Maya Bay Krabi Thailand
This is the famous spot where Leonardo DiCaprio filmed 'The Beach' and it is shamelessly sold to tourists throughout the day tour. The waters are fairly clear, however, there's simply too many tourists about that it makes even walking difficult because it's so crowded. I was glad that we were only given 30 minutes here because I felt suffocated by the crowd- can't even take a decent shot without having a tourist in it.
Krabi International Airport Nuea Khlong Krabi Thailand
How to reach: You need to first fly into Bangkok. After getting your Visa on arrival at Bangkok, you need to take another domestic flight to Krabi International Airport.
Ton Sai Ao Nang Krabi Thailand
Rocking out: Ton Sai & Railay (5 days of a community you’ll never want to leave) Once you’re done with the beauty of Ko Lanta (if that’s such a thing) then head back up to the mainland. Boats frequently go from these southern islands to Krabi and once you’re here, you can either wander around the little town or hop straight onto a longtail boat to the bays around the corner from Krabi’s main beach, Ao Nang. Yes, this is a hectically busy guide. I didn’t say it was going to be a breezy walk in the park though! Alright, around the corner lies the awesome Ton Sai. I fondly refer to this as my slice of paradise as it’s a place that has drawn me back many times and I don’t care if I have to go alone. Surrounded by the towering limestone cliffs, Ton Sai is a teeny community of rock climbers and chilled locals. Electricity runs between 5pm – 5am and every guest house will look after you like you’re their first-born child. After two days, you’ll know everyone’s name; after four days you’ll cry at the thoughts of leaving your new family. Try some rock climbing on many of the cliffs or if you have no upper-body strength, lie flat on Railey Beach. Stay in Ton Sai for the vibes and cheap accommodation, climb over the secret cliff to Railay for the huge white beach. I feel a bit sad to tell everyone about Ton Sai, but that’s because I’m a bit selfish and want to keep it to myself…
