    Easy slow cruiser

    by travelagent4thailand Written Dec 9, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    easy crusin'

    The AO NANG PRINCESS is a medium-large sized cruiser that holds about 190 passengers to and from around KRABI to its nearby islands.

    One can hop onto this cruiser to PHI PHI, a few other stops are made along the way to railay beach, etc.

    It's slow, but nice if it's not something you want to take for a quick spin...many lay on the sun decks catching rays and veggie with the hummning of its monotonous engine....

    and very afforable - about 150 - 270 Baht / person (depending on season and destinations).

    Krabi Town to Ao Nang Beach

    by andyong Updated Nov 27, 2003

    Krabi Town

    In Krabi, somehow all forms of transportation are referred to either as buses or vans, but don't get surprised when you see the other one or something else like a tuk-tuk or car turning up.

    Buses constantly run from Krabi Town to Ao Nang beach costing 20B and the journey takes about 30 minutes. Just sit or wait somewhere along Cha Weng street and you can jump on these buses as they pass by.

    Don't get fooled into getting a taxi from the local travel agent for 350B which would end up being a van.

    Ao Tham Phra Nang

    The only way of getting to Raileh and Phra Nang is by boat. Boats can be chartered at the beach in Ao Nang from dawn till dusk, maybe even around the clock. A one way trip costs 50B per person and takes 15-20min. It's a very beautiful trip along the coast and on the way there are some wonderful beaches and dramatic limestone formations to marvel at.

    Get the Free Tourist Map of Krabi

    by DarkRay Updated Nov 6, 2003

    Map of Railay Region

    When you reach Krabi Airport, make sure that you obtain the free tourist map of Krabi from the tourist information centre which is located within the Airport itself. It will help you to familiarize yourself with the various beaches and islands in Krabi. You may even find the various advertisement on the map itself useful.

    I had bought various maps of Krabi during my stay there and honestly, I had found this free map to be much better most of the paid ones. Too bad, I only found it on my last day in Krabi. If I had this map during from my first day in Krabi, I would had never mistaken Ton Sai Beach as Railey West Beach ;-)

    However, if you want to pay for one, get the one by Frank Tour (70 / 84 baht depending on where you purchase it from - it was more expensive at the airport) as this was the best map I found. Avoid the one published by Prannok Witthaya Maps Centre. The printing on the one I have is extremely lousy (ghosting) and it is far too complicated for most people.

    Shown below is the map of the Railay region (scanned from the free map) which is the only one which after shrinking to accomodate the 560 x 500 limit for picture files, is still good enough for practical use.

    Rent a car

    We decided to rent a car one day and we just asked the in reception. After a couple of hours Budget brought a nice Honda Civic to us from the airport for 2000 baht for a day.

    Driving around Krabi was not to bad even if they drive on the “wrong” side of the road compared to what I'm used too. I guess the main point is to try to drive like the locals. At one point we were going to slow and the cars behind us very eager to get past us

    The easiest way to get around Krabi is to rent a car or motorcycle. Motorcycle rental is very cheap there, only 200baht per 24 hour. Traffic is not heavy there and road conditions are reasonably good.

    KRABI AIRPORT

    Krabi Airport opened in Novermber 1999 and is a small but efficient entrance to the province located just 15 kilometers northeast of Krabi town. I flew to Krabi by SilkAir. It is a direct flight from Singapore and it only took 1.5 hours!
    From Krabi Airport, you can get a taxi to bring you to Ao Nang. For us, airport transfer is included in the package so we got a bus that drove us to Ao Nang. It was about a 30 mins ride by bus. In Ao Nang, the best transport to see the place is walk! Ao Nang is a very small town and you can just walk to anywhere!

    As for visiting all the islands, long tails boats is your safe bets! Also, speed boats to those a little far away islands or those special diving boats where they take people out for diving!

    The only way to get around if you're staying Railay is by boat. It's impossible to get there by car, bus, taxi or bike. Fortunately, it doesn't cost too much to travel by boat but you will need cash.

    Longtail boat

    Longtail boat is the main transportation around the beaches and islands around Krabi. Longtail boat to Krabi is like yellowcab to New York City. Conveniently available when you need it.

    You can get to Krabi from Bangkok by Thai airways or Air Asia or from Singapore by Tigar airways. The airport is simple but modern and clean. International airport tax is 400 baht (Dec 06).

    longtail boats

    They are everywhere all the time. You will surely never have a problem to get a longtail boat. The noise of the engines makes a kind of backdrop to any Thai beach stay (unfortunately).

    Water taxis abound on the Ao Nang beach - whether to Rai Leh (just a few minutes away) or as far as the town of Krabi itself.

    We flew out of Krabi on 270613 with Tiger to Singapore at 1150 and the customs men were so rude. One barked at me and pounded the desk, he threw my passport at me. My partner went to the only other customs man and had a similar reception. We were the only persons going through passport control at the time as we were hours ealy. They must have been the rudest Thai's we have encountered. Officious, self absorbed little men trying to exert power in their little little, tin pot airport. The airport is run down with hardly any facilities.
