Long tail boats at Railay Bay

Thailand is beautiful. Nowhere else in the world can you find the mix of crystal clear turquoise waters, towering karst mountain backdrops and, of course, golden sand beaches. The different aspects that make up this seascape balance a serene beauty in the foreground with a bold, striking presence from the cliffs behind.
