bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970, Sep 19, 2019
I booked a bus ride but on arrival at Surat Thani I was instead put in a minivan with only 1 other couple. Trip took about 2½ hours which were fast and nice. From Krabi Sea Pearl Travel I had to book a taxi to get to Ao Nang Beach instead of waiting 2 hours for the next bus - cost 400 bath but very good and safe journey to my hotel.

You will be dropped off away from the city centre where they will try to charge you for a minivan service up to 400Baht. If you are able just walk back to the main street and catch a classic service to the beach for 50Baht.
