How to get from Phuket to Koh Lanta

It is only 90 km between Phuket and Koh Lanta if measured as a crow flies but travelling overland brings the total distance between the two islands to about 240 km. Phuket, the largest and most popular of the Thai islands, is connected to Koh Lanta by buses, minivans, taxi and ferries. High-speed ferries and bigger express boats are quite popular on this route but can also be unreliable due to weather conditions. Also, highspeed ferries only operate during high seasons, mainly November through to April. During the low season, you have better chances relying on buses, minivans or taxis. Your preferred mode of transport will depend on the time you have, how much you want to spend, and what is available at the time.

From Phuket to Koh Lanta by Ferry

There are several companies that offer ferry services from Phuket to Koh Lanta. Two main piers on Phuket to board a ferry to Koh Lanta are Nam Chier and the Rassada piers.

At the Nam Chier Pier, a Chaokoh Travel Center ferry is scheduled to leave at 11.00am and dock at the Sala Dan Pier in Koh Lanta four and a half hours later if there are no delays along the way. Tickets cost THB 1,000.

From the Rassada Pier, you can board a Satun Pakbara Club speedboat at 8.30am or 12.30pm and alight in Ban Sala Dan, Koh Lanta one and a half hours later.

You can also use the Tigerline Travel high-speed ferry that leaves the pier for Koh Lanta Ban Sala Dan Pier at 9.00am. Whichever means you use, your ticket will cost THB 1,500.

Tigerline Travel, Sea Angel Cruise or Phi Phi Cruiser all offer an option to pick you up at your hotel in Phuket what adds to the cost of an ordinary ferry ticket THB200-THB250. Expect to pay for this combination service with the above mentioned providers THB 1,750, THB 1,400, and THB 1,200 respectively.

Tip: The Sea Angel Cruise ferry makes a stop at Koh Phi Phi and, therefore, arrives later than the rest. Phi Phi island entrance fee is 20THB.

Phi Phi Cruiser also offers an extra ferry that leaves at 12.00pm for the same cost. Soft drinks, water, coffee, tea, and snacks are included in your ticket for the morning trips, not the afternoon trip.

Tigerline travel also offers joint van+ferry tickets from the Phuket Airport to the Saladan Pier and Koh Jum at a cost of THB 1,750.

Whether you are boarding a ferry from the pier or waiting to be picked up from your hotel, ensure that you are there 30 minutes before your scheduled departure time.

From Phuket to Koh Lanta by Taxi

Travelling from Phuket to Koh Lanta by taxi takes about 5 hours including a short ferry ride on a huge car ferry. Though more expensive, a taxi will get you to Koh Lanta safely and with less discomfort. Phuket Transfer Travel Andaman and Lanta Gardenhill mainly offer taxi services for this route. Lanta Gardenhill transport provides services from Karong, Kata, and Patang to any hotel in Koh Lanta for THB 5,300 and from the Phuket airport for THB 4,500.

Phuket Transfer Travel Andaman offers 3-pax and 9-passenger class taxis. A ticket from any hotel in Phuket to Koh Lanta will cost 5,100 for the comfort class taxi and 5,900 for the 9-passenger taxi. From the Phuket Airport, you’ll pay 4,700 for the comfort class and 5,700 for the 9-passenger taxi that will take you to your hotel of choice in Koh Lanta.

Note: Remember to indicate the terminal you are arriving at when booking for a Phuket Transfer Travel Andaman taxi from the airport. If you are using the domestic passengers terminal, make your way to exit gate NO.1 and exit gate NO.3 if you are using the international passengers terminal.

Up to 120 Minutes of free waiting time is included for transfers from the airport and 30 minutes of free waiting time for transfers from hotel. After this, an extra THB 300 will be charged for every 30 minutes.

From Phuket to Koh Lanta via Krabi

A more economical way to get from Phuket to Koh Lanta is to travel via Krabi. Buses from Phuket to Krabi depart regularly from Phuket Bus Terminal and take between 3 and 4 hours to arrive and cost under THB200.

Once you arrive in Krabi town, you can then board a minivan from Krabi to Koh Lanta. Bus Cooperative of Krabi minivans leave from the Krabi Bus Terminal and arrive in Koh Lanta three hours later. Minivan tickets only go for THB 360.

Tip: When using van service, you may want to consider paying for an extra seat on the van if you have huge luggage. This is because most vans only have limited space and there have been cases where passengers with large bags have missed their trips.

