  • The ferry is by far the most popular method of reaching the islands. Ferries take about two hours from Phuket and 90 minutes from Krabi or Koh Lanta. The top deck of the ferry doubles as a sundeck, which is great for those who want to tan. The lower decks feature air-conditioned rooms and drinks and snacks are available onboard. The ferry terminal is a one-hour drive from Phuket Airportand Krabi's is 30 minutes from Krabi Airport.

    To get good seats you should arrive well in advance in high season or half an hour before departure in low season. Sometimes the ferries can get a little crowded. Toilets are Read More...

    Speedboat to Phi Phi

    Private speedboat transfer is the next most popular way of getting to Phi Phi. Basically, it's a private charter of a speedboat so departure and drop-off points are a little more flexible and you can go right up to the front of your chosen resort which can save a lot of time.

    Again, most of the year the ride is flat but it's advisable to avoid speedboats in September and October as things can get a little bumpy.

    Obviously, speedboats are more expensive than the ferry but for larger groups they can represent excellent value as the cost of the boat hire is divided.
