When you go back to the same resort year after year, it says something about the place. The resort of course is Green Valley Resort in Tonsai, Thailand (address given as Krabi Town - not sure why). More and more non-climbers are showing up in Tonsai during the “’climbing” season. They come for the same reasons as climbers – incredible beauty, laid-back atmosphere, serenity, intense sunsets and low cost relative to other Thailand resort locations. Bungalows in Tonsai are ¼ or less the price than those in nearby Railay Beach. For sure the bungalows are different – think backpacker accommodations and at Green Valley – the better end of those available in this rather eclectic community. There is no air-conditioning, no hot water, but you’ll find a perfectly suitable fan and water slightly cooler than air-temperature, which is to say, “refreshing”. So refreshing you’ll take a shower every time you leave or come back to the bungalow and never regret not having “hot” water until you return to your home country. Summary: look to a secure location, excellent food, friendly staff, incredible owners, and prices well suited for budget travel. Costs go up in peak season as they do everywhere in Thailand (December-January), but very reasonable compared to other places. Book some days before coming – this is a sought after resort for all the reasons above.
