From Krabi airport it's about 40 minutes to Ao Nang and about 30 minutes to Railay Beach by longtail.

Just ask the driver to take you to Ao Nang for Railay Beach, they all know it, plenty of taxis at the airport, don't know price, but have some smaller money with you, a couple of 100B and 50B to pay for it.

There are also communal songtaows (pickups) that travel between Krabi and Ao Nang. To travel between the two is not difficult.

Songtaows are off limit at the airport. You have to walk down to the main road to flag one down. You can also take the airport shuttle bus for 150 Baht/Pax to bring you to Ao Nang. On request they stop at the longtail boat ticket centers and pick up place for Railay. A taxi will cost you 600 Baht/vehicle or 1050 Baht for a private mini bus.

www.krabishuttle.com from Krabi Airport to Aonang 600 baht car or 750 baht minibus (30 mins) and longtail to Railay takes only 10 minutes (the person above who took 30 minutes must have done some sightseeing on the way!)

Enjoy!

It's a while ago, the memory fades - maybe it was choppy seas.

I went to Railey about 3 years ago. Our flight to Krabi airport landed at about 7pm and we took the shuttle bus to Ao Nang via some drop offs in Krabi Town and then Ao Nang. It took about over an hour so it was 8pm and very dark when we got the longtail to Railey (about 10 minutes) but the guy initially wanted 1750 Baht for the journey between 4 of us. Think we paid about 500 in the end. Probably still a rip off but we had to get to Railey as our hotel was booked.

It was choppy and we got soaked but great fun.
