How to Get to Railay

Starting Krabi Town, you have three options to Railay:

1) From Ao Nang to Railay by a long-tailed boat, about 15 minutes; 50-80 Bht/persons, with 8-10 persons is max capacity/boat, this destination is the most popular is due to less time, and shorter distance.  In case you are Krabi Town, you can take a mini-bus to Ao Nang about 20 minutes.  At Ao Nang beach, you can find a boat easily.

2) From Krabi Town to Chaofah Pier by a long-tailed boat, about 45 minutes, 80-100 Bht/persons.  Longer distance/time, but more convenience if you are at Krabi Town.  During rainy season, this route is not suite for travelers.

3) From Ao Nammao near Shell Fossil, also by a long-tailed boat, about 30 minutes.  It is shorter for travelers to Railay East.  This is alternative route during rainy season.
