The next stop in our two week adventure to Southeast Asia was Krabi, Thailand. Krabi is located on the west coast of southern Thailand. We stayed at the Rayavadee resort that was accessible only by boat. The Rayavadee resort is located in the middle of 3 beautiful beaches. One beach is used mainly for arrival and departure and the other two, Phra Nang Beach and Railay Beach, are for swimming, snorkeling, kayaking and sun bathing and taking in the beauty of the geography and the crystal blue waters.
At the Ryavadee, we had our own private two story cottage that overlooked the beautiful pool and was only steps away from Railay Beach.
During our four day stay at Rayavadee, we enjoyed massages at their spa. We also book a few excursions through the resort. The first excursion was a speed boat ride to some of the surrounding islands. We snorkeled at Ko Phi Phi and enjoyed a picnic lunch at a beautiful sandy beach with crystal blue warm water. We also booked an excursion through the resort to go to an elephant camp and ride an elephant. That was a lot of fun and we ended up with a ton of elephant pictures. We really enjoyed all that the Rayvadee had to offer. We loved seeing the monkeys, eating in all the restaurants, swimming in the pool and we still can’t get over their amazing laundry service!
Many people we talked to, chose to go to Krabi over going to the more populated Phuket. Some travelers chose both Phuket and Krabi. If you are planning a trip to the area and are considering Phuket, I would definitely consider Krabi as well. ~Tiffany
