How is Railay Beach in October?

by GracesTrips

Traveling to Thailand in October, the end of the rainy season. Wondering how is the beach at Railay during this time? I get the feeling in order to snorkel, we need to do excursions out to the various islands. How is the beach on the east side of this penninsula?
Thanks for your help!

I think the question is impossible to answer with any degree of accuracy. In October you take a chance with the weather and sea currents.

Re: How is Railay Beach in October?

by MVDELROSARIO

Weather is hard to predict but since it's the end of the wet season, I think you'll be okay. November is better, we were there that month last year.

A few things:
- Stay on the west side. The east side of Railay used to be a mangrove swamp. We stayed at Railay Bay Resort and Spa.
- Snorkel? Go to the other islands. But don't expect too much. Majority of the shallow reefs have all been destroyed.
- And expect a LOT of tourists.
- Phra Nang Beach is your best option in Railay but be there early in the morning to get a prime spot for your beach blanket.
- Limited dining options in Railay. Ravayadee has a couple of great, albeit on the expensive side, restaurants.

Travel Tips for Krabi

Tips for bargaining in Thailand

by iNorv9

Bargaining is part of the culture in Thailand. The vast majority of markets and small stores not only allow it, but expect it. That said, there here are some quick tips to get you started:

1) You can usually take about 30-50% of the original offer, so make your first offer below that range. This gives the impression of compromise when you eventually go up a little.

2) Be patient: You may have to invest a couple minutes of negotiation and walk away once or twice.

3) Shop around a bit first: Try to gauge the going market price to when you make your offer.

4) Learn some basic Thai: it makes you seem a little more cultured and less like a free spending tourist.

5) Most importantly, SMILE: Smiling is crucial - in Thailand it’s a sign of respect and shows that you're interested in having a civilized business conversation.

Good bargaining takes practice. You may strike out the first few times, but stick with it and you’ll get some great deals.

Bars

by leffe3 about Various

There are a few bars concentrated at the northern end of Ao Nang (just at the point where the road heads inland). Laid back and easy going with bottled beer and cocktails the order of the day. Most have outside drinking areas on the street - big comfy bamboo and cushioned chairs, music playing (loud but too intrusive). The @rt bar was our preferred choice (good cocktails) but the Reggae Bar across the road was always busy too.
There is the occasional rave organised, but this tends to be away from the main centre on a secluded beach and entails a boat trip. Shorts and T-shirts the norm.

Last Fisherman bar

by Cathy&Gary about Last Fisherman bar

The Last Fisherman bar is Ao Nang’s only open air beach bar, with tables on the sand and a bar under a thatch roof and a great selection of cocktails.

We visited this bar quite a few times as it was so relaxing sitting there drinking cocktails and watching the sunset.

It was also a great spot to be on those stinking hot days as you could have a swim then sit at the beach bar for more cooling off!

The Last Fisherman Bar is at the far end of Ao Nang Beach, just past Golden Beach Resort.

Keep walking along the beach on the pathway for about 50 metres and you will see the bar.

(Walk past the bar and there are loads of massage places as well)

Ocean Kayaking

by Jez79

Krabi offers an abundance of opportunities for water sports. A great way to explore some of the limestone formations scattered thoughout the ocean is to hire a kayak and paddle around. The bay around Ton Sai and Rai Ley West is fairly sheltered, so it's relatively easy to spend a few hours paddling around. It's hard to explain how awesome it is to look up and see huge limestone outcrops scattered with greenery (and the occasional climber) jutting up out of the ocean, or to paddle inside the caves and see fish swimming around below you. The water is warm, so if you want to get out and have a swim or explore some of the caves, you can do that too. Visibility isn't so good for snorkelling off the beach, but the scenery is great so it's just as nice to enjoy the view above the water. If you climb, you can tie the kayak to a rope hanging near the water and climb some of the limestone cliffs.

Prutiew Hot Spring

by vigi

In the south of Krabi province (around 70km from town and near the Khao Nor Chu Chi forest), are nature's own hot-tub jacuzzis. The water here comes from thermal springs, originating deep underground in volcanic chambers. Located in the jungle, this site features naturally hollowed-out 'bathtubs' in the smooth stone, filled to the brim with running spring water at a pleasant 35-40C. The mineral salts contained in the water are said to ease a number of ailments, including rheumatism, sciatica and skin complaints. Although these medical claims are unproven, the effect of simply lazing in hot water up to your chin, watching the clouds go by, certainly has positive health benefits. Tours to the hot springs are available from many agents, or you can rent a car and go it alone.
