Buses to Krabi From Bangkok

Air-conditioned and non air-conditioned buses leave Bangkok's Southern Bus Terminal to Krabi, Hat Yai, Trang and Phuket several times daily.
Trips by air-conditioned bus from Bangkok which normally depart in the evening, take about 13 hours to Krabi, 2hrs more Trang, and 2 more hours to HatYai & PakBara.  Add another 3 or 4 to get to Penang and Langkawi in Malaysia.

Buses for Krabi leave from Bangkok’s Southern Bus terminal on Boromratch Chonnani Road. Most travel at night and cost from 626-920 baht, depending on the levels of comfort inside. Journey time is around 10 hours.

Tickets rarely have to be booked in advance, excepting around Thai public holidays, but it's always a good idea.  There is also a direct bus connection from Ko Samui (via Surat Thani, around 400 Baht); Had Yai (234 Baht); Phuket (155 Baht); Trang (129 Baht); and many other destinations, including Malaysia.

Private tour buses also operate the same routes; Contact An Agent
Note: There have been many reports of thefts on private, and especially the local buses, keep all your valuables on you at all times. They will put someone in the luggage hold and that person has hours to rummage through peoples belongings. Most times when you arrive at your destination, you don't check.  Then...Bhammm. your expensive camera is gone and you cant remember the number of the bus, let alone the company. So...travel smart!

You should also note that not all buses have toilet facilities, blankets, complimentary water and even show English movies between loud Thai Techno – please check before you travel!

Buses all arrive in Krabi Town at the main bus terminal. Government buses go to the bus terminal in Talaat Kao; private tour buses arrive in the Andaman Wave Master station slightly out of town. From both of these places it is easy to catch a local bus or taxi to the beach areas, or to the pier if you are heading to the islands. Contact An Agent For Transportation

There is no railway in Krabi, so you can’t actually get here by train! But it’s a common misconception that you can, so we feel it’s worth noting, The nearest train stations are actually in Surat Thani to the north-east and Trang to the south. From either of these stations, it is possible to continue your journey to Krabi by bus or taxi. Check out our Schedules Page

Driving To Krabi From Bangkok

The road network in Thailand is excellent and there are easy to follow highways that will bring you to Krabi from either the north, south or east. The GPS coordinates you will need are N 8.08346, E 98.895437. These will bring to you to the main junction at Klong Chilat from where you can head into Krabi Town, or turn right to head to the various beach areas. These are clearly sign posted from this junction (look out for the blue panel sign).  Larger hotels will provide off-street parking; this is especially important if staying in the beach area of Ao Nang, where parking can be difficult.
