Krabi International Airport, is the airport serving Krabi, Thailand. It is located about 7 kilometres east of the city center
From Krabi Airport, we normally take airport taxi to Ao Nang. The cost is 600B fixed. The journey is 30K, around 20 min drive.
Krabi Airport offers a regular bus service (white buses as you exit the aiport's terminal to the right but you purchase the ticket at the offices after baggage claim), charging 150bahts/person to get to Ao Nang and 90bahts for Krabi-town which they drop off first before continuing on to Ao Nang. It takes about 20 minutes to get from the airport to Krabi-town and another 20 minutes to one end of Ao Nang and they drop off at various points. The ticket seller or bus driver will also ask you when you buy the bus ticket where you want to get dropped off so they'll know which resorts to 'drop' passengers off at. If it's more than 3 travelers, then it's more practical to just share the taxi all the way from the airport into Ao Nang since it'll be much faster.

We took a White Songthaew to Krabi Town. It costs only 60 Baht per person as opposed to a taxi charge of about 400 Baht per trip. It was a good 30 minutes ride and a 10 minutes’ walk and we finally found Chao Fah pier Night Market. Time checked, 8.00pm.
Not far from Krabi Town. Wat Tham Suea Caves famous for complexes of interesting temple inside lovely scenery and comfortable.
The Tiger Cave Temple is 1,237 Steps to the Top. Being an unfit person I cannot say I looked at this with a sense of excitement. The first 100 or so steps felt relatively easy but then the steps start to vary in steepness and I started to question my ability. Whatever you do, don't give up because it is totally worth it. It took me about 30 minutes to climb and you need a good amount of water . The view from the top is spectacular and I enjoyed watching the sunset. The walk down was immeasurably easier although I recommend wearing trainers rather than flip flops and sandals.
it is possible to stop off here on the way to or from the hot springs.
A 20 baht donation is requested to enter the cave.
Please remember when visiting any temple to respect certain rules of conduct: cover your shoulders and knees (both men and women); always remove your shoes before entering any shrine; and never touch the monks or nuns. It is also polite to ask before taking pictures of them.
