By bus

With a new bus station in Phuket to Krabi and back from 07:00 to 18:00 hourly van cost 140 baht (see currency of Thailand, the exchange rate). To purchase tickets in advance, there is no need, you can purchase them directly before sending.

In Krabi minivans stop at the bus station Talat Kao and then go to the center of Krabi town, where drop passengers on the main street Maharaj Alley. If you need to continue to get to the resort Ao Nang, it is possible both from the centre and from the bus station to sit on the taxi Songthaew to Ao Nang for 50-100 baht, 40 min. The island of Lanta can be reached by vans for 400 baht.

Also straight from the beaches of Phuket travel Agency send minivans to Krabi, but we would recommend to refrain from their services, since a trip with them can be very lengthy.

Good article! But I'll start with the fact that I'm not a fan of the "seal" rest, because for me it is much more interesting to explore and discover something new, to walk on unknown streets, to meet new people. But when there is no energy for active life, and, in fact, the rest, I always do this: buy a ticket to Phuket, 4 days Bendigo lie on the beach, and from there begin their active traveler. This year I took a summer vacation and realized that to go to Sochi I absolutely do not want, so the choice fell on Ty. "In Thailand this summer?", - asked my friend, "Yes," I answered and thought "seriously, what is Thailand in the summer can be", because we are well fed, but going to the website for the tours and seeing the amount that I have been on the map for my journey, the idea is then embodied in the purchased ticket. To say that mentally I have not had a rest - to say nothing! Warm sea, gentle sun, the cocktails (easier in the morning, in the evening in an adult), pleasant tourists in other rooms - a real thrill! During this period, fortunately, on the beaches freely and quietly, which, of course, could not but rejoice. I left sooooo happy. So, if you came up with the idea - not keep a idea, embody, tourism intuition will not fail ...
