Hi there,

I am flying into Phuket in January and am looking for accommodation.

Krabi looks exactly what we are looking for.

We are three middle aged girls!

How long is the transfer to Krabi and how much would it cost for a taxi?

We are looking to rent a small house or villa Thanks


Hi Liz,

From Phuket to Krabi by road will take around 2 - 2.5 hours.

We usually hire a car to get around, however I have been doing some research for people that prefer not to drive and came across a company called "Phuket Shuttle".

They are registered with the Tourism Authority of Thailand and are a member of Pacific Asia Travel Association.

We personally haven't used the services of this company and don't usually recommend anything that we haven't tried and tested ourselves, however they have very good reviews on TripAdvisor from other travellers that have used their service.

Have a look at their website and also read the reviews on TripAdvisor.

For accommodation in Krabi we usually stay around Ao Nang as we find it more central and easy to get around.

Another option that may interest you is to catch a ferry from Phuket to Koh Phi Phi and spend a couple of days exploring the islands before catching another ferry from Phi Phi to Krabi.

We hope this information is helpful and you have a wonderful holiday in our favorite part of the world.
