From Krabi to Koh Lanta by minibus

I read lot of articles about this topic, I asked lot of Thai people and I found out that, the cheapest and best way to get to Koh Lanta is by minibus. Duration of transport depends on driver abilities. We get to our hotel from Krabi bus station in 2hours.

How much it cost?

The transport by minibus from Krabi town to Koh Lanta cost 250THB. You have also option to go by ferry or speedboat, but it cost much more. For example ferry cost around 400THB. So I think if you don’t want to take ferry and see little bit of Phi Phi Island you can easily safe 150THB. You can see little bit of Phi Phi Island because ferry also stop on Phi Phi Island.
