Phuket to Krabi Destination Reviews

Bus was comfortable enough, made decent time, Krabi bus ‘ station ‘ left a lot to be desired.
Bus VIP 24, Minibus 1996 (Minibus 1996), May 5, 2024
Driver left me on wrong place, after I told him about it he bring me to the right one but I was waiting for him and nearly I miss the train. He also try to ask me for money but I hope it was only some misunderstood.

Cheap and cheerful...on time
Bus VIP 24, Minibus 1996 (Minibus 1996), Oct 28, 2023
When we arrived at the bus station, it was easy to find our bus as someone greeted us straight away. The bus was very full so not much room. The Ac also didn’t work straight away but after about 20mins it worked and was fine the whole way. It took 4 hours overall as he stopped twice for a toilet/food break.
