I am travelling to stay at the Layana Resort after spending a few days in Ao Nang in June 2012. I would like to know if anyone can recommend the best way of travelling independently from Krabi (ideally Ao Nang) but can travel from Krabi town to Ko Lanta Yai (Layana). I am spending a bit of money staying at the Layana resort and have asked them about costing from Ao Nang, which they quote at 1, 600 bht pp (there are two of us). They are willing to pick me up from Saladan Pier complimentary but say that from May - Oct no ferries run, so the easiest way to get there is by car. I am obviously trying to save a bit of money. If I can either get a mini-van from Krabi to Ko Lanta then they can pick me up, or if there are mini-vans which drop you at your resort then even better. If anyone is able to tell me the best way of getting across please let me know!
