How To Reach Baan Rao

How to get to Koh Lanta Yai

(timings might change and boats do not run in low season)

  • From Phuket Town to Koh Lanta by mini-bus.

  • Take the mini-bus from Phuket Town at the main bus station. To make sure you get a seat it is always better to book your ticket a little ahead. The last mini-bus from Phuket to Koh Lanta leaves around 4 pm and the drive takes you 4-5 hours. Call us before you leave so we know at what time to pick you up at the mini bus station in Koh Lanta.

  • From Phuket to Koh Lanta by boat (only in high season).

  • The boat tickets are bought from the booking officer at the passenger pier in Phuket. As there is no direct boat from Phuket to Koh Lanta, you will need to change boats on Phi Phi island. If you want to arrive on Koh Lanta the same day, you must catch the morning ferry from Phuket. Once you have paid the ticket, you will receive a sticker that says “Koh Lanta”. That will be useful when you have to change boats. Approaching Phi Phi Islands, you will either stop at the Phi Phi Island pier and change boats there or change boats at sea, just outside Phi Phi Islands. The whole trip takes about half a day and is very scenic. Call us before leaving Phuket so we know which company you are coming with and at what time we should pick you up at Koh Lanta pier.

  • From Krabi to Koh Lanta by mini-bus.

  • You can either take the mini-bus from Krabi town or jump onto the mini-bus at Krabi airport. If you want to take it from the airport, you must let us know in advance so we can book a seat for you. The drive to Koh Lanta takes you about 2-3 hours. The last mini-bus from Krabi to Koh Lanta is around 5 pm. Before you leave Krabi, call us so we know which mini-van you are on. We thereafter generally talk to the driver so he knows exactly where to drop you.

  • From Krabi to Koh Lanta by boat (only in high season).

  • There is only one boat per day going from Krabi to Koh Lanta and it leaves between 11 and 12 in the morning. You buy your boat ticket directly at the Krabi passenger pier (do NOT let the hotel book it for you !). The boat ride takes you about 2 hours. Call us before leaving Krabi so we can pick you up at Koh Lanta pier.
