Probably too late to get to Railay then. If you want a nicer beach, but less restaurants, bars and shopping then Railay would be the choice, otherwise Ao Nang has a greater variety or restaurants, bars etc, but the beach isn't as nice as Railay Beach, but does have nice views and is a good base for tours.
