Why Railay Bay is special ?
Railay Bay has many small general convenience stores with various essentials at reasonable prices, considering shipment costs to what is essentially an island. Though most shoppers (souvenir or otherwise) will be better satisfied in nearby Ao Nang, clothing, souvenirs, beach wear and such are all also available in various small shops in Railay East and Railay West. There are no real grocery vendors, so meals are limited to the restaurants, though some small snack items are available in the convenience stores.
What to explore at Railay Bay?
If you’re in the market for hippy paraphernalia, secondhand books and the like then Railay East is for you. Interspersed between the pancake vendors, restaurants and bars you will find several small vendors selling beads, flip-flops, wooden souvenirs, Frisbees, beach bags and beach-tennis gear.
Near the Sunrise Tropical Resort – on the concrete footpath along the mangroves - there is a block of five shops including the area’s only pharmacy (open from 09:30 – 23:00), an optical shop (Railay Optic, open from 09:00-21:00), a mini-mart, a rock climbing school (Tex Rock Climbing), and even a tailor (Armani Tailor). In between the beaches in Railay Bay Resort stands an ATM machine and a mini mart selling just about everything you could possibly need for your stay at seriously hiked-up prices. This is because the resort owns the shop.
