Getting to Krabi

Both getting to and getting around Krabi is quite easy. Visitors to Krabi may arrive by air, bus, car, or boat from destinations both north and south of Krabi, as well as from Phuket and Phang Nga provinces to the west of Krabi.

Taxis, songtaews, and tuk-tuks are easily found in both Krabi town and Ao Nang and are reasonably priced for those who wish to explore the nearby attractions, though visitors may also rent cars, motorbikes, and even bicycles to tour the area on their own.

The only way to get to Ao Nang Cape, including East and West Railey and Phra Nang Beach, is via boat from Krabi Town, Ao Nang, Koh Phi Phi, or Koh Lanta. There are no roads leading to or around Ao Nang Cape, which can only be explored by foot or kayak.

Recommended Transportation



1 By Boat

By Boat Tourists can take a boat at Chao Fa Pier or Klong Jilad Pier. There are several trips departing for Phi Phi Island daily. The trip takes about 1.30 – 2.30 hours, depending on whether it is an express boat or standard boat. Boat tickets are available at the pier or from travel agents. Boat services from Ao Nang to Phi Phi Island are also available during high season, from November to May.

If you want to get to Railay, long-tail boats leave from Krabi’s Khong Kha pier to Railay East from 07:45 am. - 06:00 pm. from Railay East it is only a five-minute walk along a paved path to the more appealing Railay West. The boatmen will wait until they can fill a boat with 10 people before they leave; if you want go before then you can charter the whole boat.

2 By Bus

By Bus There are both government run air-conditioned and non air-conditioned busses that connect Bangkok, Phuket, Phang Nga, Trang, Hat Yai, and Surat Thani (Samui) to Krabi Bus Terminal. The bus from Bangkok’s Southern Bus Terminal to Krabi takes approximately 12 hours.

In addition to these busses, many private bus companies and travel agencies provide air-conditioned busses or vans to and from Krabi and these other provinces.

Bus-boat packages between Krabi and Koh Samui should take no more than three hours, though some unscrupulous private bus companies have made this a lengthy ordeal in order to rip off passengers and their stored baggage. There is a more reliable government run bus service between Krabi and Surat Thani which requires bus or tuk tuk transfer to or from the pier that services Koh Samui.

There is a regular shuttle bus service between Krabi and Phuket airports, which are roughly 2 hours apart. Timetables

1 Ao Nang

From Ao Nang this is a very simple process. You talk to a boatman, identified by their numbered and coloured shirts, who will tell you to buy a ticket from one of two booths on Ao Nang beach at 80 Baht per person. When there are 8 people wishing to go you will be escorted to a longtail boat and captained around the dramatic limestone karst headland. You will arrive 15 minutes later, at Railay or Tonsai. If you are lucky, at high tide the boat arrives right on the beach, but if the tide is out then you will have to wade to the beach from 50 metres out. You will get at least your feet and calves, and possibly your bottom, wet.
