How to get from Phuket to Krabi
Boats to Krabi leave from Rassada Pier in Phuket. The journey takes 4 hours and is a lot more comfortable than the long road journey. Rassada Pier is nearly 3 km from Phuket Town. It is too far to walk from the bus station and therefore you need to hire a taxi or tuk tuk, or take shared taxi. Rassada Pier is one of several piers in the same area. Make sure you explain to the driver which one you want and that your final destination is Krabi.
