My wife & I will visting thailand by month end starting with 4 days at Koh Lipe. From there onwards, we are very keen on staying at Phra Nang Beach or railey west beach. I couldn't find cheap & clean hotel (around 500 bhat, double with fan) on Phra Nang beach, specifically. Only star hotels available? Anybody got any clues. If there isn't cheap accomodation on Phra nang, than I would prefer to stay on Railey west, any suggestions for the cheap hotels here? What about local boats to island like Koh Poda or Chicken islands?? I can't afford a charter boat for the day & I can't travel in a boat that tells me, that you only have an hour to spend on this island? Do these boats depart from Railey east or west or Phra nang beach? Any idea about the costs?
