How to get from Krabi to Koh Lanta

Koh Lanta is an island in Krabi Province that lies south of Krabi Town proper. The island can easily be accessed by road and a short ferry ride or by sea. It takes roughly three hours to travel on land from Krabi to Koh Lanta, a distance of approximately 85 km. A minivan, taxi or ferry can get you to Koh Lanta from Krabi town or airport, and there are numerous companies that offer transport services for this route.

Traveling to Koh Lanta overland is cheaper and there are more options, including vans and taxis. Though expensive, a taxi is the fastest choice for this route. Using a highspeed ferry can be costly and the sea can be rough resulting in cancellations of the trips. However, larger boats are a popular option especially when travelling in the opposite direction, from Koh Lanta to Krabi.

From Krabi to Koh Lanta by Van

Minivans are quite popular when traveling to Koh Lanta because they are small and less crowded and drive faster than commercial buses. They also charge less than taxis.

Bus Cooperative of Krabi operates from Krabi bus terminal and offers air-conditioned vans. You can board the vans at the Krabi Bus Terminal or there is an option to order a pick-up from a hotel in Krabi Town for the same price.

Normally all the van operators between Krabi and Koh Lanta deliver you to any hotel in Koh Lanta – so even if you have not booked your accommodation in advance have in mind the point where you want to be dropped off.

The whole trip including a short ferry ride (you do not need to leave the van) lasts three hours.

Bus Cooperative of Krabi vans offer scheduled trips from 7.00am and every two hours after that until 4.00pm when the last van leaves. Regardless of where you board the van, tickets will cost THB 360.

It is important to note that:
If you are boarding the van at the Terminal, make your way to Counter number 11 (or 33) at the bus terminal, present your voucher and notify the staff about your drop off point and again when you check in.

If you would like to be picked up from your hotel, ensure that you are in hotel's lobby 30 minutes before departure. If you have huge luggage, consider paying for an extra seat.

From Krabi Airport to Koh Lanta

There are direct vans to Koh Lanta from Krabi Airport, too. They normally leave shortly after the arrival of the flights and take approximately the same time you need if travelling from Krabi Town.

If you miss the departure for some reason, you can get to the Krabi Bus Terminal first and then hop onto a van to Koh Lanta from there. It takes 25 minutes to get from the airport into Krabi town.

From Krabi to Koh Lanta by Taxi

There are several advantages of using a taxi to travel to Koh Lanta from Krabi. Taxis are faster and more comfortable and it takes approximately one hour and a half hour to get to any hotel in Koh Lanta from Krabi town. Also, there are no scheduled times for taxis, therefore, you do not have to worry about missing your ride. However, it is important to note that taxis are way more expensive than vans.

Andaman Taxis and Lanta Gardenhill primarily provide taxi services for this route. Lanta Gardenhill offers 9-passenger taxis from Krabi town to Koh Lanta at a cost of THB 2,800 and from Krabi Airport to Koh Lanta for THB 2,600.

Andaman Taxis offers two types of taxis; comfort taxis that carry a maximum of 3 passengers and the regular 9-passenger taxi. A ticket from Krabi Town or Bus Terminal to Koh Lanta costs THB 3,000 for the comfort taxi and THB 3,200 for the 9-passenger Andaman Taxi. From Krabi Airport to Koh Lanta, you can board a comfort taxi for THB 2,800 and a 9-passenger taxi for THB 3,000.

From Krabi to Koh Lanta by Ferry

Tigerline Travel offers combination van+ferry tickets from Krabi bus station, Krabi hotels and beaches in the Krabi province including Ao Nang, Klong Muang and Railey Beach.

Their shuttle van leaves the Krabi Bus Station Terminal at 10.00am and brings passengers to the Hat Yao Pier where you'll board a high-speed ferry for Koh Lanta. You’ll alight at the Saladan Pier at 2.30pm. For this combination ticket, you’ll need THB 1,250 for adults, THB 875 for children 2-11 years, and THB 500 for infants under 2 years.

