Direct flight to Krabi?

Travel Forums Asia Direct flight to Krabi?

I'm flying out to Thailand in December but want to spend a few weeks in the islands before I head up to Bangkok.

Is it possible to get a direct flight from the UK to Krabi during December? or should I just fly to Bangkok and make my way south?

Im looking to spend my time on Ko Lanta. Will it be easy to find beach hut accomodation on this island in December?

Thanks for your help;)

as far as I know its not possible to fly direct to Krabi from the UK; you can fly to Phuket which isn't far away, but this would tend to be with charter airlines as part of a package holiday. In my opinion you would be better off flying down from Bangkok or taking an overnight bus. Bankgok Airways are a good budget airline who offer this route - you can book online.

No direct flights UK-Krabi. Fly into BKK and fly down to Krabi the same day on Nok Air. You can fly down for less than 1K baht. You can take an overnight bus from Southern Bus Station, but you will only save a few hundred baht. Fly it.

I think your best bet is to stop in several travel shops once in Krabi and tell them what you are looking for and your budget. There are dozens of beaches that are not well known but might be just what you are looking for. There are enough resorts on Koh Lanta that you should be OK by just booking once you get there. Good Luck.
