Tourist information about Reilly

Пра Нанг в Краби Phra Nang, Railay

The Peninsula of Railay (Railay, also Rai Leh) is located South of AO Nang in Krabi province in Thailand. This is an isolated resort area, although traditionally it refers to AO Nang (Railay Peninsula on the map). The peculiarity of the local beaches and all the Peninsula is that you can only get here by boat.

Reilly is a complete resort area where you can not only come for the day to relax on its wonderful beaches, but also to spend your entire vacation. Here there are hotels, shops, a pharmacy, a medical center, its party-walking street Walking street, and even a cash machine and currency exchange (but the exchange rate is extremely unfavorable, it is better to change money in AO Nang or Krabi town). The prices here are slightly higher, but the difference is almost imperceptible.

Reilly resembles a commune. After a few days of stay here you will all know and feel at home. But for those who want more space, movement and activities, it would be boring as all activity will be restricted to beaches, rock climbing (if you dare) and walk around repeatedly isogeny places. For fun and shopping from here will have to get to the boat in AO Nang or Krabi. Therefore, many tourists prefer to stay in AO Nang and Railay beaches get to relax during the day.

The Peninsula is home to several beaches, between which you can navigate on foot or by boat, and you can rent a kayak and swim between the beaches and the nearby Islands. No ground transportation is not here.

  • Западный Рейли в Краби West Raleigh

    West Railay (Railay West)

    – the main beach of the resort (on the map). Here is all the fun of the area. About the middle of the beach inland of the Peninsula out to the local Walking Street where you can find shops, pharmacy, travel Agency, coffee shop. But it's very modest, at a minimum. The beach itself is very good, and swimming is a pleasure, but during low tide the water goes away, it is impossible to swim.
  • Восточный Рейли в Краби East Railay

    East Railay (Railay East)

    – the swimming beach, shelter for cargo boats (on the map). The majority of hotels, the Peninsula of Railay is there. If you stay in one of them, even don't expect that you're going to sunbathe and swim on this beach, but thankfully, walk to West Railay or Phra Nang beach max 10 min walk.
  • Пляж Тонсаи

    Tonsai (Ton Sai)

    – a great isolated beach with the "commune" bekkerov (on the map). In General it is the youth and the most affordable district in Raleigh, so to say isolated place, which is accessible only by boat. In addition to blissful idleness here have been climbing since the conditions here are just wonderful. But the beach is suitable for swimming only at high tide.
    To get from East Railay it is possible for the path through the cliffs and jungles or at low tide along the shore. Boats from AO Nang if necessary, approach and here to drop off or pick up passengers.
  • Пра Нанг в Краби Phra Nang

    Phra Nang (Phra Nang)

    - a real gem of Krabi, the most beautiful beach (on the map). Hotels, cafes and entertainment here, but there is amazing white sand and beautiful views. But a lot of "touring" from AO Nang arrive here in good weather, why just always Packed in high season. But if you go further from the entrance to the beach, becomes freer.
    Here you can swim anytime, even during low tide. In the Eastern part is a local landmark – the Phra Nang Cave (Princess cave) Shrine and Phra Nang Shrine, filled with figures of the phallus. Here is great for learning rock climbing. Also in the shadow of the Eastern cliffs, you can snorkel and see fish among the rocks.
    To get to Phra Nang you can walk from East Railay path along the cliff. To East Railay with West, in turn, can also be reached on foot. All the way takes 15 minutes.

Hello! Because the island is quite small, from long beach to the South 20-30 minutes on the bike. But on the bike it is just too much, 30 kilometers to go, and even in the heat. I think not everyone will master, but in principle, if breaks and holidays, be sure to stock up on water, it is possible for 3-4 hours to get there, but it's so vskidku. Anyway in my opinion this is a dubious idea, if you consider it from the point of view just to get. It is better to use a motorcycle taxi. If you were a lover go and see this as a trip for pleasure and travel, the high rental would find no problems, everything is there. ...

Well, what about "to take a motorbike as not knowing how to drive" - IMHO forget it. If at least some experience was, you can. But without prejudice, I understand you girl. I will not impugn your abilities, but in the eyes of the distributors you just "girl", and even then likely to get a divorce you will have a lot more ...
Guest October 1, 2016
Thank you. Hence, it is necessary to select in absentia the most beautiful beach and the hotel next to it, so on the taxi ride :-(
Write something about Phi Phi island and about the island on which it is possible to go with Lanta on a trip. Especially about a desert, a jungle, "where many wild monkeys". There are? How to get how much, can I spend the night on some deserted island? ...

About Phi Phi, we will have relatively soon complete travel guide. For you to his side do not look, this is not Paradise island, and ravey. Quiet area it can not be called. On other Islands I can not say, went round a few of them along with the tour, there is always the beaches are always Packed, and bring Turikov boat for boat. But try to look at the Islands South of Lanta, there seems to be not so crowded. ...

If I remember correctly, the minivans stopped on the street jazz Alley in shopping centre Vogue. This is from the promenade with crab 15 minute walk. There is, in any case, everything is close, within walking distance. About pierce Chao FA not sure what to Lanta leave from there, or rather has always been sure that are not sent unless something has changed. And ferry tickets are not fundamentally where to buy, the difference is not big, and even if the Agency you transfer to will offer, and so will have to get. https://nashaplaneta.net/asia/thai/krabi-ko-lanta-kak-dobratsa ...

What places would you recommend for snorkeling with kids 7-10 years in Krabi ?
The distance from Krabi Town does not matter - have a car and are considering a couple of days to rent a house, but the duration of the trip on the boat/the boat I would like to minimize.
Perfect - do not swim if there are reefs close to shore would be ideal. ...
admin 18 December, 2019
Yes, like anywhere, there are no snorkeling on the mainland, at least I don't know. In fact there places to stay are limited to those that we have described in the guide, others do not. And the whole snorkeling on the Islands or on boats. ...
admin 18 December, 2019
Easier to just go to AO Nang, and there near the shore can cross-train and then by boat. ...
