Fire Dancing in Tonsai

Fire Dancer on Tonsai Beach

Tonsai, Thailand

Next to the popular climbing destination of Railay you’ll find a more laid-back beach called Tonsai. It also boasts hundreds of climbing routes along the limestone cliffs. The pace is a bit slower here though, and the only electricity comes from generators. And only at night. Bars along the beach compete for your attention with amazing fire-dance shows.
