We will be in Phuket late October and are thinking of taking a day trip to Krabi. Have heard that speed boat is the quickest, but there are a few of us, me included who are not keen on this option. I know you can go by road but takes about two and half hours, while this is not a problem as we woul get to see more of the countryside. My question is do we hire a car and drive ourselves and hope we do not get lost, or hire a taxi/mini van (as there is 5 of us) Also is it safe in Krabi. Sorry if that sounds like a stupid qestion but rather be safe than sorry.
Any info would be great. Thanks
