Travel to Thailand Tips:
Grab a bite to eat anywhere along Tonsai beach or Railay Beach.
If you are staying on Tonsai (due to low tide you can’t get there at night) make your way along the beach and enjoy all of the great bars, each one is unique and a guaranteed good time!
Railay West has some great restaurants along the beach and inland too.
Enjoy the Rock & Fire International Competition which is held yearly in the winter.
Just remember this is island time and no one is in a hurry. They don’t know what ASAP means so relax and enjoy the laid back atmosphere. It is amazing!
Bring bahts with you, not many places available to exchange money here.
Everything is really inexpensive for a beach location.
Use backpacks for luggage since you are getting in and out of boats and there are no docks at most of these locations.
Make sure to lookup the immunizations needed before traveling.
Stock up your first aid kit and bug spray before traveling.
And remember, you are in the jungle, lots of crawlers and bugs and monkeys everywhere.
Lastly, don’t forget your climbing gear!
Enjoy your travel to Thailand! I promise you will go back again.
