    Guten Tag / สวัสดี / good day fellow travelers!

    We know there is a minibus service from Phuket town but is there one to Ko Lanta from the Phuket airport?

    We r arriving at 10:05, 9th Feb 2010 and would like to go directly to Ko Lanta without going to Phuket town.

    Or does anyone have other suggestions, except the ferries, to get there real quick and cheap?

    We emailed Lantainfo and they confirmed its 250baht to Ko Lanta from the bus terminal in Phuket town.

    Keep up the good work Travelfish, great & very informative website!

    Well, all the buses leaving Phuket use the road heading north and therefore have to pass through the northern part of the island (near the airpot).

    You could try to catch the bus as it passes through Thalang town (a short ride from the airport). If you're planning to take a minibus (which usually depart when full) you could try to arrange with a tour operator to book seats on it and arrange a pick--up point in Thalang.

    Public buses heading north you can just wave down as they pass by.

    We arrive at Phuket airport at 09:00, which I think is enough time to get us to Krabi , jump on a minibus via the ferries to Ko Lanta .
    We made a booking error and cant change our flight destination to Krabi.

    Were does the buses stop in Krabi, cause we have to take a minibus from Krabi to Ko Lanta the same day?
