There are several ways you can complete a trip from Krabi to Bangkok, today we’ll show you how to do it by bus.
Options: There are 2 kinds of buses, the normal 45 seater and the VIP that seats 26 people.
VIP buses are basically the same price as a flight to Bkk if you buy in advance. Yet, to and from the airport you’ll probably add up the costs with taxi fees, where to and from the bus terminals public transportation can be used. The VIP is also a great choice for those who want to avoid flights or enjoy the scenery a bus ride brings.
Where To Buy It: The normal buses can be bought all around Ao Nang, Railay and Krabi Town but the VIP can only be purchased at the Krabi Bus Terminal or at the company app (Thai language only, helps is needed) and paid at 7Elevens.
Prices: VIP buses cost 862 baht per person and the 45 seater will vary in price depending on where you buy it but will go around 600 baht.
Time and comfort: The ride takes about 12 hours and is pretty comfortable done with the VIP which offers free meals, water, snacks, A.C., blankets, and reclinable spacious seats. We never tried doing it with the 45 seater so we can’t guaranty the level of comfort they offer, they might take a bit longer to complete the trip as well.
It was an easy and painless trip and we would do it again.
