Yoga & Beach Life in Tonsai, Thailand.

After spending a few days in Khao Sok in the Jungle of Thailand I decided to head to the beach. After a lot of research I knew I wanted to head to Railay Beach or Tonsai Beach in Krabi so I booked a mini bus to Krabi which was only a few hours from Khao Sok.

I made it to Krabi town for the first time and found it to be a very hot, sticky, busy town. Luckily I met an English guy who had been around that area a lot so I checked into my hostel in Krabi (I decided to book a hostel for the first night so I could assess my options without carrying my bag around with me) and got a taxi tuk tuk to Ao Nang and then a boat over to Tonsai beach with him.

I had been thinking about staying on Tonsai Beach but I wasn’t 100% sure on accommodation prices an what there would be to do, but this guy was the best person to have met as he took me where he had stayed a year before before, we asked for some prices, I feel in love with Tonsai and the next day I headed back to Tonsai from Krabi with all my bags.

I ended up staying in Tonsai for 6 nights which is now the longest I’ve spent anywhere so far on this trip. It just had a really chilled out vibe and a young-ish crowd but not too young and there were 3 beaches you could visit.

Railay was the best of the beaches and very nice but it is full of resorts and people on holiday unlike Tonsai which is more for travellers. The tide around there is crazy, mid day it comes in really far and by 4:00pm its going out so you can walk between Tonsai and Railey Beach which saves you having to pay for a tail boat or doing the ‘jungle walk’ which is about an hour of going up and down a very steep hill and not that practical in flipflops.. learn from my mistake!

{I went to Koh Lanta after Tonsai and found it great for Yoga Options which are right on the beach, see what I got up to on another trip to Koh Lanta here – A chilled week on Koh Lanta and a 4 island boat trip.}

I wanted to do some Yoga in Tonsai and without realising it I ended up staying right opposite ‘Tonsai Yoga studio’. The teacher was a very chilled Australian guy and the classes were very hard..I was literally sweating for a full 90 minutes every class (although I was also pretty unfit) but they were good and I learnt a lot.

Update: I think the Yoga Studio I attended has closed now but Flower Of Life Yoga looks like it is open again so I would check them out for yoga in Tonsai! And remember that lot’s of the Thai islands offer yoga, especially Koh Samui.

My days in Tonsai ended up following a pattern of Yoga in the morning, breakfast and to get some wifi (as there weren’t many places with wi-fi which was kind of nice), visiting one of the beaches, lots of sleep and again the same day which I really enjoyed!
