Travel To Krabi

To know how to get to Krabi, one must find out the details of the various means of transport. The distance from any metropolitan city of India to Krabi is approximately 3200 kilometres by air. It is much less than the land distance, which is near 5000 kilometres from the middle of the country. Krabi, along the western coast of southern Thailand, is a popular tourism destination for Indians. The exotic island beaches and water sports opportunities draw thousands of tourists every year and thus the major Indian cities are quite well-connected with Krabi Airport.  

Here are the different options one can consider when deciding how to reach Krabi from India.

By Air

Most flights from the Indian cities make one stop at Bangkok in Thailand, Singapore or Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia. From those airports, there are connecting direct flights to the Krabi International Airport which is around 15 km away from the Krabi city centre. The flight time varies depending upon the city from which or the airlines on which one is flying. The whole journey, excluding an extended gap between the two connecting flights can take around 7 hours if one is flying from Mumbai to Krabi, 7.30 hours if it is Bangalore to Krabi and 8.30 hours if the journey is Delhi to Krabi. At present, other than domestic flights from Bangkok, Chiang Mai and Koh Samui to Krabi Thailand airport, direct flights only fly from China, Qatar, Malaysia and Singapore. So from India, one can easily take a flight to any of these destinations and then a second one to Krabi. For convenience and cost-cutting purposes, as well as to see the city of Bangkok, most people fly to Don Muang or Suvarnabhumi Airport there.

By Train

There is no railway line connecting India with Krabi, if one is wondering how to reach Krabi from India via train. Setting down railway lines is physically impossible since there are at least 3 to 4 international borders that need to be crossed and the geographical formations do not allow it as well. However, if one is already in Thailand, they can avail the domestic railway line to reach Krabi in train. From the north of Thailand, the nearest train station to Krabi is Surat Thani. From south of Thailand, or if someone is travelling from Malaysia, the nearest station is Trang. There are local buses waiting outside these stations to take people to different destinations. Krabi city centre is definitely among them. It takes 1.5 hours to 2 hours to get to Krabi from the railway stations. One can avail taxis from the station as well. However, unless one is specifically interested in travelling by train, this is not the best answer to how to reach Krabi from Bangkok.

By Road

To find out how to reach Krabi via roadways, one must know the bus routes available in Thailand or have a good knowledge of GPS. If bus is the preferred mode of transport, then there are carriers available from the Southern Bus Terminal of Bangkok on Borommaratchachonnani Road or from Phuket as well. These shuttle buses travel overnight and their costs depend on the level of luxury. To drive to Krabi from India, one has to take the Friendship Road between India and Myanmar that starts from Manipur, reach Thailand via the trilateral highway and then bring one to the main junction at Klong Jilad. From there one can go straight into the town or turn right for the different outer-city beaches.
