Rock Climbing

Thailand is a gem for hardcore and beginner rock climbing enthusiasts. Make your way to the islands Railey and Ton Sai where you can find the most amazing crystal clear waters accompanied by impressive limestone cliffs that tower over you.

Again, the courses vary in height and you can either get a guide to help you out for the day or you can also just rent equipment for those that are slightly more advanced. Just the sheer thought of swinging and climbing from one rock to the other while you’re suspended high up is enough to get me excited!