Was chaos but was prepared. Stayed at top reading and sunning and enjoying the trip. Lots of tourists got sick they went down below. Couldn’t handle the top. Nice 2 hour ride. Once we got close I was prepared for the boat switch which I notice on reviews a lot of other blokes never are. Pshh. I use blokes as a joke. I’m Canadian I don’t use that word. Anyways. Went down and jostled for a spot that was able to grab our bags. Bunch of blokes try pushing you hold your ground. Anyways. We dock. My wife and I grab our stuff and make it easily to the next boat. We stay at the top which has nice cushioned seating. Able to put our legs up. Relax. Nap. Man it was the good life. This ferry trip was the Crack. Is that why Irish say. Anyways I’m not Irish. Cheers mates

I wish I could give it 5 stars, however, we had booked transfer from a nearby hotel (as ours was not an option) and given the pickup time of 11:00 based on our district. The earliest pickup time for the districts further away was 10:30 so we just decided to be safe and arrive at 10:10 to the hotel. It wasn’t until 11:10 that I called the hotline number that we were informed that they will send a driver. I am assuming the first driver must have arrived much earlier than pickup time and left or was running very late. Nonetheless we were promptly sent a new driver who was fantastic. We entered into a scene of fast and furious (safely of course) so that he could insure we made it to our boat in time! A bit disappointing on the organization of the original pick up process, BUT the awesome costumer service from both the dispatch and definitely the incredible driver made up for the overall experience!

Some bloke waived at us when we were about to have breakfast. When we were done he turned out to be our driver! So good start of the trip. The ferry was interesting, lots of people vomiting etc. But what made our trip 3 Star instead of 4 is that we didn’t know in advance that we had to transfer to another boat at Phi Phi. So when this woman started to shout “hurry hurry you need to get to the other boat quick quick” we still had to walk against the stream of people to the bottom floor of the boat to collect our luggage. You should try this with hundreds of people who want to get out en masse. After breathing the fumes off about an equal amount of 5 gallons of oil (they use one 10-gallon drum per return trip) we were super happy to arrive at our wonderful hotel. But.. we made it :-) Three Stars

Driver forgot to collect me. Pick up time was 11.30am, boat departed 12.30pm. After 2 phone calls driver eventually arrived 12.05pm. Otherwise, I found the process to be painless. Boat was clean and new-ish. Arrived in Koh Lanta on time.

There was only one hotel pick up location in karon which was the old phuket hotel. We waited for 20minutes at the entrance and started getting worried when our time was passed. Then we called the operator who told us that the driver was waiting for us at the hotel lobby. Problem was: the security of the hotel didnt let us through since we were not staying there. After 30min of expensive calls, we find the driver that insulted us for a good 10min, not hearing our reasons why we couldt meet him. But after that the journey was quick and we reached the pier without problem. The boat operator was great and the journey without problems.

Perfect, we had no problems during the cruise. The true is, that we had to change the boat at Phi Phi, and that wasn't clearly said on the travel ticket. But we always ask the people from the boat about the way. Also it could be useful to have information about time of arrival to final destination.

we made a stop in Koh phi phi which was not on the ticket when I bought it. It made the trip longer and more hectic. Also the ride to Koh lanta the driver was not paying attention and just texting his gf. Which got us off course quite a bit.

The hotel were I was staying was not included in the hotels listed for pick up, so I chose the closest one in the list and presented myself at Kata Palm Resort at 10:45. The email stated the pick up time was 11am. Nonetheless, we got a phone call at 10:44 to be told the driver had not found us and therefore left. Few minutes later we were called back again and reassured the driver was coming back. After a 15-minute wait, we called the operator, who got in touch with the driver and called us back again to say the driver had come again and, again, not found us (we were at the entrance on the main road, near the fountain, with available parking in front of us). I suspect the driver never made the U-turn to come back. So we had to reach the pier by private taxi (600 THB). I'd discourage anybody to pay for hotel transfer and just reach the pier by taxi: 600 THB for two people is anyway cheaper than 400 THB per person that the provider charges. The boat trip was fine and on time.

The speed boat journey was perfect. However the hotel pick up was a mess. Two times were stated for pick up, 11am and 11.30am. We were waiting at 11am. By 12pm there was no sign of any bus to pick us up so we rang the number provided. The lady who answered was helpful and got a bus to us within 10/15 minutes. It was empty, leading us to the conclusion that we had been completely forgotten about, rather than there being a delay caused by collecting other people.
