How to get to Krabi from Suratthani

What about

Chances that Krabi Town is your final destination are low as the overwhelming majority of travellers just use Krabi as a convenient jumping point to the mainland beaches of Ao Nang and Railey or to the islands of the Andaman Sea, including pristine Koh Phi Phi and laidback Koh Lanta. It is a pity as Krabi Town itself is a wonderfully cosy and pleasant place to spend a few days. The two limestone mountains looming over the Krabi river are a signature picture of the city, and the landscapes around Krabi with karsts covered with lush jungle jutting from rubber tree and oil palm plantations, mangrove forests and tapioca fields are majestic.

The accommodation options abound in the city with stylish guesthouse rooms sometimes offered at as low as THB200. Lovely coffee shops, beautiful beaches within half an hour drive from the city, worth visiting sights and a relaxed, friendly atmosphere of a provincial capital complete the picture. All in all, Krabi Town is an excellent place to take a break from the islands without moving far away form the sea.

How to get from Suratthani to Krabi

There is no railway line between Suratthani and Krabi. The Gulf and the Andaman Coast are linked by numerous buses. Private taxi is also an option if you want to travel with more comfort.

From Suratthani to Krabi by bus

It does not take long to get from Suratthani to Krabi. A 170 km route can be covered just in two-hour time by car, but buses are considerably slower so be prepared to spend from three to four hours on the wheels. Buses between Suratthani and Krabi are standard AC buses which pick up passengers on their way to Krabi and sometimes detour to let passengers get off at smaller villages – it explains longer travel time.

Phantip Travel operates buses from Suratthani Town to Krabi at 6am. 7.30am, 9am, 10.40am, 12.30pm, 2pm, 3.30pm, 4.30pm, 5pm and 6pm at THB250. You can also catch their morning bus at 7.30am from Suratthani train station in the town of Phun Phin. Travel time from Phun Phin to Krabi is three hours and tickets cost THB180. It costs from THB50 to THB100 to get from Suratthani Town to Suratthani train station or vice versa by songthaew.

Note that in Krabi buses arrive to Krabi Provincial Transport Station which is located close to Route 4 and Route 411 junction, some eight km north of Khlong Jilard Pier from where boats to Koh Phi Phi and Koh Lanta leave and some three km from the centre of Krabi Town. Songthaews from Krabi Provincial Transport Station head to the city centre, the pier and Ao Nang, from where there are more boats for your onward travel to the islands of the Andaman, including Phuket.

From Suratthani to Krabi by taxi

Phantip Charter whisks passengers striving for comfort from Suratthani Town to Krabi (THB3,150) and Suratthani Airport to Ao Nang (THB3,650) in two and 2½ hours respectively. Prices are all-inclusive and their Toyota Commuter accommodates up to nine travellers. It is an option to consider if you travel with children or a group of friends – it saves you quite a lot of time.

Your onward travel from Krabi

From Krabi Town to Koh Phi Phi and Koh Lanta

Boats from Krabi to Koh Phi Phi leave from Khlong Jilard Pier, about five km to the southwest of the centre of the city. The two main operators between Krabi and Koh Phi Phi, Andaman Wave Master and Chaokoh Travel Group, both bring you to the island in 1½ –1¾ hour. Andaman Wave Master is a bit cheaper at THB450 and offers two boats at 9am and 1.30pm; Chakoh Travel Group’s vessels are a bit faster and cost THB600. They leave at 10.30am and 3pm. In Koh Phi Phi, both companies moor at Ton Sai Pier.

Boats to Koh Lanta connect via Koh Phi Phi. You can catch a Chaokoh Travel Group’s departure at 3pm. It takes only one hour to get to Koh Lanta from Koh Phi Phi and costs THB600.

Tip: A cheaper way to get to Koh Lanta from Krabi is by van from Krabi Airport or Krabi Provincial Transport Station. Tickets cost about THB500 and the journey takes three hours. Look for transfer counters on the spot or ask in tour agencies throughout Krabi Town.

From Krabi to Phuket

Though technically it is possible to get from Krabi to Phuket by boat, it is easier to buy a bus ticket. It will cost you noticeably cheaper and take less time. If you are of one blood with chao leh, then consider Chaokoh Travel Group service. They have one boat a day from Krabi to Phuket leaving at 10.30am. The journey takes from four to five hours, and the sea is often mossy. Tickets cost THB900.

Getting around

Krabi Town is relatively small, so you can cover it on foot. Songthaews ply the main streets and connect Krabi Provincial Transport Station with the Khlong Jilard Pier and mainland beaches.

Motorbikes can be rented through some of the guesthouses for about THB200 per day and are handy if you are going to explore the environs of the city. Bicycles are not as convenient as motorbikes for this purpose as some of the most interesting destinations like Tha Pom are rather distant (about 40 km).

