Krabi Klong Jilard Pier to Phi Phi Island Tonsai Bay Pier

Hi everyone :)

Husband and I booked a flight and hotel to Koh Phi Phi Island on March 14-16 of 2014. Our arrival date and time at Krabi International Airport will be March 14, 2014 at 7:30 am.

Is there any way that we can reach Klong Jilad Pier at Krabi just before the 9:00 am ferry trip to Koh Phi Phi Island's Tonsai Bay pier?

Any suggestions and recommendations will highly be appreciated as we would want to maximize our very short stay on the island.

Thanks heaps!

It shouldn't be a problem. Krabi airport is very quick, you'll be out with your luggage before 8 a.m., take a taxi and your at the pier in less than 30 minutes.

One more question though, is it necessary that my husband and i pre-book a ferry ticket from Klong Jilad to Tonsai Bay Pier? We are being offered land transfer and ferry transfer for 2500 baht by a transport service in Krabi named Krabi Spesialisten. Is this fair enough price or should we just go the normal way of taking the taxi to the pier and buying ferry tickets from there.

Thanks!

This is well overpriced. A taxi to Klong Jilard is THB 500/vehicle and the ferry fare is THB 440/Pax. You can also go to the Nopparathara pier. The ferry will leave at 09:30 h a.m., taxi is THB 600 and the ferry fare THB 450/pax.

You can take the airport shuttle to Hat Nopparathara pier for 150 Baht/Pax. But you have to walk the last 300 m to the pier. The shuttle will not enter the parking area. Don't do it when you're in time constraint. The shuttle makes many stops on it's way.

So glad I came across this post! I'm doing the same flight times, but a couple days after you. I'm not pre-booking my ferry ticket. As far as I know, you can buy tickets when you arrive at the ferry port.

Enjoy your trip! :o)

Hi guys, planning to fly from Bangkok to Krabi in order to get to phi phi. We're using NokAir, but the fly and ride cost seems quite high based on the above rates you've mentioned. I guess taking a taxi then booking the ferry from the pier would work. Have the prices changed off late? We're planning to go on 16th December. Thanks in advance.
