I'll be travelling to Thailand for the first time next week and going to stay at Ko Phi Phi for a few days. Thinking to book a ferry from Krabi but not sure which to choose. I'll be arriving to Krabi airport at 11:50 on Friday so there are only two options: 13:30 (Andaman Wave Master) and 16:00 (Chao Koh Group). So several questions:
1. How long does it take to clear all procedures at the airport in high season and how long does taxi to Klong Jilad pier go? Is it probable to make it on 13:30 boat from arrival at 11:50?
2. How much approximately does a taxi ride cost?
3. Which of two companies has better vessels?
I guess 16:00 is the safe option but still would like to know other opinions. Thanks!
