Railay Beach in Krabi, Thailand.

A day at Railay Beach off Krabi, Thailand.

Do you ever have days where you’re just sick of having to figure out how to do shit all the time? I definitely woke up on the wrong side of the dorm bed and didn’t feel like doing anything because I didn’t feel like trying to figure out how to do anything. I knew that off Krabi there were some awesome beaches, like Railay Beach, that are accessible only by boat, but I really didn’t know how to get to them, how to get one of those boats, and I really didn’t want to exert the energy figure it all out.

And so I resolved that I would just probably be the only person ever to go to Krabi Town, Thailand, and not go to any of the beaches.

I was hungry, however, so I dragged myself from my hostel in Krabi to find some food. As soon as I left my hostel door I was accosted by boat men chanting “Railay? Railay?” and wanting to take me to the beach. And so I said, “yes”. Because, really, they did all the research for me.

So I took a longtail boat to Railay Beach (also known as Rai Leh). I wasn’t quite dressed for the beach: I was wearing jeans and didn’t have my bathing suit. But I didn’t care. I explored the island that afternoon, walked the beach, admired the limestone cliffs, watched people rock climb, got hissed at by a monkey, saw what I can only believe was a shrine to dildos, ate fried rice made on a boat, drank a pineapple shake from a Hello Kitty cup, photographed, waded.


And I’m happy I made the decision to take the boat to Railay. To spend the afternoon exploring a new beach in Thailand. To fight through and actually do something in Krabi.
