Book trips before we leave?

Wondering whether or not to book before we arrive in Railay. For example Speedboat to Phi/ Phi and island trips quoting 3600Bht on internet for two. Any cheaper at the resort?

Probably not cheaper AT a Railey resort but surely a lot cheaper on the Ao Nang main street, especially if you buy the ticket only one day ahead and walk away from the beach strip itself (half way up the hill the prices start fallling dramatically if you negotiate!). Also you might want to check weather forecasts before buying a trip; heavy rain or wind is extremely uncomfortable in a speedboat!

We always wait until we arrive on site as you can check what the weather will be like before you book.

We always book on the street in Thailand. you will get a better price and you can check the whether closer to the date you want to go.
