Krabi to Koh Phangan Destination Reviews
Everything was great, but we had a long stop at Krabi busterminal until the other passengers get in the Bus. But we arrived in time.

Everything was great. We arrived with lots of time to spare for the ferry. Took a fifteen break on the way, so the journey was fine. Also, I was stranded by a no-show pre-reserved taxi to pick me up from my hotel to the bus stop. A phone call resulted in my being picked up from my hotel by the bus that we travelled to Koh Phangan on, which cost a lot less than the originally reserved taxi. Therefore, it was all super easy.
The staff at Phantip are really nice. The trip was spot on. The bus journey was really comfortable in a mini bus with air conditioning. The ferry wasn’t that great as it’s quite slow and you have to drag your bags up some stairs. Lots of room for a chill on the ferry though. For the price a reliable way to get to Koh Phangan from Krabi.

We were supposed to leave at 10am, we left at 10:30am, and supposed to arrive at 4:30pm, we arrived at 6pm.
The trip includes a minibus driving a little over 3 hours to a bus station, then another minibus taking us to the port. A 1-hour wait for the boat, and a 2.5-hour journey on the sea.
The minibuses and boat were pleasant, but we were given very few instructions, so we had to figure things out for ourselves and go looking for information. The minibus was full of suitcases, so we had to climb over them to get out.

Nous étions censé partir à 10h, nous sommes parti à 10h30, et censés arriver à 16h30, nous sommes arrivés à 18h.
Le voyage comprend un minibus roulant un peu plus de 3h vers une station de bus, puis un autre minibus nous amenant au port. 1h d'attente pour prendre le bateau, et 2h30 de trajet sur la mer.
Les minibus et le bateau étaient agréables, mais très peu de consignes nous étaient données, il faut comprendre par nous même et aller chercher les informations. Le minibus était rempli de valises, donc il fallait en escalader pour sortir.
