If you want to travel from Bangkok to Koh Lanta there are many different options. Here’s a quick rundown of the fastest and the cheapest ways to get from Bangkok to Koh Lanta.
Fastest Way from Bangkok To Koh Lanta
The fastest way is to fly from Bangkok to Krabi Airport which takes 70 minutes and then take an Express Transfer which combines a air con minivan ride from Krabi Airport to the coast and then a 15 minute speedboat ride to Koh Lanta. This lets you bypass the two car ferries which are the only way for vehicles to get onto Koh Lanta.
If you prefer you can book a Private Minivan Transfer from Krabi Airport which is slower but cheaper than the Express Transfer and a great choice if you are travelling with family and friends and want a value option. Up to six people can go in the minivan and you do not have to share with anyone else, so there’s no waiting around at the airport to collect other passengers.
You can also get a public minivan from Krabi Airport to Koh Lanta – these tend to be very crowded with little room for your luggage. There is also a ferry from Krabi to Koh Lanta – you’ll need to head into Krabi Town from Krabi Airport and then get the ferry from there.
Cheapest Way from Bangkok To Koh Lanta
A cheaper option to get from Bangkok to Koh Lanta is to take the overnight bus. These can be taken from a few different areas in Bangkok like Khao San Road and takes 12 hours to Krabi. From Krabi you may take the public minivan or ferry. It’s also possible to get the bus to Phuket and take a ferry from Phuket to Koh Lanta.
