Things to do/daytrips outside of the Railay area (mainland)

My wife and I are looking to stay in the Railay area in early November 2012 and were interested in doing some things outside of the Railay area.

There are some interesting things listed on the "Kraabi Province Things to Do" page (tripadvisor.com/…TtD) and wanted to know if it was possible to do any of these things when staying in Railay.

Our concern is that you have to take long tail boats to get to Railay, and don't think it would be feasible to do day trips outside of the Railay area. Also, we're not looking to do any day trips to Phi Phi since that's where we are going after Railay.

You can take long tail boat to Koh Poda , Koh Kai (chicken island) , Koh Hong ,Pranang cave, Go to ao nang and to Krabi town and then take minibus to Koh lanta (if you want to stay there instead :P).

You can take longtail about 10 mins to Ao nang and catch minibus to Krabi town,in Krabi also have many nice place to visit like Nopparattara beach,Shell fossils beach, Sa Kaeo (natural ponds),Than Bok Khorani National Park (pretty far) etc.

The long tail ride to Railay only takes 15 minutes from Ao Nang so it wouldn't affect your decision to do any day trips. You will be able to book most day trips from Railay without any trouble.
