How to Get from Khao Lak to Other Destinations
Peaceful Khao Lak with 20 km of beach resorts is ideal for family getaways. It lies along the coastline of the Andaman Sea and is surrounded by jungle-covered mountains on the opposite side. For people searching tips on transportation from there to nearby towns, we share our advice in this short article.
Taxi from Khao Lak
You’ll see taxi cars parked near popular places like hotels and cafes in the town. Generally, the resort has no metered cabs. If choosing a local taxi service, be sure to agree on a final price beforehand. A taxi trip to Patong costs from 70 euros and takes about 2 hours. Getting to Phuket will take from 55 euros and an hour. Local taxis are regular 4-wheeled cars with ordinary trunks, consider this if you have large luggage.
Transfer from Khao Lak
Unlike taxis, in case of a private transfer, one can choose a preferred car class according to a number of passengers and suitcases. Also, if you pre-book a transfer in advance, you won’t have to arrange transportation hurriedly in a foreign country. To find a suitable vehicle on Kiwitaxi website, fill in pick-up and drop-off points, and then choose one from offered transfer variants. A private transfer from here to Patong costs from 88 euros and takes 2 hours. Getting to Krabi takes 2 hours as well and 83 euros.
To make a reservation, you should specify your trip details in an order form: exact pick-up time and place, a destination, how many passengers there will be, if child seats are needed, etc. You may pay for the order fully online by card or in cash to the driver upon arrival. On the date of transfer, your driver will meet you at the pick-up place to bring you to the destination safely and fast. No extra charges, no delays or waitings, only your comfort and calmness.
Public Transport from Khao Lak
Getting from Khao Lak to Patong by public transport consists of a trip to Phuket first and one to the final destination. A bus to the same location departs approximately every 2 hours from 6 am to 5 pm daily, tickets cost 3 euros and the journey takes near 2 hours. Reaching the island by local beach bus will cost less than 1 euro and take around an hour.
A minibus is said to run from Phuket to Krabi with the travel time around 4 hours and tickets costing 6 euros, so the total trip from Khao Lak will take from 6 hours and 7 euros. Compared to taxis and transfers, traveling by public transport is cheap, but the discomfort it brings (slowness, little space, noise) grows together with time spent in a journey.
