Hi
Is anyone aware of any internal flights between Krabi and Pattaya? have been searching but not very successfully.
Is Phuket to Pattaya a better option and what's the best way to get to Phuket from Krabi (and travel times).
Any advice would be welcome - thanks.

I do not think you can get to Pattaya from Phuket or Krabi on a direct flight. I think the best way to visit Krabi from Phuket is to take the boat. Koh Phi Phi is worth a stop as well. Once you are finished with the Krabi area, I would take the overnight gov't bus; Krabi to BKK. You save one nights accommodation and arrive in the early AM. You are now at the Southern Bus Station(Sai Tai Mai). You have a couple of options. If you can find another farang going to Pattaya, ask around, share the price of a taxi. If this does not work, you can take a public bus to the Eastern Bus Station(Ekamai) and get on the next bus to Pattaya. Hope this helps. Good Luck.

Thanks for that Mike - was hoping there might have been an easier way but I'll bear it in mind. By the way, how long is the journey from Bangkok to Pattaya by road?

Of course it depends on traffic and time of day, but with the new highways, the taxis and buses are generally getting from BKK to Pattaya in about 2.5 hours.
