Getting to Krabi

How to get to Krabi from Bangkok

What about

Krabi is a seaside province on the Western coast of Southern Thailand. The unique beauty of Krabi allures its visitors with limestone rock formations rising along the coastline; some of Thailand's finest beaches are found hidden along the bays.

Most of the province is made up of several national parks, and for the energetic traveller the rock climbing opportunities around Railay beach are some of the best in Asia. The province has over 80 islands famous for the diversity of activities and adventures they offer.

The picturesque coastline with its white sand beaches, coral reefs and lush vegetation make Krabi an essential beachside destination for anyone traveling through Thailand. It is also an important way point for accessing many of the surrounding islands via ferry.

Getting to Krabi

Traveling from Bangkok to Krabi overland is possible both by bus and by train. There is no railroad line in Krabi Town, meaning that you will need to make the final leg by bus. The combined train+bus journey takes a bit less that 15 hours in total; and the direct bus from the capital brings you to your destination in about 11 hours.

From Bangkok to Krabi by bus

Buses from Bangkok to Krabi leave from the Southern bus terminal, Sai Tai Mai. It is located on Phutthamonthon Sai Road in Thonburi district on the western side of the Chao Phraya River and is easily accessible by taxi. There are express and VIP24 buses of Lignite company, which cover the distance between the two cities in about 11 hours. An express bus ticket cost THB 648, while VIP24 is more expensive at THB 970. There is a morning bus at 7am, which is a worthy option for those who get off on the route, but to get to Krabi Town itself a night bus is a much more convenient option. Buses depart at 5.30pm, 7.10pm (2 buses), 7.20pm, 7.50pm (2 buses) and 8.40pm. There are also a number of private bus companies serving the same route from the Northern bus terminal in Bangkok, Morchit.

All buses provide snacks, air-conditioning and blankets and make several pit-spots along the route at large gas stations with convenience stores, cafes and toilets.

In Krabi buses from Bangkok arrive to either Krabi bus terminal near Talat Kao, about 4km north of Krabi, from where you can easily organise your onward journey to the islands, or to Nuea Khlong which lies 15km from Krabi by the Krabi international airport.

Getting from Bangkok to Krabi by train

There are no direct trains from Bangkok to Krabi, but it is possible to get package deals that include a train to Suratthani and a connecting bus to Krabi. Trains leave from Hua Lamphong station in Bangkok, easily accessible from the MRT subway. By far the most convenient train is the night one #85 departing at 7.30pm and arriving in Suratthani at 7.10am, but you have many other options, as well. You can choose the 1st or the 2nd class sleeper, both of which are air-conditioned and provide enough privacy and comfort for an overnight journey. The price is THB 1539 and THB 968 correspondingly.

Suratthani train station is located in the town of Phun Phin, some 15 km away. From there buses leave regularly both for Suratthani and other southern cities, including Krabi. If you book a joint train+bus ticket, you can catch a 7.30am bus to Krabi (THB 180, 3 hrs).

From Bangkok to Krabi by plane

Krabi is reportedly one of the most popular domestic destinations which sells first during special promotions period by any airline serving the route. But even without special discounts air tickets from Bangkok to Krabi are often amazingly affordable with prices starting from as low as THB1000 one-way per person. Travelling by plane reduces the time spend on the move considerably: from 12 hours to mere 1 hour 20 minutes.

Thai Lion Air, an associate of the namesake Indonesian carrier, flies to Krabi International Airport from the second airport in Bangkok, Don Mueang Airport. The company operates four flights from Bangkok to Krabi a day: at 6.45am, 11.5am, 3.20pm and 6pm. In the peak season it is hard to hit the lowest prices (THB1025) if you buy a couple of days in advance, but with a certain degree of flexibility you are in any case likely to find a deal under THB2000 with 15 kg of checked-in luggage and 7 kg of cabin luggage already included into the price.

In Bangkok Lion Air is based in Don Mueang International Airport to the north of the capital. To get there, use airport shuttle buses (routes A1 and A2). A1 starts from Morchit bus terminal and A2 originates at the Victory Monument, calling en route to Sanam Pao, Ari, Saphan Kwai and Morchit BTS stations (THB30). The latter is also served by A1 route. Travel time depends on traffic and is from 60 to 80 minutes. There are commuter trains between Hua Lamphong train station and Don Mueang airport, too. Trains take about 50 minutes to get from the railway station to the airport and are always a secure bet. Operating time is from 4.20am till 10.25pm.

Krabi International Airport lies 15 km to the northeast of Krabi Town. It serves over three million passengers per year and is waiting for expansion to increase its capacity to five millions soon. There are a lot seasonal international flights to Krabi airport from Europe and mainland China and an impressive number of daily flights between Krabi and Bangkok as well as some other domestic destinations including Koh Samui.

