How to get from Koh Phi Phi to Krabi

There are three companies providing ferry services between Koh Phi Phi and Krabi:

  • Chaokoh Travel
  • Andaman Wave Master
  • Tigerline Travel

All three services depart from the same pier in Koh Phi Phi (Ao Tonsai Pier) and arrive at the same pier near Krabi Town. The main differences between the services are that the Chaokoh Travel tickets cost 33% more than the Andaman Wave Master tickets, and that the Chaokoh Travel ferry completes the sea crossing 30 minutes quicker. Tigerline Travel, the most expensive service provider has two daily connections direct from Koh Phi Phi to Krabi Airport

Both ferry services arrive at Klong Jilard Pier which is 3.2 km away from the centre of Krabi Town. For onward transport:

  • Taxi: You can catch a shared songthaew taxi (converted pick up truck) direct to Ao Nang beach or into Krabi Town where you catch minivans, buses and songthaew to all points in Krabi and beyond.
  • Minivan: Minivan departures to Ao Nang, Surat Thani and many other destinations depart from near the Vogue Shopping Cente in the centre of Krabi Town.

Krabi Town itself has interesting morning market and seafood eateries by the river front. The most popular destinations in Krabi Province, such as the Tiger Cave Temple and Railay Beach, are located outside of Krabi Town and for this reason few visitors opt to stay in Krabi Town itself except for a single night whilst on route to and from the nearby islands.
