food, western chains like Starbucks and McDonald's, convenience stores and mini marts, have very realistic expectations of the beaches and quality of food and you should have a contented vacation...

Honestly? It's our fault (Western tourists).....this place is just naff. Crowded beach, open sewers into the sea, pizza places and lots of hapless tourists ripe for ripping off. Myself included!! If it wasn't for my partner having dysentery (thanks Koh Phi Phi) we'd have been off straight away. I could earn more here as a tuk tuk driver than I... More