There is an air-conditioned airport shuttle bus plying the route between the airport and Krabi Town (THB90) and Ao Nang&Noppharat Thara (THB150). Normally these shuttle buses meet every arriving flight. If you miss it or do not want to use the service by some reason, take a songthaew which can be found along the main road to the airport. Taxis are also available (THB350).

Note that transfers to all possible tourist destinations throughout Krabi province are offered at the airport. Prices are usually reasonable: you will hardly find a better deal anywhere else even in Krabi Town, considering the time and money spent on getting to Krabi Town from the airport. If your final destination is Koh Lanta or Koh Phi Phi, do not hesitate to buy a ticket right on the spot.

Krabi beaches

It is not at all necessary to head to the islands to enjoy wonderful beaches of Krabi Province. Here are some ideas to have a great sun-and-sea adventure.

Ao Nang

The most developed of all Krabi beaches stretches out some 20km from Krabi Town. It may feel overpopulated, but it still preserves its postcard-like feel with limestone mountains looming as a backdrop and colourful long tail boats rolling on the waves. Nightlife and day restaurants are a stone’s throw away.

Noppharat Thara beach

A 3km long stretch of sand right by the side of Ao Nang remains relatively undeveloped. At low tide you can walk on sandy pathways in the company of millions of small crabs to the small islands close to the beach.

Railey beaches

Railey beach is an absolute must-see for every Krabi visitor. The two sides of the beach –the Western one and the Eastern one – are an ideal mix of crystal clear waters, pure sandy beaches and lush mountains.

Khlong Muang beach

This up-market side of Krabi is located some 20km further from Ao Nang. Khlong Muang resorts cater mostly for families and couples, and the setting is wonderful.

Tubkaeak beach

A place to hide away from it all. Long, clean and peaceful beach is complemented with breathtaking views of Koh Hong islands. It offers beautiful sunsets, too.

Your onward journey from Krabi

The whole Krabi Province is a natural wonder of limestone rock formations, transparent streams and dense mangroves, and Krabi Town is a quirky little town to savour the taste of provincial life of the South. It is also a convenient starting point for your journey to Phi-Phi (from two to 4 boats per day depending on the season; 1½ hrs), Koh Lanta (one boat per day from November to May, two hours); and Railey Beach (long tail boats leave throughout the day, 45 minutes). The same destinations are also served from nearby Ao Nang, where you can as well catch a boat to Phuket (4 hours) or Koh Yao islands (45 minutes).

Getting around in Krabi

Krabi Town itself is relatively easy to explore on foot. But for longer trips (e.g. Wat Tham Suea or Tha Pom) your own transport is a wise option giving you much more freedom compared to package tours from agencies.

Motorbikes and Scooters are the most convenient way to get around. Many guesthouses both in Krabi Town and Ao Nang offer quite a good fleet, which sometimes includes even the bigger ‘farang bikes’ (Honda PCX). Prices range from THB 150 to THB 300 per day depending on the model you choose. Note that some of the famous Krabi attractions are about 40km away from the city, and if you are not much of a motorbike rider, you may prefer to rent a car (THB 1500- THB 1800).

Bicycle is a good choice for getting acquainted with the city. Find them in many Krabi guesthouses (THB 50-THB120).

Songthaews travel between Krabi Town, the airport, bus terminal and nearby beaches. Prices vary depending on the destination and are from THB 50 to THB 100 for a seat in a shared vehicle. If you want the whole truck for yourself, agree on the price before you get on board.

Passenger reviews out of total 13,007 passengers traveled with us on this route

At 12Go our operators offer three types of service:

Cheap, Fast, Good - but you can usually pick only two of them!
Cheap & Fast won’t be Good. (e.g. buses from/to Khao San Road, local buses or 3rd class trains)
Cheap & Good won’t be Fast. (e.g. VIP trains in Thailand)
Fast & Good won’t be Cheap. (e.g. private limousine services, or VIP24 buses vs Express buses)

Make your choice! Please remember that though we are closely monitoring services, we are still an agency marketplace - meaning we focus on ticketing service and route availability / coverage rather than on factual seat recline angle you got today ^_^

★★☆☆☆ Dec 15, 2017 (avia Economy, Thai Lion Air) :
The airport building itself is nice and modern with air con. Not too long wait time to get bags for such a smallish airport. However the minivan/transportation service outside is the worse I have ever seen in Thailand in the over 20 years I have been traveling here. First off the people on the curb with the walkie talkies selling tickets are rude and pushy. They NEVER give anybody a departure time, just a faint promise you will eventually get to your destination. We waiting in a mini van for an hour to go to Krabi town which was a 20 minute drive. Good thing the air-con was on! On the way some lady called the drive who handed the phone to a passenger and was yelling at him that he didn't pay for his fare (but he did, he had his ticket in his hand!).

