We rest really well last night, and only discussed our next adventure for the trip at noon. We asked around and brochures after brochures later, we finally decide that our next adventure will be to Railay Beach. Free & Easy, this is always the best. No schedule, no time constraint.
So we took a longtail boat by the pier to go to Railay Beach. It probably took us about 15 minutes and 60 baht per pax to get there.
This is us... excited and happy when we first arrived. But what happened next was unexpected!
You guess it right! It rained cats and dogs! We didn't take any pictures for obvious reasons, but it was the best time I had in a long time! We realized later that the last boat heading to Krabi is halt and will only resume the next day because of the heavy rain!
So we were kinda stuck, but let's worry about that later!
Swimming and meditating in the rain is so much for fun! !
This is the last picture I took after my batt went completely flat. Soaking wet from the rain, with no backup plan, no boat to bring us back, no cash and no place to stay, we figured we are going to make the best of our situation. Luckily, on the other side of this island (within walking distance), there is an ATM.
After searching for a place to stay for the night, we finally found huts for rent. Considering that we are stuck, we ended up renting 3 rooms, checking in at midnight and leaving at 7 am in the morning. We didn't have much of a choice, but it was a well-needed rest.
Secretly, I was really excited waking up on this island. I remembered coming here 11 years ago. It was nothing like before, this paradise used to be so quite with just occasional restaurants and nice accommodation, now it is more developed, with many touristic shops, bars etc. Now we even had to queue to buy banana pancakes.
So today, oh yea. We are going to Phra Nang beach, located near Railay East. It just within walking distance from Railay West. it is more popular and busier than Railay West during high season. With duvet-soft white sand, crystal clear water, coral reef, and caves, Ao Phra Nang is the perfect beach.
My favorite picture of me taken in 2007.
It's almost noon, time to head back to the main island, packed up and back to reality!
