BY LAND

Krabi Sunset Cruises picks up guests for the trip from meeting points in both Ao Nang and Railay and will drop you back to both after the trip. We will send you meeting point information and further details once you confirm your booking.

Below is some handy transport information for those of you that would like to stay in Railay.
  • Railay is located approximately 2 hours from Phuket Airport, or about 50 minutes from Krabi Town. Resorts at Railay organize transfers from both airports, and it is the easiest way (especially in low season) of getting here.
  • If you come on your own there are three access points on the mainland where you can catch a long-tail boat across to east or west Railay.

Krabi Airport has just been renovated and is becoming a little international hub with flights coming in daily from KL and Singapore. Several flights daily to and from Bangkok on Thai Smile (Airways) and Air Asia. An airport bus leaves after every flight that comes in. If you tell the operators that you are going to Railay they usually drop you at a point in Ao Nang and organize a long-tail boat for you.

The airport bus usually takes about 45 minutes and the long-tail about 10 minutes.

If you are in Krabi Town, simply head to Chao Fa pier. They have long-tail boats regularly through high season and not so regularly in low, however if there are 8 people they will take you – or pay the equivalent of 8.

  • If you arrive just before or after dark it is still possible to get to Railay. Some boat drivers will suggest that you can’t get here and then take you to a guest house in town.
    • If there is definitely no boat from Krabi Town just hop in a taxi or sawng tail to AoNa Mao or Ao Nang and then a boat.

      Ao Na Mao pier is a pier that is located 10 minutes from Ao Nang and is used a lot in low season as the seas a calmer on this side.

      Ao Nang has several launch points to Railay however the main one is opposite Movenpick on Ao Nang’s main beach. Service is constant through high season. In low season you may wait a while and depending on the seas – you may need to head to another pier near Noppatara Beach.

    Great day of sightseeing” Snorkeling, sunbathing, boat jumping and enjoying drinks on the deck were the plan for the day. It was too overcast to see the sunset, but it didn’t matter as we so enjoyed our day…. Read More

    Visited the four islands snorkeling, perfectly safe if your mindful of their safety instructions. Was exhausted but would do it again if I visit Krabi again.
