Looking to go to Railay for an overnight stay at start of October. Going to be based in Ao Nang for couple weeks. Does weather ever prevent longtail boats getting round to Railay? Worried about booking in advance and not being able to get there in monsoon season. What hotel would you recommend - looked at Railay Princess Resort or Sunrise Tropical Resort villa or Sand Sea Resort? Is there enough of contrast to stay in Railay and see about it in 2 days rather than do one day trip? Haven't been to any part of Thailand before!
