Ao Nang is located around 20km from Krabi Town and 25km from the airport. A taxi to / from Krabi airport will take approximately 30 minutes and cost 600 Baht for a car (max 4 persons) or 1000 Baht for a minibus. There is also a (slower) airport bus service, which is charged at 150 Baht per person one way.
From Krabi Town (where most bus services from other places in Thailand will terminate), there is a local bus service, or taxi service to Ao Nang. Count 15 – 20 minutes by car, or twice as long for the bus.
There are direct passenger ferry connections to Ao Nang (Nopparat Thara Pier) from the islands of Phi Phi and Lanta, as well as Phuket and Koh Yao Noi / Yai (Lanta and Koh Yao during November to April only). Longtail taxi boats run from here to Railay and Ton Sai, up to around 11pm during high season and daytimes only in low season (unless specially chartered). Longtail boats can also be chartered year round from the beach for island-hopping excursions.
