van Regional 14pax, Bus Cooperative of Krabi (สหกรณ์รถยนต์โดยสารกระบี่จำกัด), Mar 21, 2021
Never used this sevice before and was taken to a bus station and told to sit and wait. This was a surprise to me as nothing in my itinerary to say I had to change vehicle I had no idea who was taking me or what time we were going to leave. Upon arrival I was pointed to a dirt track and told it was down there. The driver could of easily taken me down there as a tourist not knowing where “down there” was a little confused.

Concerned only about health safety because they did not enforce strict mask with a passenger who did not wear the mask the whole trip. Wish they were more serious because now a COVID case in Krabi has come up.

It was a strange ride. Their customer service was great but the ride was pretty uncomfortable as the air conditioning was practically none existent and the driver was mad we opened a window.

Temperatures already very hot, the Cabin became even hotter with the boat being overbooked and passengers crowded up on decks too, but at least there was sea breeze up there, got us from a to b so wasn’t bad just got a lashing off the sun because the heat below deck was unbearable. When we got to the other end at koh lanta the docks wouldn’t let us disembark without a 20 baht cleaning fee which we were unaware of and having packed everything away was annoying to have to search for the money in the already hot conditions with big bags on our backs.

An email informed us that the pickup would be at 8.20 am and we should wait in front of our hotel at least 15-30 min before. So we checked out at 8 am but waited until 9.40 am before the shuttle finally came ! The ferry was then on time.

How to get from Ao Nang to Koh Lanta by Van

Van is a convenient option to get from Ao Nang to Koh Lanta. Van tickets are affordable, vans are generally do a faster job than buses, vans offer a good choice of departures.

Depending on the van type, each vehicle can accommodate between 12 and 15 passengers. Yet an evident drawback of travelling by van is limited space for the luggage. In most cases you will need to keep your bags, backpacks or suitcases under your seat or in the aisle. Thus van is not the best choice if you travel with huge luggage. F this is the case, consider buying a separate ticket for your bags or choose bus instead.

On certain routes, vans are your only choice of transportation as no buses, trains or flights are available between those destinations.

It is a popular question whether it is necessary to book van tickets in advance. Though some routes feature a lot of departures, we still highly recommend booking your seat especially if you are going to take one of the last vans of the day; travelling during weekends, public holidays or busy tourist seasons; are in a group of two or more and want to travel on the same van.

Here is the list of companies that run regular vans between Ao Nang and Koh Lanta and offer tickets for online booking.

How far is from Ao Nang to Koh Lanta?

Vans follow the same routes as buses do. Thus the driving distance between Ao Nang and Koh Lanta will be about X km. Some vans do not take the shortest route to Koh Lanta and make detours to pick up and drop off passengers en route. If this is the case, it will result in a longer travel time – you can see it when choosing your ticket.

How long does it take to get from Ao Nang to Koh Lanta by Van?

Most vans need from 2h to 3h 30m hours to get from Ao Nang to Koh Lanta Note though that travel time depends greatly on traffic conditions. Traffic can be dense around the rush hour at both your departure point and destination. Weather conditions – e.g. heavy rain – often result in longer travel time, too.

Before booking your van tickets, check how long the trip with each operator takes as some vans follow longer routes to Koh Lanta or make detours.

Also, it is important to know that van companies that accept online booking offer scheduled van departures; yet there are also some vans which depart only when full, and in certain cases the waiting period can be long. Thus choosing an operator that runs vans on a set schedule is always a better idea.

How much does it cost to get from Ao Nang to Koh Lanta by Van?

This makes it a cheap option for travelling when in groups. The van service will also not charge extra for bags and luggage, as long as it fits inside the van.

Best Rated Companies for this Route

Getting a van service for your group can offer extra space, comfort and convenience not found in other transport options. Unlike taxis or buses which have numerous trips per day, a van service is usually scheduled. But some van services do follow a scheduled departure time. Please check our listings for such services.

Having your entire group together for a long trip can add to the enjoyment. This can allow your group to discuss and even sing to your heart's content without fear of bothering others.

Just like taxis, the advantage of travelling by van is that you can ask the driver to stop by stores, supermarkets and other establishments. You can stop anywhere at any time since you are basically renting the van and not just paying for taxi fare. You can use this opportunity to take epic groupie pics at local landmarks and tourist spots.

Vans are especially useful when travelling with large and sensitive equipment like photography setups and large computers. Trunks and compartments might not be a safe holding area for fragile packages. Placing them inside the roomy and well-padded interior of van will make it more secure and safe.
