Car+driver should take about 5 - 6 hrs max, very wild guessing here but probably about B 4-5,000. From Krabi to join the main highway turn-off near Surat Thani is about 3-4 hrs and then about another 2 to Chumphon depending whether you stop for a meal or just a quick fuel/rest stop
There are buses to Chumphon but note certain express buses that area heading to Bangkok may stop in Chumphon but that would probably be nearby on the highway , bus would take longer and again guessing but probably around the B 400-450 range.
Oriental Escapes charge B 2,500 between krabi and Surat Thani, so probably 5,000 for Chumphon, so based on that a local car+driver probably about 4,000
There is no rail line to krabi.Edited: 22 October 2010, 18:04
