Transport and costs from KL to Krabi then Phuket

After a 7 day stay at Nang Thong. I want to travel to Ao Nang for a few days before heading south to Phuket. (Kata or Patong) What are the options and costs for the 2 legs of this journey.

Are there comfy (aircon) buses or vans that are significantly cheaper than a taxi and don't take up too much extra time?

Hi,

I have used the shared mini vans from Khao Lak to Krabi which will pick you up at Nang Thong from your hotel / resort and take you door to door price around 430 B per person. Taxi around 2200 B. to 2500

There is no direct bus or coach service to Krabi from Khao Lak.

You can also catch the bus going south to Phuket and get off at Khuk Kloy, which is about 90 minutes and is just northj of Phuket Island where the highway branches to Phang Nga and then catch a bus there, either direct to Krabi or change at Phang Nga City., probably another 2 hours. There is no direct service . I do not know the cost .

Alternatively you can catch a bus north from Khao Lak to the main bus station at Takua Pa, about 20km and 30-45 minutes. Then catch a bus from there to Krabi, a good 3 hours from there I would think.

Here is a link Krabi to Phuket

I have only used a taxi for this 3000B to Kata I use Mr Sam email

You would be able to use the bus service or shared mini van easily booked in the resorts. I do not know the cost of this Krabi To Phuket by shared van or public bus. 3 hours to Phuket.
