Phuket to Krabi

Phuket & a great tour to the south

Most visitors to Phuket also make a tour to Krabi
For the trip from Phuket Island to Krabi Province are two possibilities one is with the ferry via Phi-Phi Islands and the other is road travel.

For the first try to get to Rasada Pier in Phuket Town best is with a motorbike taxi and before 8am note there are no taxis on Phuket Island only at the Airport this is to keep the business to the Tuk-Tuk and they will cheat you because some local polititions own them and make money with it. One of them which was the Submayor of Patong in Katu district not even the Miliary were not able to get rid of him so they cleaned it the local way via a bullet.
Krabi and Ao Nang Bay with Railay Beach plus Phi Phi Islands and Koh Lanta are some of the top tourist destinations in Thailand. 

To reach this part in the south take a Krabi flight out of Bangkok. Krabi actually has a international airport but this is mainly used for charter flights, there are no other international flights to Krabi, except from Singapore but this is also not all the time the best is if you search for a  flight to Krabi have a look into Air Asia.

This area is one of the top tourist destination in Southeast Asia / ASEAN and that has a reason between Phuket and Krabi are exzellent roads and plenty of hotels. There are ships and speedboats to various destinations such as Phi-Phi Islands and many islands in Krabi plus spectacular waterfronts such as Railay Beach at Ao Nang and in the mangroove forests including prehistoric caves in Ao Luk which is on the road from Phuket to Krabi.

There are also good and not so expensive bungalows and beach cottages. A rapid growing segment are luxury hotels most most of them are located north of Ao Nang around the Sheraton Krabi this was the first real luxury hotel in the area. Several more luxury have been built since then in the same area.
