    Hi there.
    I will be travelling to Krabi this early April.
    would like to know if I would travel from airport and stop at Kolobi Noodle for breakfast first before heading to Hotel at Ao nang what’s the best way or transport i could take? with affordable charges.

    Do airport taxi stop several stops with the same charge of THB500?
    Can i hop down the bus and hop into the next bus without additional charges?

      Hi KL,

      The bus is bringing you to your hotel and stops along the way to drop some other people to their hotel. It isn’t a hop on hop off bus system. You might have an advantage to look into a shared cab and take a cab yourself after you’ve been to Kolobi Noodle. (otherwise just go straight to AO Nang, there are plenty good restaurants in Ao Nang)

    Hi Paul, Iยดll arrive at Krabi airport at 11:40 pm, do you know if at that time will be possible to catch a bus or van to AoNang? Or maybe is better to book a Hotel at Krabi town just for a night and early in the morning move to Ao Nang? Thanks!!

      Hi Ketrin,

      The bus to Krabi Town and AO Nang will split, so you can take the same bus and later they will split the bus to Krabi Town and AO Nang. Have fun on your trip! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hey Paul,
    This is a helpful post, but I feel like the taxi vs bus option is 1 million times better. We took the bus today and it took almost an hour an half to get to Ao Nang. After that, they took us a small restaurant from where we caught the long tail boat, rather than the main pier. The long tail boat from the restaurant required significantly more wading than the normal pier which was tough with luggage. I cannot recommend taking the taxi enough – the bus option was almost a traumatic experience.

      Thank you for your comment Shivan! In some cases the taxi can be a great option too. Some people like to save money and don’t care about the time. I think it is an way way to travel and everyone should decide if they rather take the taxi or bus.

    Hello , we have a flight at 08:00am from Krabi airport, is there any possibility goes by Shuttle bus from Krabi town before 06:00am . THANK YOU

      I’m not sure about that, I would ask some local agencies on the day you arrive. Otherwise a taxi is always an option but more expensive. But as more people need to get the airplane I’m pretty sure there should be a bus. Have a great trip Josef!

    Hi Paul.
    I’m going to Krabi this weekend and will be staying at Ao Nang with my friend. I plan to go to Night Market at Krabi Town on my second night.
    How do i go there from Ao Nang? Is it ok if i rent a motorcycle? The journey takes about 30min.
    How much the price for tuk tuk?

    • Paul

      Hi Tasya,

      I can’t help you with that as I never made that trip. Best way is to see a travel agent and check what the local bus prices are. I can imagine that they have busses from Ao Nang to Krabi Town Night Market.

      Have a great trip!

    Hi! I will be visiting Krabi this November. I will be arriving at 5 in the afternoon, until what time the airport bus is available? Furthermore, are they going to drop us on our exact hotel or there are just drop off points where the bus will unload passengers? How to do about this? Shall I give the name of my hotel? Thank you so much. It’s my first time travelling in Krabi and i’m travelling alone. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Hi Flouise, You go to the desk at Krabi airport, tell them you hotel and they will bring you there ๐Ÿ™‚ (sometimes they do one separate stop to split the people from Krabi Town and Ao Nang) I’m not sure till when the busses are riding but 5PM shouldn’t be a problem! Have a great trip!

    Hi Paul
    I land in krabi on 2nd at 3 PM. I am keen to go to the full moon party can you help with planning this out.
    Where do i stay on 2nd
    How do i get to full moon party if i stay at ao nang
    What taxi/ ferry option do i consider and do i need to book anything in advance

    • Paul
      Reply

      Hi Karan,

      Where do you go to the Full Moon Party? As the big Full Moon Party is on Koh Phangan.
      Often people fly to oh Samui and take the ferry from there to Koh Phangan to visit the Full Moon Party.
      I recommend to book your accommodation in advance as often its booked out / only expensive accommodation left.

      Have a great trip!

    Hi. I plan to visit Krabi this week and wondering, how to get to Klong Muang from airport. Is there any minibus/taxi and what is the price?

    • Paul
      Reply

      Hi Colvera, I never did that trip so I cant help you there. As I look on Google maps the distance will be more or less the same. So I can imagine the costs will be roughly the same. Also another option is to get to Ao Nang or Krabi town and get a taxi there ๐Ÿ™‚

          Hi Franco, My advise is to just see what they offer on the airport ๐Ÿ™‚ If you may can negotiate a good deal a taxi can be cheaper that 4 tickets for the bus. Cheers!

    • Paul

      Hi Douglas, I’ve been there in August. Rain season depends, its still warm and sometimes a shower. There are a lot of options from Krabi to go to. Like the islands in front of Krabi for example. Easy to book boat tickets in Ao Nang.

      Have an awesome holiday Douglas!

    Hi, do you know what time the shuttle bus starts running in the morning from Ao Nang? Need to be at Krabi airport at 6 a.m. which means leaving Ao Nang before 5 a.m. Is it doable? Can’t find info anywhere. Thank you!

      Hi Dita,

      I don’t know but when there is an airplane going with more people from the region I’m sure there will be more minivans. The agents are working together to have the minivans full to the airport at that time. Just book it in advance ๐Ÿ™‚
      Have a great stay in Ao Nang Dita.

      There is no bus to Railay beach, you have to take a boat. You can book that on in Ao Nang or Krabi town ๐Ÿ™‚ Phra Nang I don’t know about. But it is easy to book the boat near the beach. Have a great time Lyaila!
