I have spent a lot of time researching how to get to Krabi from Koh Samui and haven't found the exact information. Is it better for me to take a ferry from Koh Samui to Don Sak and then take a bus the rest of the way or do I take a ferry from Koh Samui to Surat Thani and then a coach to Krabi. I am looking for the fastest route. What is the advised path or is there another option I am not aware of.
Also do they have 1st class or VIP buses from Don Sak or Surat Thani into Krabi?
Thanks for the help!
I might be wrong here, but Don Sak is pretty much just a drop off point for the ferry to Koh Samui. Usually you'd buy a ticket which would include a bus ticket to Surat Thani. Either way I think you are better off just going straight from Samui to Surat Thani and yes you can get either a VIP bus or mini bus to Krabi. Ive done it on the local bus but broke it up with a stop at Khao Sok which is amazing. There are pictures of it in my profile here Khao Sok
Dodger gave you good advice. Almost everyone on Samui will buy the combo ferry-bus to ST. There are coaches leaving every hour for Krabi from the ST bus station. The travel shops will try to sell their minivan option. I think you will enjoy the full sized coach over being crammed into a minivan. Too many van drivers drive like they have a death wish IMO. Take the coach from the bus station is my advice. Good luck with your planning.
