For my second post I’ll add some shots of the amazing scenery Thailand has to offer. Our trip was split between Railay and Koh Tao. Both were spectacular in their own ways. Railay is famous for its dramatic limestone cliffs that tower over some of the most perfect beaches imaginable. Koh Tao primarily known for it’s diving, is so much more than that, with dozens of very quiet coves surrounded by gigantic boulders and incredible golden beaches. The island is small enough to reach everywhere by motorbike, but rugged enough to keep most beach-goers away from the more remote destinations.
This place makes Leonardo DiCaprio’s “The Beach” look like the Jersey Shore. Hidden lagoons and secret beaches all over the place, plus a dozen or so WWII shipwrecks to dive. Such epic landscapes don’t even exist in dreams. I feel ashamed of trying to represent this place with mere photos. Oh yeah, the people here are awesome too!
