Picturesque this place might look....Fun it wasnt!
Having journied back across to mainland Krabi we were left in a travel place outside of the main Krabi town and asked where we wanted to go. So following reccommendations we headed for Raylay beach. We hopped in a long tail boat almost losing balance wading through the water with our rucksacks. The lovely friendly boat driver (sarcasm) then screetched at us that we were here, so off we hopped. There was no beach as the tide was so high, but we were successful in finding pretty decent accomodation (which is more than can be said for some people!) even if it was slightly above what we wanted to pay.
WeÂ proceded to the beach andÂ realised that the tide had us trapped betweenÂ 2 cliffs, and the dense jungle behind was a no go. This wasnt a busy place, infact nicely secluded if u wanted secluded! Anyway there really was nothing to do. Our afternoon was spent playing draughts with chess pieces as we dont know how to play chess, and jenga. We soon decided that drinking was the only solution, and we soon bored of that too!
A little respite was found in the company of Josh, Michael and Abi, Londoners who also were trapped so they joined in with the drinks and jenga, but it was bed at 10pm having booked the 1st boat out of there in the morning.
Turned out we werent on Raylay beach after all, no, that was around the impossible cliff....
Phi Phi awaited....
