Taxi Hua Hin to Krabi

Hi there

Has anyone taken a taxi from Hua Hin to Krabi and if so, how long did it take and would you recommend doing this or taking a taxi to Bangkok and flying in? Cost isn't a concern

Thanks

Well not a taxi but we have driven the route countless times over many years.

The journey would take around 8 hours leisurely with 2 stops on the way for restrooms, drinks / snacks

Cost will vary but you are probably looking at about THB 7,500

That is quite reasonable if you think of B 2,000 to Bangkok, 2 airfares, and then of course add trasnport from Krabi airport to your hotl / resort unless you can a very good budget airline deal in total you won't save much even if at all. You wouldn't even save any time.

So using a car service is a good way, baggage loaded in Hua Hin and taken out at your Krabi hotel. You time things to suit you, and no 'clock watching' necessary. No moving baggage one place to another, no aiport checkins, waiting around etc.

No doubt Ms Na or Mr Roong ( well used river services on the Hua Hin forum will give you a quote )

Sorry for typos - rushing !

"river services " should read Driver services

We've driven this route ourselves and although it was some years ago I can remember it was a nice drive, we stopped off along the way but as monica says it will take roughly 8 hours and Mr Roong is the man for the job.

Well with a young one getting into a car at your hotel in Hua Hin and right to your hotel in Krabi is a plus, you can stop on the way at service places for bathroom facilities, eats, snacks, coffee places, all the large ones have food, 7-11 or similar, if you don't want Thai food some even have KFC if you wish. So you can stop for a break easily.