Activities

Krabi province is so diverse in the sense of what it has to offer to an inquisitive traveller, that you are sure to find some sort of activity to your taste. Apart from stunning beaches, both on the mainland and on the neighbouring islands, there is much more to do in Krabi than just enjoy crystal turquoise waters and inviting sand beaches.

Kayaking in mangrove forests is a highly recommended activity with Ao Thalane offering the most picturesque setting for it. You can join a tour or just rent a kayak independently. Mangrove forests are numerous in Krabi and one of the most popular destinations for wandering among the mangroves is Khlong Thom famous for its incredible Emerald Pool and a hot water spring and waterfall. Tour groups visit this place regularly, so in order to enjoy it to the fullest, come early in the morning. Another intriguing and underrated destination is Tha Pom, or Khlong Son Nam, boasting absolutely transparent water. Seawater during high tide meets fresh water there resulting in a very unique combination of mangroves and jungle vegetation.

It is next to impossible to visit Krabi and miss Wat Tham Suea, a cave temple occupying a commanding position on a hill some 7 km northwest from Krabi Town. Its 1200+ steps are a challenge, but you will be rewarded with a mesmerizing panorama of limestone karsts covered with lush vegetation. For even more exciting experience, climb Dragon Crest mountain, or Khao Ngok Nak. There are designated trails for trekking there, and the climb itself takes just about two hours.

