Topic: Krabi airport to Ao Nang


what's the easiest way for a family of 5 to get from Krabi Airport to the Ao Nang Villa in an air conditioned vehicle?

Cab rank at the airport, or pre-book?

What should it cost?

many thanks,

Re: Krabi airport to Ao Nang

For a group of 5, a large people carrier  / minivan taxi taken at the airport will cost 1000 baht to Ao Nang. Check with the hotel how much they charge, it is usually from 600 - 800 baht flat rate for 2 - 6 pax, i.e. cheaper.

For less than 4 people, a regular size airport taxi is 600 baht. Or, there is also the airport bus, which stops at several points along the main beach road, and costs 150 baht per person, departure every hour or so.

As for ease, the advantage of a pick-up is that there are no queues, no rushing to an ATM machine or exchange booth to find local money (on international flights), and the driver knows exactly where he is going; the only disadvantage is that occasionally some hotels may not remember to come and get you and you end up catching a cab anyway :-)