★★★☆☆ Dec 11, 2017 (bus Express, Lignite) :
the seat was a little bit hard but the price was low so ok
★★★★☆ Dec 10, 2017 (bus Express, Lignite) :
I knew that it wasn't going to be dreamy because it was a long ride (about 12 hrs), but I was positively surprised by getting free food at a stop, and getting a mini lunch bag at the beginning of the trip. The only thing that was terrible was the smell of the toilet, but even on the classiest busses, that's always a problem.

★★★☆☆ Dec 8, 2017 (bus Express, Lignite) :

★★☆☆☆ Nov 25, 2017 (bus Intercity, Songserm) :
It was raining before and water was dripping out of the air vents the whole journey making it difficult to sleep. It made no mention that we would be changing busses often and when we did there was no clear instruction which made some people panic. Also some girls picked up a sticker when we stopped once but not a bit of paper which meant that they had to pay an extra 50 baht when we got to the 'bus station' outside krabi. Next time I will pay slightly more and fly.

Everything was fine. Nice staff good bus.
★★☆☆☆ Sep 6, 2017 (bus Express, Lignite) :
The aircon was great. We were provided with a toro bun for a 12 hour journey which isn't sufficient enough to warrant the bus saying they provide food id have rather not been given anything. The seats were uncomfortable. The leg room was poor as soon as the person ahead of you puts there seat in recline you can barely move and I'm short!

Driver drove very calm and not too fast. Toilet on board. It does get a bit cold at night, so bring long sleeve T-shirt or jacket. Excellent trip. Only improvement option : provide a pillow.

★★★☆☆ May 7, 2017 (bus Express, Lignite) :
We booked seats randomly and those were just behind toilet. Smelled lots and no leg space at all. We asked the guy but he just said no even back seats were empty. Weve got some snacks for free but no coffee like other review.
★★★★★ Apr 29, 2017 (avia Economy, Nok Air) :
Scheduled on time
★★☆☆☆ Apr 20, 2017 (bus Express, Lignite) :
Quality the bus was abysmal. Both seats were broken. Our chosen seats were allocated incorrectly. Tour guide was unhelpful and really did not provide any service. Tour guide kept going for toilet breaks on the side of the road. We were dropped off in what seemed like the back streets of Krabi where we had to pay an extortionate fare to get to Ao Nang Beach. In comparison to the Bangkok busline, Lignite was shocking. Would not use again!!!

The ticket didn't state clearly that I needed to go to the desk UPSTAIRS first and then come back downstairs aftwerwards. Almost missed my bus. The VIP24 bus was very nice though (the seat gives you a back massage). Bring warm clothes even though you get a blanket. Snacks are free. No plug socket so charge your phone first.

Luxury 12 hour ride. Lots of space for your legs (even if you are 180 cm tall, ladies) and comfortable seats. We got a sweet filled bun with soya milk and a bottle of water for free. There was also packed a wet napkin. Air conditioning runned all night but there were available blankets. In the morning, the staff served us hot coffee. Also for free. Five-star experience.
★★★★★ Feb 16, 2017 (bus VIP24, Lignite) :
Extremely comfortable bus. Only downside is that TV (which you have in the seat in front of you) has everything sincronised on Thai, and has Thai subtitles. So if you don't understand Thai it's unusable. But everything else is perfect. You get to experience high standard transportation in Thai style.
★★★★★ Feb 12, 2017 (bus VIP24, Lignite) :

You get what you pay for on this one . Old and squeaky bus but it left on time and got in reasonably close to the estimated time. Friendly attendant and a tarro /soy milk +a bottle of water provided. I would pay extra for the nicer option on this long of trip if you have the budget if it this gets you there and is relatively painless.

Bangkok southern terminal hard to get to as it comes up differently on imaps, gmail and uber. We almost missed our trip after being driven to the wrong terminal (on the right road). We got on the bus and then had to get off on the side of a four lane highway and wait 40 minutes late at night for another bus to come which was very frustrating. Other than those things it was fine.

Pleasant bus ride. Budget friendly. Wished I'd had more info on how many stops we were making - I thought every time it was my stop...
★★★★☆ Jan 2, 2017 (bus Express, Lignite) :
The bus turned up just before it was due to leave, they don't really give you much info about when the bus is arriving or the schedule, you just get ushered onto the bus as quickly as possible then off. All in all the journey was much better than I expected, lots of leg room, chairs recline quite far and have a foot rest. They provide a blanket, bottle of water and some biscuits. There's a toilet on board but I didn't use it. They played Tarzan for the beginning of the journey which is dubbed in Thai, bit annoying if you don't want to watch it but they turn the TV off when it's finished. You stop after 3 hours then continue through the night.
