From Phuket it's easy to either self drive or hire a driver/taxi to take you to Khao Lak, but then you are going back on yourselves to go to Phi Phi. I would start in Khao Lak, then head to Phuket, Phi Phi, Koh Lanta and Krabi (Railay).

you are indeed doing it the wrong way round.idealy khao lak first,but ,if you have booked phuket,then phuket khao lak,krabi,phi phi,lanta,while you are down there try to get to koh muk and koh kradang.also a trip to koh rok.

Thanks guys for you're quick response, we are staying at each resort for 3 nights and all hotels are booked , I will look at rearranging them in the order you suggest , not flying out until February 4th so hopefully won't get charged but many thanks and will certainly look at going to the islands you recommend ,once again many thanks

You're still better off flying to Phuket and then getting a taxi to Khao Lak as it's only around 75 minutes north of Phuket.
