Railay Beach

Ao Nang, Mueang Krabi District, Krabi 81000, Thailand

Celebrating the New Year’s Eve in Railay Beach was an absolutely unforgettable experience. A paradise for rock climbers and beach goers alike, this small island located 2 hours south of Phuket provided such a wonderful backdrop for a New Year Celebration, which included lighting of fire lanterns and releasing them into the night sky. I was absolutely mesmerized by the sight of all the lanterns lit up and rising against the darkness and stillness of night. http://0dysseusjournal.blogspot.com/search/label/Thailand

We arrived during the Songkran Festival (Water Festival) The whole stretch of Aonang beach was filled with local & international tourist. We rented a scooter from the Aonang Beach Resort (really great place!) and explored the area. Halal food for Muslims are abundant, better than Phuket. People was really nice & helpful. Took a day trip to 4 islands. Went to Phi Phi last time we went to Phuket. Phi Phi is definitely better for snorkeling.
