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.

Unless there has been a recent price hike, it should be 70 baht. That is if you pay the driver.

The big White bus from the Airport to Ao Nang is 150 Baht and has been for several years.  It does drop you outside your hotel even if it’s up one of the small side Soi.

If you get the white Songteaw from the main road outside the airport then its 80 baht and they will drop you outside your hotel if it’s on their main route.

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.

People like whining.

Well, there's also the 'mini bus/van' (car too, sp?) from the airport, which I was referring to. They are/was 70baht to the city.

There used to be a songthaew to/from the airport. And the funny sidecar motos. None of these things there anymore?

There sure is, songthaews still run until around 4 or 5pm.  You have to know enough to walk out of the airport, through the taxis and what not, and stand on the street.  But it's worth it, price is  30 baht from airport to krabi town.

Comparing home country taxi prices to here isn't really a good idea.

Thinking that way is one reason some expats fork out massive over the top sums for houses here. What they pay may seem a lot less than the cost of a similar property and outlook but that doesn't stop it being massively overpriced.

Sorry, I have always compared prices between countries to determine values; it has served me well for over 50 years as an expat. Its called Purchasing Power Parity, a popular macroeconomic metric. However, you should not just compare one good or service; a basket of several goods and services provides better results.