Passenger reviews out of total 2,931 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 13, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
The first class was nice. Beds were clean. I only wished the officers were friendlier and smile more! :) Thank you for your service.
★★★☆☆ Dec 10, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
12Go is considered efficient in handling our vouchers. However both the train and bus have disappointed me. Although it is a sleeper train, but it is not so comfortable to sleep, at least I can't rest well in the train. The bus is the worst. It claims that the bus will stop at Krabi bus terminal, however, we were fetch by a mini van, and stop us in a rural area. To reach my hostel, I was forced to buy 200baht per person for the transport. I hope the agency can take note of this issue.
★★★☆☆ Dec 2, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
The Arrival was unfortunatly Not Krabi Bus Terminal as it‘s written on the Voucher. We arrived in a little old farmstead where we can‘t order a taxi. So we had to buy a Ticket (400Baht) to our Hotel. And it was a nonstop Transfer to the station wirhout any option to go to toilet.
★★★★☆ Nov 29, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Es hat alles ganz gut geklappt. Der Shop ist leicht zu finden, direkt beim Bahnhof die Straße überqueren und man ist da. Der Bus war pünktlich.
★★★★★ Nov 11, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Dropped us 10 min walk from hotel.bus terminal 6 km away so saved us a taxi.
★★☆☆☆ Nov 7, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Thai railways as always good but the bus operator drops you at their own compound basically being forced to buy onward travel with them. We were planning to go to Ko Lanta, when arriving at the island the driver asked us for another 100B per couple to drop us near the hotel. 12Go Asia should definitely take a note on this.
★★★★☆ Nov 3, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Train was excellent, but the bus did not go to krabi bus terminal. Instead it went to some parking lot where we had to pay extra for taxi to hotel.
★★★☆☆ Oct 26, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Lots of cockroaches and bugs
★★★★☆ Oct 16, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Staff from SRT were friendly and helpful. Helped the older members of our group with their luggage.
★★★☆☆ Sep 14, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Very nice comfortable trip...bus from train to Krabi not great. Mini van used instead of big bus and terminal not convenient.
★★★★☆ Sep 12, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Very smooth trip.
★★★★☆ Sep 2, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
We thought we were supposed to take the big bus (Rot Thua), but we actually had to take a van to Krabi. We didn't arrive at the Krabi Bus Terminal either.. But it was not a big deal, since our agency picked us up at the other destination we arrived at. However on the other side, the van was much faster, so we arrived around an hour earlier than scheduled. So overall, it was pretty good!
★★★★★ Jul 18, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Amazingly well connected and efficient. Very fast and comfortable ride!
★★★★☆ Jun 22, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Left at 6.30 instead of 6pm (departure times have changed!). It's an old bus but the A/C is very good. Journey took 3.5 hours to Krabi but this is Thailand and I got there in one piece. Company were great and moved my original booking date with no hassle - overall, would use again and recommend.
★★★☆☆ Jun 1, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Really confusing to find where the bus departs! Definitely give yourself some extra time to locate. Also the bus never stopped for bathroom breaks and there was no toilet on the bus.
★★★★☆ May 27, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
The trip via Bus I initially booked was not available. At first, the bus drivers told me, that I'd have to wait for 2 hours and take the next bus. The very friendly lady at the bus company's office then gave me a ticket to take a minivan at no extra charge. Very nice service, the whole booking process seemed a little chaotic at their end, though.
★★★★★ Apr 26, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970)
★★★☆☆ Mar 25, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970)
★★★★★ Mar 25, 2017 (charter Van 9pax, Phantip Charter) :
Ontime without further follow up, only hiccups as there were 2 groups , the other is on Bus while me is on Van, which under same transport provider. Items get clarified after I explain to the onsite supervisor.
★★☆☆☆ Mar 21, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Two points instead of one only because we actually GOT to Krabi. We booked in advance which turned out to be 60bath more expansive each. At the airport we waited ages until the shuttle to the Bus (same bus company!!) got full so we said to the driver that we have tikets and need to get the bus at 4:30 pm. They seemed to hurry up then; however, it still took 20 more minutes to leave. Of course we did not arrive on time... But also because our driver took his time (5 min to destination) at a market to get some food. At least we could change our tikets for a later bus and started waiting for the actual bus just to learn 3 min before departure (after asking! No one seemed to want to maybe inform us) that we have to go some blocks further to get the bus. At the bus I gave the driver two tikets for me and my friend, and even though I showed him who I meant before getting in he still tried to get money from my friend in order to get to the Bus. The bus itself seemed to fall apart inside with seats missing and seats just staying leaned back. But that's OK I guess. Also, they bring you to a place where you have to get a tuktuk. All in all, a real shit experience though
★★★☆☆ Mar 20, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970)
★★★★★ Mar 19, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Very smooth and easy. Helpful people, never felt lost.
★★★☆☆ Mar 17, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
My ticketing was all fine, but the company that 12go booked with did not drop us at the bus terminal. Rather, they dropped us off at a tourist office where they were trying to book myself and other passengers onto expensive boat rides, tours, taxis etc. Other than that, it was a good trip.
★★★★★ Mar 14, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970)
★★★☆☆ Mar 6, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
The train is wasn't a big stuff, but is confortable.
★★★★★ Mar 5, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Really straightforward, no frils but efficient friendly service from all concerned
★★★☆☆ Feb 25, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
The journey was fine but the bus in Krabi town took us to some bus station and not the center of town so the only option was to book a shuttle through them to go to Ao Nang or your hotel/hostel which is more expensive than taking local transportation which really wasn't an option since we were so far away from the town center to find the local transportation.
★★★★☆ Feb 7, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Ticket and bus service very good.
★★★☆☆ Jan 26, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Food was OK but for that it was expensive. Could be a little bit cleaner for our liking. Bus was not ok. They drove us behind a school to a private ferry company and we had to pay 50 baht p.P. To drive us to our hotel. Taxi from bus terminal would have been 30 baht but for thrice the way! NOT OK
★★★★☆ Jan 26, 2017 (charter Van 9pax, Phantip Charter) :
Good ride. No complications
★★★☆☆ Jan 6, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Ok
★★★★★ Dec 29, 2016 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970)
★★★★☆ Dec 27, 2016 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Cheap and direct. Shame they didn't drop off in town centre. Had to pay extra 50 baht each to get to our hotel which ended up being just down the road from bus station :(
★★★☆☆ Dec 23, 2016 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Service was efficient, fast and comfortable, but we were not delivered to Krabi bus depot as our ticket displayed and we had anticipated. Instead the bus took all passengers to another office, where we were distributed onto different buses. We should have been advised of this, as it also confused our arranged pickup from the depot.
★★★☆☆ Dec 20, 2016 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Much the same as everyone. Train was good. Picked up coach for 2.5 hours no stopping. Arrived at a centre and was told to pay a further 200 baht each to take us to our final destination. Everyone sat around for 30 mins as this is the usual Thai way to get everyone to purchase food. Quite common.
★★★☆☆ Nov 23, 2016 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Mostly same as the others. Train trip was nice. The bus trip too. All well organised. The bus should stop for at least 10 min on the way even it is just a 2 - 2,5 hrs ride. Being dropped off somewhere in the middle of nowhere and taking too high transfer prices is actually a rip-off.
★★★☆☆ Nov 17, 2016 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Bus ride was fast snd comfortable at 8am from Surat Thani to Krabi town. Did not like that they dropped us off at a travel office on some side street with no other options to book transfers with different travel offices.
★★★★☆ Nov 15, 2016 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Unfortunately the toilet on the bus was locked and we had to demand the bus driver to stop somewhere for the toilet break which he wasn't happy about. The journey was just over two hours and comfortable after the toilet break. It would be convenient to have a choice to be dropped off in or around the town as an alternative to the travel centre where you had no choice but use their services to travel further.
★★★★☆ Nov 13, 2016 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Good
★★★☆☆ Nov 11, 2016 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
The train ride was great and the bus to Krabi only took 2 hours. But they didn't drop us off at the bus terminal as is indicated. They dropped us off at one of their travel centers, so we had to take a $25 taxi to get to the Thalen pier instead of a $3 public bus from the terminal. Not cool.
★★★★★ Nov 11, 2016 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
The trip took only 2 hours - we arrived to early so we had to wait to check in at the hotel :)
★★★★☆ Nov 5, 2016 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Very helpful getting you on the right bus. Polite and friendly. Bus was comfortable.
★★★★☆ Oct 26, 2016 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Everything was great!
★★★★☆ Oct 17, 2016 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Super service from 12go.

