Why Railay beach is the most popular
The Railay map does not reflect the actual terrain.
Railay beach is surrounded by karst cliffs that cut these gorgeous beaches off from the rest of the mainland.
Railay beach is quite popular among tourists as it is ideal for a quiet day trip.
A 90 minute ferry ride south of Krabi is Koh Lanta,
This is a quieter (though still popular) alternative to Ao Nang. The world famous Phi Phi islands are stuck out in the Andaman sea, reached by an hour-long speed boat ride.
Northwest of Krabi on the map is the stunning Pha Nga Bay sandwiched between Phuket and Krabi province, and it provides a photogenic seascape typified by hundreds of karst islands and pillars.
