“too steep, cant get to the viewpoint”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2014

maybe the views are great, we'll never know - the only access trail is super steep, even with ropes hanging to help you get up it. Risky and extremely tiring. Not for us, not for everyone !

“Steep hike but worth the view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014

One of the locals described this hike as a walk up a hill to a view point. This is definitely not a walk. I was wearing sandals. I do not recommend it. The mud was slippery and the terrain very steep (they had a rope there to help you get up and down and you do need to use it). But the view is worth it, just wear proper footwear.

“Railay visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

Did not dislike anything really. Princess cave is worth a visit, as well as the beach at the end, which is very nice and very scenic.
There is a high view point but is hard to get to. For young, fit folks it would be no problem
