    Hi Michelle,

    Railay Beach and Ao Nang are the two spots that spring to mind as being within easy day-trip distance of Krabi. I also like Nopphara Thara Beach, which is super sleepy, but the waters are very shallow.

    If you just want to relax for a couple of days when you first arrive then stick to the mainland and do the islands later.

    Good suggestions from Somtam, you've got the full range there from sleepy to busy. Up to you what you are after really but I would recommend Ton Sai between Ao Nang and Rai Ley as it is quiet and relaxing with a couple of bars for good measure.

    If we fly to krabi, how easy is it to get to Railey? Are there plenty of places to stay in Railey or do you need to book ahead?
