Night life moves
around the resorts of Railay during the week as each bungalow operation takes it in turns
to have a beach party. Don't miss the special atmosphere of a party at Railay Bay or
Tonsai Village where the sand of the beach is covered in people drinking and dancing until
the sun comes up. One of the newest bars on East Railay also hosts one of the best
parties, Viewpoint Bar, though not on the beach, is a large open bar with big balconies
where everyone can easily watch the mesmerizing fire-spinners or wince at the preformers
who use large pins and broken glass in an act that no-one should try at home!! The music
here is also excellent and suits the moods of the seasoned revellers that wait for the sun
to rise before heading home. If it is live music that's your thing Ya Ya's bar, also on
East Railay, has live bands during the high season, and is a good place to meet people.
NIGHTLIFE IN KRABI
Krabi does not compare to its westerly neigbor, Phuket, in the
entertainment market. There are no all night beer bars, ago-go bars
or raging discos. There is more of an open air pub/restaurant feel
to the nightlife.
Krabi has two night markets. Some stall open on Chao Fan pier, but
the real market is just off Thanon Sukhon opposite the city hotel.
It's populated by locals and tourist alike - and so avoids the worst
excesses of place like the Patpong night market in Bangkok. We were
especially impressed by the range of local produce and cooking.
Stalls were displayed with a real sense of pride. By taking a little
from a stall you can enjoy a good paradial grazing session.
