Krabi to Koh Lanta Destination Reviews

Mini bus was so hot, driver drove crazy, was not an enjoyable experience, don’t usually get travel sick but did not feel good at all
Bus Minibus, Good Luck Lanta Tour, Apr 18, 2023
Contrary to e ticket information there was no desk or representative at Krabi airport and we were constantly accosted by other operators the gist of which was ‘lucky’ if yours turn up. There was not even a poster to explain that the e ticket info about collecting tickets there was bullshit. The bus was also late, ancient and no aircon. Honesty about your arrangements could save a good deal of anxiety!

We started early as everyone was already there, save driving and early arriving in lanta.

Bus arrives 20 mins late. We had to change to another minibus before the ferry. On Ko Lanta we stopped very often, therefore taking a lot of time. Bus was good.

The bus was 20 min late and took 2 hours in total to get to Koh Lanta main road, but the driver was nice and very helpful. Had to change the bus to a smaller one before the ferry, which was a bit tricky due to the luggage, but all in total it was worth it!
Bus Minibus, Good Luck Lanta Tour, Nov 5, 2022
Somebody called us two hours in advance to tell us that the bus was delayed to 4PM. When we got to the bus terminal, we found out they put us on another bus with another organisation that offered hotel transfer. All in all, we got to Koh Lanta, but with another organisation and three hours later.
