Well what can I say, just the most stunning view but make sure you do it early before it gets too hot and wear decent shoes. The actually climb does look a bit daunting when you see the start but there is honestly nothing to worry about. There are ropes which are there to aid you in pulling yourself up if you require them. One thing I would suggest though is to carry some water and don't wear good clothes. Your hands will be a sort of an orange colour once you have finished and parts of your clothing if you sit down for a rest.

You MUST do this when you come to Railay. The photo you take will be an instant winner and will hit all your social media feeds as soon as you get back to your precious wifi signal. I'm speaking from experience of course. ;)
But seriously, the view is worth the short steep climb. Shoes recommended but not needed. Something closed toed (like my Sanuks) worked fine. Usually lots of people up there in the small space, but take your turn, get your photo, enjoy the view a minute, then get out of the way. Proper tourist etiquette kids!

Climb is steep but short. Fully enclosed and secure footwear recommended. We did the climb with a one year old in a backpack so it was slow and steady but do-able. Go left at the fork at the top of the climb for the view point and right for the lagoon. Lagoon track is quite tricky and not possible with a little one. Worth the effort down if you can. Kind of feels like you're back in time with the dinosaurs.

I actually did this by going rock climbing. It makes the view that much more impressive having climbed a cliff. The cliff is called Taiwan wall. The views are awesome! It gives u a great perspective of the whole of Railay Bay.

This is to awesome. You can see clearly view from top of this Railay. Can't describe how the feel when you reach at the lookup point. You can see Poda island,Maya, Koh Phi Phi and many more surronding this Aonang area.
