I need to get from there to Railay. Please can someone advise the simplest way?
I have looked at a number of other forums and most seem to suggest going via Ao Nang. Is this really the simplest way? Also each post seems to raise as many questions as they answer including:
If getting to Railay from Ao Nang can I get a bus to Ao Nang directly from the bus station I am dropped off at in Krabi?
If not, what bus station do I need and how to get between the two?
Otherwise, how much would a taxi cost from Krabi to Ao Nang?
At Ao Nang, where do we get the boat from and will the bus drop us near by? Lots of posts just say "the beach". Specifics would really help me.
Finally, earlier at Surat Thani, do the buses go from the train station? Some posts have suggested you have to first make your way to another bus station. This seems crazy to me on a joint rail/bus ticket.
I really appreciate anyone who can walk me through all the steps! I leave on the train tomorrow night.
