Day 2 (25/12/15) : Phra Nang Cave & Raily Beach

We finally landed at the beach after half day cruising.. 

  • Phra Nang Cave – Is dedicated to a princess goddess named Phra Nang. According to legend, Phra Nang was an Indian princess who was killed in a shipwreck. In another tale, Phra Nang was the wife of a fisherman who was lost at sea. She lived out the rest of her days in the cave, awaiting her husband’s return.
    Today, local fisherman and boatmen leave offerings in Phra Nang cave to ensure safe travel on the sea.
  • Raily Beach – part of the mainland but not accessible by land only long tail boat services run from Ao Nang Beach & Ao Nammao Pier & Surrounding Islands.

Guess where's the Phra Nang Cave..

I ordered the famous Nutella Banana Pancake here
It costs me 600 Baht
At Ao Nang is 400 Baht

The sunset!!

As soon as the sunset, we were called to ride the boat. I think we only had 30mins at the beach. Hmm...

We had our dinner while cruising back to the jetty. Semua kelaparan, so no photos taken.

Before that, we had our last stop for bio luminescent swimming. Swimming / snorkeling in the dark??? No thanks.. Some mat sallehs did..

The boat man flushed few buckets of sea water on the boat's floor. We could see bluish light from the flushed water. That reminds me of my Redang trip.. the blue sand! The bio luminescent is actually referring to the plankton.

Finally, reached jetty at about 8pm.

At the jetty, after returning our snorkeling gears, the boat men entertained us with fire shows before we were arranged to go back to our hotel.


It was almost 10pm when we reached hotel. Please take note, the night market only operate until 10pm. I changed to dry clothing and rushed out to the night market. They were already started packing up stuff. I only managed to grab some Krabi t-shirts! *sigh*

Recharge energy for another 5 hours journey back to Hatyai the following day...

Nyway, thanks to Mariam Travel & Tours for the memorable islands tour! Look for their counter ourside 7-Eleven at Ao Nang.
