You can get a taxi /car, more comfortable than mini-vans, unless on a very very tight budget I would avoid the bus, remember that a taxi/car will take you straight from your Krabi hotel to your Phuket hotel, so that means stress free and easy.

Seats on Mini vans available but when they are packed full not at all comfortable, I would splash on your own taxi car and enjoy.

Hi,

You would be looking to pay 2500baht - no more than this. There are plenty of taxis advertising along the beach road.

Hi Glampuss,

The journey should take about 2 hours. We went with Sam and it took just over 4 hours, he drives very slow. We did stop for about 15 minutes just for a coffee.
