Ko Lanta to Khao Lak

Can anyone advise me of travel options between Ko Lanta and Khao Lak in February and the likely journey times? We are travelling with 2 small children.

If possible we would prefer to travel by ferry / speedboat, for at least part of our trip, perhaps via Phuket?

Many thanks

Have a look at this link with information about travel options between Khao Sok, which is an hour north of Khao Lak and Khao Lak. tripadvisor.co.uk/…22853763

The links in the post should give you most information you need.

It will be quicker to get the ferry across from Lanta to Krabi then by road to Khao Lak rather than speedboat to Phuket and by road from there.

Ferry from Koh Lanta to Krabi the taxi from Krabi to Khao Lak. Both legs take about 2 hrs so can comfortably be done in a day but consider spending some time in Krabi if you haven't been before. The region is very spectacular.

Taxi price about 3000 baht or shared minivan about 400 baht per person.

We have some pics, maps and stories of our trips to the above locations here... www.bobandjanette.com that may prove useful.

Happy & safe travels
