The easiest way by far to get to Ko Lanta, is to arrive
in Trang, either by plane or by train.
There are several overnight trains with comfortable sleepers
arriving at the Trang railway station before noon.
Just across the street from the station is K.K.Travel, which have
minibuses going straight to the island several times a day, the last trip
leaving around 3 pm
From Krabi there are two ways to get to the island : by
minibus or express boat.
There are minibuses leaving several times daily , the last one around 4
pm, and any travel office in Krabi town will arrange one for you.
The twice-daily express ferry leaves from the main pier in Krabi town, but
travels only in the season from Nov. till April Boats leave 10.00 am and
From Phuket catch any bus heading south to
Krabi, Trang or
Hatyai at the central bus station in Phuket town. Then get off in Krabi and
continue by minibus or express ferry.
Alternatively you can get off about 50 km south of Krabi in a place called
"Huay Nam Khao". From there take the turn-off to "Ban Hua Hin",
where the car ferries to Lanta island leave from.
