We had heard and read about the beauty of Railay Beach, but no pictures can really prepare you for this stunningly gorgeous beach! Oh, my, god. It's expensive to stay on Railay Beach, so we stayed in Ao Nang beach and got a longtail to Railay. It's 100 baht each way to and from Railay, and they won't leave until they have 8 people - so you could have to wait for a bit. But it's so worth it! I'd actually like to stay on Railay someday.
