Krabi Airport to Koh Phi Phi
If you are arriving in Krabi by plane you also have the option of booking a taxi transfer and ferry ticket as a package by using the Search Box below. The taxi service costs 600 THB (in addition to the cost of the ferry ticket) and takes 25 minutes to reach Klong Jilard Pier where you catch either of the following two services:
- 10.30 ferry to Koh Phi Phi operated by Chaokoh Travel
- 13.30 ferry to Koh Phi Phi operated by Andaman Wave Master
If you are going to travel direct we advise that you allow at least 90 minutes between the time your flight is due to arrive at Krabi Airport and the time the ferry departs. This means that if you plan to take the 10.30 ferry to Koh Phi Phi your flight needs to arrive at 09.00 at the latest and if you plan to take the 13.30 ferry then your flight needs to arrive at Krabi Airport by 12.00.
Koh Phi Phi Ferry Pier
Both the Andaman Wave Master and Chaokoh Ferry services take you to the same place, which is Ton Sai Pier on Koh Phi Phi island. Ton Sai Pier is located on the short stretch of concrete road in the centre of the island.
Most of the resorts and other amenities are clustered in this area as well so it is a good arrival point. Koh Phi Phi is not a large island which is part of its charm. If you are staying in the north of the Island then you might consider taking a taxi boat there from Ao Ton Sai.
