Best Bucket List Idea in South Thailand is Rock Climbing

For an adventurous bucket list idea, you will love rock climbing in Railay. It is located in the Krabi province of Thailand. This region is popular for having some of the best limestone climbing routes in Asia, if not the world. There are many options which range from novice walls to difficulty levels to thrill even the most experienced climbers.

What makes Railay such a great place to go climbing is the natural beauty of the region. The beaches can be stunning. You can wake up at dawn and go for an early morning climb, then lounge on the beach for the hottest part of the day, then hit the walls again when the sun starts to go down. When you have worked up a sweat, having a tropical sea to dive into is a godsend.
