Phuket to Krabi

Phuket to Krabi by ship and road




Phuket to Krabi

At Ao Nang are no luxury hotels, at the famous Railay Beach south of Ao Nang several pretty beach resorts are located, all are quite far from Krabi town. Vacation here are usually very quiet also in the luxury segment, if you want to have action and nightlife you better stay at Phuket around 200km to the north. Ko Samui is more or less within a similar distance as Phuket, its easy to take a bus for a trip. Bangkok is about 10 hours with the bus and Krabi flights to Bangkok are available several times per day and take about one hour, here is a Krabi map

Weather in Krabi Thailand follows the same pattern as anywhere in southern Thailand. Dry and sunny from November to April. Wet, sunny and cloudy the rest of the years.
is one of the best vacation destination in the country. Great beaches, bizarre limestone formations, jungle trekking in the "hinterland", rock climbing, good food and excellent accommodations are waiting.

Here are pictures from Phuket to Krabi and other destinations in south Thailand.

A great tropical region, Phuket and Krabi pictures show it.  

The area is around 1500 road km north of the equator and has all variants for a great drive. To the north west road travel ends in Ranong at the opposite side is Kawthaung Myanmar. To the north the limit is somehow Hua Hin and to the south it's the border to Malaysia where the most important crossing is at Sadao's Danok.

Either rent a car, but you must return where you started, there is no drop off. When starting in Thailand it needs to make a official car paper translation other wise they wont issue insurance paper at the border to Malaysia at Sadao / Danok. The insurance is around Baht 1000,- for 1 month. Do it at the Thai side, the Malaysians are extremely lazy there.

The insurance booth at Sadao Danok is open from 8 am to 6 pm only and the border crossing is open from 5 am to 11 pm Thai time.

The best is bus travel, first from Phuket to Hat Yai ( 7 hours) or Danok, after to Penang or Kuala Lumpur and from there to Singapore. Busses are quite low priced and very comfortable, average speed is around 70 km / hour. Naturally through the airport it works faster.
