We are travelling to Railay Bay in November as part of some backpacking we are doing throughout Asia. Coincidently, there are 6 friends on a week long holiday staying at Railay Bay Resort and Spa at the same time.
We are looking to stay nearby so we can spend time together but due to our budget we can't afford to stay at the resort with them.
I have heard the East Beach of Railay is the cheaper option but am finding it difficult to find places there that would still be close to the West side where are friends are staying. (How far is it from the East side to the West? Is it feasible to walk the distance?)
Any help or recommendations would be appreciated!
