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 35,431 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 ^_^

★★★★★ May 17, 2017 (train #167 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Alles lief sehr gut ab. Die Abholung im Office von 12Go Asia lief reibungslos ab und sie haben mir sogar mit einem Problem mit meiner Thai-Simkarte geholfen. Sehr hilfsbereit. Wir würden immer wieder über 12go Asia buchen. Der Zug war etwas älter, dennoch war es super darin zu schlafen. Temperatur war genau richtig.

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.
★★★★★ May 7, 2017 (train #167 Class II Sleeper Fan, Thai Railways) :
Very nice experience. Thank you for your service.
★★★★☆ May 7, 2017 (train #83 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Ticket collection from 12go Asia was seamless. Great service. The #83 train was pretty old as it was built in 1996. Almost 20 years ago! Hence it was evident that it was pretty run down and dirty, at least for my seat which was just to the toilet. Small cockroaches can be seen crawling everywhere most of the time. Even saw one on my bed when I woke up in the morning but you will just have to deal with it. Food on the restaurant train was decent but be careful of flying insects landing directly inside your meals. It was generally cold and comfy throughout the journey. The crew also made sure to wake you up about 10 minutes before your arrival. Overall a great experience but would not try again haha, at least with the older trains.

★★★★★ Apr 21, 2017 (train #167 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways)
★★☆☆☆ 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!!!

Good service, all clean andneat
★★★☆☆ Apr 10, 2017 (train #85 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
12go service was excellent, fast and very helpful. The staff on the train were kind. My complaints would be the air conditioning is set to freeze your balls off. I hadn't packed any long sleeve clothes and I was shivering also. Without a phone I wouldn't be able to know where I was during the trip. I wish theré was a way to know where we are and when exactly we arrive. Other than that great trip. Pack some warmer clothes
★★★★★ Apr 9, 2017 (train #85 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
The staff at 12Go Asia are top notch. Very helpful and friendly. When I didn't reply to an email within 3 hours, they sent a sms to alert me that they needed an input from me asap. Their reply time was quick and the picking up of tickets was a breeze. The trip itself was lovely, cheap meals and cozy bed. I am very happy and would recommend their services!

★★★★☆ Apr 5, 2017 (train #85 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Great way to travel south, nice clean bed, good food but a bit pricey, however dinner with starter, fruit and cake, breakfast sandwich with coffee and cake and juice all served to your seat for £10 isn't too bad really.

No major issues , it would be good if they could dim the lights when everyone is in their bunks. Staff were a bit bossy at about 5.10am that they needed to start stripping the beds, we still had two hours until arrival. But for the price I would travel again. 12go were great to deal with.

Very good staff. Bathroom disgusting on our class II ac overnight route from BKK to ST but functioned. Maybe my expectations were a bit high there I don't know? Efficient ride, nice staff, and pleasantly surprised by ease of transition to buying tickets for a van ride to Khao Son NP after got off train at Surat Thani. Thanks for that streamlined service and good coffee! (Had expected to have to arrange an expensive taxi elsewhere to arrange ride to Khao Sok. Convenient).

Definitely get your money's worth with this trip! The bus left on time and we even arrived early! Seats are comfortable enough but could always have more padding. But overall it was great - blankets were provided along with a snack, a bottle of water and some soy milk.

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.

Very friendly and helpful staff.First time that we could book the train in advance. Although it is more expensive than buying from SRT directely we could get a seat on same day of arrival in Bangkok. Thank you

One of the best rides I have ever had.
★★★★☆ Mar 8, 2017 (train #85 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
My first overnight train and I would sooo do it again. The train could have been labelled better in terms of their carriage number. I had to eventually ask someone and good thing I did because I had walked straight past my designated carriage. The train Assistant was very friendly and very helpful. He made everyone's bed and the bed was very comfortable. I like the little pink curtains that everyone got to make your berth area private to only you. There could have been more areas to charge your phone. Unfortunately the only areas to charge were right in the middle of the carriage. The toilets were quite unclean and really cramped which dampened my experience.

Kind of a long trip ,do not expect the beds and facilities you find in Europe, but ok for Thailand
★★★★☆ Feb 25, 2017 (train #85 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
The overnight train was a really fun experience and would highly recommend. The bed was comfy but the train wasn't marked well so you had to ask to make sure you were in the right place/car on the train because they do not check your tickets until after it takes off so that was weird because you could've easily been on the wrong train and wouldn't have known it until later.

★★★☆☆ Feb 24, 2017 (train #85 VIP Sleeper, Thai Railways) :
The service around booking and picking up the tickets was absolutely great. The Pick up office in Bangkok had a super friendly and helpfullstaff and without a doubt I would use their service again. The train however is a different story; it is an experience we chose to have rather than a saving money thing. And an experience it was.. toilets smelled and looked worse than on a 3 day festival. Our first class cabin was ok, it looked a bit dirty but no animals/bugs and the airco worked. So if you look for an experience without too much sleep, book 1st class because the 2nd class is a whole other story!

Good trip, bed was a little tight for me (1.87). Service good. Overall experience good. Would recommend it!
