The islands of Thailand were a must for me. What’s not to love about the warm ocean water, salt in your hair, sand between your toes and watching the sunset into the water? Maybe it isn’t for everyone but there’s no denying the beauty of some of these beaches. I knew I would be spending some time in the north of Thailand and I wanted to end my trip in the beautiful beaches of the south.
I didn’t know exactly which islands I would end up going to prior to the start of my trip but I knew the last island would be Phuket so I opted to fly into Krabi so I can work my way to Phuket. I flew from Bangkok’s Don Mueang International Airport (DMK) to the Krabi Airport (KVB), an 80-minute flight. I took the airport shuttle to my hotel in Ao Nang for 150 baht. It was about 45 minute to one-hour ride. The shuttle first stops in Krabi Town so that the passengers going to their hotels in Krabi Town can take a separate shuttle from there.