Perfect service. Super easy to get where you need to go. Takes a while but super cheap so choose if you want to pay extra to fly

★★★☆☆ Apr 17, 2016 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
From Surat Tani to Krabi there was a regional bus with so many stops, AC not so good, and finally we stopped in the middle of nowhere with no other chance than to get a local taxi to our hotel.

Dropped off in middle of nowhere, tourist trap, away from Krabi town. From there you had no choice but to pay some fee (100bht for 2 minute ride 2 people) just to be taken into the town, or somewhere else. Bus ride took nearly one hour to begin. Coach very comfortable if you can forgive the rest. Tip to operator: make drop in Krabi town before being taken to this bus station in middle of nowhere. Get started quickly - nobody wants to sit around, hungry, waiting for an hour!!! Won't use again.
★★☆☆☆ Mar 1, 2016 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
No AA in the bus!
★★★★☆ Jan 10, 2016 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Great bus from Suratani to Krabi----made a mistake however of not paying sura to sura town online with 12go Asia. Should be more clear when booking. 3rd time on this route, different issues but "same same"! Good online agency, friendly staff in Bangkok.

★★★★☆ Dec 31, 2015 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Bus comfortable but left late, 12goasia did not have info for us about transfer from train to bus, just that it would take us a few minutes to get there. Actually they load you on bus, but then come around charging 50 baht per person extra to "drive" the extra bit down the road! Of course with luggage you don't want to walk. This should be included in price if buying combo train/bus ticket, or clearly explained.
★★★★★ Dec 28, 2015 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
They tried to charge us an extra 50 bhats too. The information from GoAsia should make it clear that this will happen, and that the bus ticket is from Surat Thani town not Surat Thani train station. Bus was 1 hour late and dropped us at their agency in Krabi 1 kilometer from pier. But the driving was fine and AC was about right.
★★★☆☆ Dec 25, 2015 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Bus departed with 1 hour delay..reason was tour selling in the bus. They dropped all the people in front of a travel agent instead of the port. Everything was far touristy and commercial. Staff had no English enough.
★★★★☆ Dec 22, 2015 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Same as all others but we were charged 50 bhat extra which is fair enough as it is the same price as advertised from the train station. We were taken to an agency in krabi and felt that we were left with no choice but to use them to book a taxi. Otherwise all good
★★☆☆☆ Dec 18, 2015 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
As with the other reviewers, we were charged an extra 100 Bht. In all fairness I have to say this does make sense. Surat Thani train station is ~15 Km from Surat Thani. 12Go Asia should make this clear when selling tickets online. We were lucky and arrived early enough to get seats. I saw at least 10 unhappy people turned away, left to wait for the next bus.
★★★☆☆ Dec 17, 2015 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Its a very standard bus. Nothing special expect the price is quite high...
★★★★★ Dec 14, 2015 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Clean and very pleasent. Recommend
★★★☆☆ Nov 24, 2015 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Not good they definitely have a captive market to sell more tickets - back to their depot so you are somewhat isolated and difficult to go elsewhere Also the bus driver seemed very tired and couldn't keep the bus straight which for two hours was scary! Convenient but that's all - a bit expensive but still not much when you consider what 100 baths is worth
★★★☆☆ Oct 15, 2015 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Same as the other reviewers, had to pay extra 100baht as my ticket was not from the station but from the town. Once on the bus they were upselling extra tickets to different areas of Krabi, my advise would be to go to Krabi Town & get a bus for 50Baht rather than 400Baht they were charging
★★★☆☆ Oct 12, 2015 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Unlike last time did not take us from train. Had to pay for another coach to take to town. Then on coach tried to sell more travel that was not what they sold. Felt miss sold
★★☆☆☆ Oct 6, 2015 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Same as other reviewer. At the surat thani station I was told my ticket was from city and took 100THB additional. And dropped somewhere in city then a tuk tuk took us another two three kms to a roadside restaurant where we had to wait for half an hour. From there a mini van (not a bus) took us to Krabi finally.
★★☆☆☆ Sep 26, 2015 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
had a train to surat thani and then a bus to krabi. These two were 15 km away though. so had to get another bus and pay additional fees :(