The same shuttle van picks up passengers at the Krabi Airport at 10.30am; tickets cost exactly the same.

Starting from Krabi beaches (Ao Nang, Klong Muang and Railey Beach) will make the trip longer and more expensive and we feel like it is not actually worth considering travelling by ferry over this route. In Ao Nang he shuttle van departs from the Ao Nang Center next to the Ao Nang Cliff Beach Resort at 9.00am.

Tip: Due to varying reasons including weather conditions, ferries from Krabi to Koh Lanta mainly operate from November till April.

Concerned that I needed to leave time to clear customs at the airport, I'd booked a later journey than I would have liked. I was resigned to a two hour wait in the airport, but the lady was there with my name already. The bus was soon full and we set off 90 minutes early. The driver was polite and cheerful, and seemed knowledgeable about the drop off points. I will be using the same service on my return,

12Go is the best app for us here in Asia. This time I have to change the drop off place in Koh Lanta and the app did right away and sent the new voucher for us. The trip was fine and we got safety in our destination.

There were only 3 of us for the pick up and luckily we were all on the same flight so we arrived at our hotels on Koh lanta hours before we were meant to! When exiting the airport the driver was stood waiting with signs of our names, it was all very easy and quick. He was a good driver too, didn’t make any dangerous manoeuvres like some Thai drivers I’ve had!

Smooth pickup at the airport. However, agree with security concerns expressed by other reviewers. Also not great on communication, we were supposed to stay on the boat and travel to our destination yet ended up waiting on the hot pier in Koh Phi Phi for 45min for a new boat which was overcrowded. If it's choppy, you and your luggage will definitely get wet.

Pick up found easy right after customs clearance on right side in Krabi Airport. Waited for 30 minutes for family, that ended going different direction. Picked up other passengers at other terminal. Where only 7 in van, so enough space. We knew the way and luckily did not leave the van at the first spot with similar (not same) name - but 5 km apart. So be sure off it is the right adress/place. They dropped off at the highway.

Once we got underway, the ride to the hotels went completely smoothly. The driver knew exactly where everyone was supposed to go and the entire ride took about 45 minutes less than estimated. After getting off the plane and picking up luggage, it was a bit unclear where to go to meet the shuttle van and no one at the airport had ever heard of the airport shuttle, including the info desk. I got ahold of the customer help line for the shuttle company and we figured it out. All ended well.

Very fast and efficient service. Arrived an hour quicker than scheduled. However be warned, If you are using Air Asias "fly thru" service then you will leave the airport at the international arrivals terminal, even if you flew domestic. Simply get a free ride across to domestic arrivals to meet your driver.

The bus was comfortable and the journey was, altogether, very nice. We had booked the transfer that was 2 hours after our arrival at the airport, because we hadn't known if the plane would not be delayed. The plane landed on time and they were even waiting for us at the airport so we could leave the airport almost 2 hours before our booked transfer. However, the driver was driving a bit too fast and did not speak English almost at all (which was a bit problematic as he had been given the wrong hotel address)

We were surprised when the driver collected us from our hotel on time! The journey was very comfortable in the air conditioned van. Driver made 1 stop along the way for us to use the bathroom or buy something. Seemless transfer onto the ferry which took about 15min. Driver then dropped us right outside our hotel in Klong Nin Beach. Total journey took 2:45, would definitely recommend!

I booked the 20:00 van and arrived at Krabi airport in no hurry because I expected a long waiting time. Somebody at a stall saw the voucher I held in my hand and yelled at me. From there on, I was handed over from one person to the next until I sat right in the van to Koh Lanta which took off a few minutes later. The company had put me on the earlier van and I had 0 waiting time at the airport. The driver was very good, too. He had a calm driving still, so I did not get sick. Excellent experience with this company, highly recommend!
