about a 3 hour drive give or take a bit depending on transport and mode. You can also catch a ferry in high season but I do not know how long/far this will take.

We did the reverse route Krabi to Phuket. We took the cheap option which was a shared mini van through one of the many travel places around. It was 200 baht each.

The nicer option would be to hire a driver to take you there. I am sure plenty of people can give you recomendations which would probably be around 2000 baht but gives you the option of stoppin g and looking at scenry etc when ever you like.

We have recently returned from a trip to Krabi and Phuket and hired drivers to take us both ways. The journey by road took just over two and a half hours (staying in Ao Nang) and cost 2500 baht each way.

Here are the e-mail addresses of each chap.


Sam is a really lovely chap, full of fun and great information. He came to collect us in his friends super dooper van. We also booked him to take us to the airport when we were leaving and his car is very nice as well.


Mai picked us up in a really old, noisy van with the back suspension going. It wasn't a very relaxing journey at all and we couldn't chat because of all the noise.

There is also a ferry that we used another time to get to Phi Phi. You will need to check the time tables for that - sorry.
