Any options for Bangkok to Krabi in the middle of the night?

Hi

We'll be be arriving in Bangkok airport about 11.30pm and are travelling to Krabi, however the next flight to Krabi isn't till about 6am.

Its not worth getting a hotel in Bangkok as we'd only have time to be in bed a few hours, so the alternative seems to be just hanging around the airport until 6am - unless there are any options for travelling through the night to Krabi such as train or taxi? If so how would we arrange it and how much would it be?

Thanks

Hi

There's train to Surat Thani and you will have to get the bus from Surat Thani to krabi. But arrive that late you will miss the train anyway.

By taxi or private car transfers is not going to be cheap as it is a very long way to go from Bangkok to krabi.

The vest is to hang out at the airport. Or use airport hotel for few hours.

Good luck

Hi,

A taxi/limo will cost you. The last train leaves Bangkok for Surat Thani at 22.50. You are better off waiting it out at the airport or spend a night at a nearby hotel:

If you are coming all the way from Canada you are probably going to be exhausted and will need a shower and at least a couple of hours rest, so I suggest you book into one of the airport hotels and freshen up and then grab an early morning flight the next morning as you arrive too late for night trains and buses.

I agree with the above, hotel at the airport, fly out in the morning, after the long flight you will appreciate a bed and a shower .
