Crazy price - Why ??

Recommended Posts

Why are the prices so damn high from Krabi Airport ? 

 

Half the distance and nearly treble the price compared to Bangkok Taxi ?? 

 

Or is this just typical for the Krabi Airport ?

I paid 500 baht from the city to Don Muang today and it took 30 mins with expressway.

Krabi airport to Aonang is 600 and its 30 mins

Hardly treble the price

You must have been either ripped off or stuck in traffic but that was your experience, not mine.

that was 1966... Krabi APT isn't huge, best shoot it's to walk out to Petchasari Rd. and wait at the bus stops, Songteaws are passing by very often, or take the bus from inside the airport that is 90 to Krabi TWN and 110 to AoNang Beach... Said so if you want the executive transportation to town you pay for it, Krabi it's the most expensive province in Thailand.

Is it? I was there last time some 6 years ago and back then it was a fair bit cheaper than Phuket, especially transport. If the ride from the airport really is 30 minutes then I don't see too much of problem with it being 600 Baht.

Krabi is not expensive - I lived there for 3 years - it's pot luck if you take bus or taxi - if the latter decide price before then going - no confusion Simples

There's a white bus every 30-60mins to Krabi town from airport 100bt per person. Takes 30 mins. Goes up to Chao Fa road near 7/11. They pick up from your hotel 100 baht by asking reception or walking up to hotel near 7/11 in Chao Fa road. Easy and cheap. There's another bus to Ao Nang for 150 baht. Buy all tickets at counter to right side coming out of arrivals.

I don't know how the Krabi taxis operate but comparing them to BKK taxis going to Pattaya, for example. The fares are usually artificially low because they can always arrange a return trip for 500 or more, which helps to cover their costs. They never go back empty as there's is many services waiting for taxis that need to return to BKK.

Thai taxi prices are quite cheap compared to some of our home countries; are they not?  Seems to me I took a taxi from Harrod's to Heathrow about 25 years ago, about 30 minutes as I recall, and it was more like 20 pounds than 20 dollars.
