    hi guys,

    me and some frens plan to spend about 5 days in the islands of phi phi and lanta, in early feb 2008 (wonder if that's a good timing?). i got a couple of questions:

    a. is it sensible to travel to phi phi from phuket, then to lanta, and back to phuket again? or it's better to end our journey at krabi instead?

    b. can anyone please suggest places for us to stay in those islands. we have a budget of about usd50-60 per nite per room. we have checked out the listing in this website, the amount of information was overwhelming (yet very useful) - we are having some difficulties in deciding which ones to pick :)

    Thank you very much!

    Hi Irman,

    a) If you've no pressing reason to return to Phuket, then heading back to Krabi makes sense as it is far closer to Ko Lanta.

    b) What kind of place are you looking for? Give me a bit more info and I'll try to make a couple of recommendations.

    hi somtam2000, thanks for your reply.

    we are looking at places close to the seaside, with air-conditioned rooms. somewhat away from the hustle and bustle of the town centre. we are not quite into the nite scenes, anyway. :)

    also, wonder if you could recommend some good companies that offer island hopping/snorkelling activities at reasonable prices.

    thank you!

    Doesanyone know if there is regular transport ( mini vans or buses ) from krabi airport to koh lanta around 6.30 pm. If not how is the best way to get there at that time.

    Don't think you can get to the islands after dark, Pamfelt. You may have to spend the night in Krabi and head out the next morning.

    Themudblood, lots of the resorts on the islands offer boat trips. They're usually pretty reasonable as long as you have a handful of people going to split the cost.
