we are now at langkawi and looking to get a ferry to satan in thailand in 2 days. how can we get to krabi and where is best to stay once we get there. do you know "Ao Nang" is it any good and again how to get there. any help would be appreciated. many thanks
At Satun Ferry Terminal is a small Travelagent arranging the Minibus and Bus trips to all destinations in Thailand.
It's next to the restaurant. Once you arrived go to him.
Another choice would be, get to town, it will take about 20 minutes from the Tammalang pier and try to catch a Bus to Trang, from there another Bus to Krabi.
Where to stay there? I'm sorry I can't help ypu with this.
Once at the Krabi bus station, you will be swarmed by touts trying to get you to stay at their hotel. Take a look at the options and say, "too expensive". Lower priced rooms will become available, or another tout will compete for your baht. If you don't find anything that you like, take the truck/taxi into Krabi town. Get off on any of the streets and start walking. There are several small hotels on each street that were in the 500bt range. This is years ago, but should not have changed too much. Stop into any travel shop and let them know what you are looking for. They will have many resorts to pick from in the area, at all price levels. Tell them you are on a budget and see what is available. Railey Beach is beautiful and worth a day trip at least. Most of the budget accom. are gone now, but Ya Ya Resort was not too bad, around 500bt. I have photos of the Krabi area in my gallery. Good Luck.
