Krabi and Railei Beach

After the intense heat of Chiang Mai in Northern Thailand, we needed a little beach time.  We hopped a cheap flight down to Krabi Province for a stop before we head further south to Malaysia.  Spent a beautiful day at Railei Beach--an incredible spot accessible only by boat and surrounded by steep, tree-topped cliffs.  

How many tourists can you fit on a moped taxi?

All aboard the long tail to Railei Beach

Sea worthy!

Long tails are basically powered by a truck engine attached to a long drive shaft.

Karsts dramatically rise from the ocean--giving texture to the horizon

Look at me.  Look at me.  I am the captain now.

Land ho.
