    Hi there.

    I'm currently on Ko Tao and will be looking to move across to Krabi in the next few days. I need to be out of Thailand by 23 May and am planning to head to Langkawi or Penang (first stop). Do you have any advice on the routes available from Krabi (or anywhere more appropriate - possibly a train?) to either Langkawi or Penang. Also I know I don't need a visa but will be granted (hopefully) a 3 month stay, where would the boarder crossings take place? Thanks in advance! Ana :)

    Hi Ana,

    From Krabi you could head south by bus to Trang and Satun and from the pier near Satun you can get a ferry to Langkawi (four boats a day I believe).

    Then from Langkawi there is a ferry onwards to Penang.

    Depending on your nationality, you should get 3 months in Malaysia on arrival.
