For the ones of you who liked and follow me on Facebook, you know that it was a crazy week when I was in southern Thailand! Next to being a travel blogger I currently work as a marketing consultant in Bangkok. One of my jobs was in Krabi where we were doing a video and photo shoot for a resort. On the last day we luckily had a day off and some of the crew decided to take one of the long tail boats and check out famous Railey Beach.
Spontaneous change of plans: Long Tail Boat to Tonsai Beach!
Update: Many of you have asked where I stay when I visit Tonsai Beach. I always stay at the Tonsai Bay Resort, a cheap, clean and safe place right by the beach. It’s great!
Right before arriving at Railey Beach one of the crew mentioned that Tonsai beach was better and less crowded and we immediately changed plans. Luckily!!
We arrived at a quiet beach with some bars and restaurants and walked over to one of these hippie bars where we enjoyed a nice cold beer!!! We then just sat there and enjoyed the beautiful weather, the blue water and the hot sun!
The wind hitting our faces every now and then cooled us off when the sun was getting too hot and a laid back Thai served us ice-cold beer and fresh coffee. The travelers we met there were some of the most relaxed people I met since a long time. Of course half of them were stoned, but it didn’t matter… I just enjoyed the situation after 5 long days of shooting!
Is Leonadro Dicaprio going to wake me up?
The long tail boats at the beach added an additional flair to the whole situation. Suddenly I felt like in one of these movies filmed here in Thailand. Maybe a stoned Leonardo Dicaprio would jump out of the bush behind me and telling me to wake up… but it didn’t happen, I was actually there and tried to enjoy it to the fullest!
We only stayed for a couple of hours but I know that I will go back and stay longer to fully enjoy the beauty of this place!
If you are looking for accommodation stay at the Tonsay Bay Resort!
