Never been before so what are my options to go by bus or train from hua hin to krabi and also approx costs and travelling time
Easy by bus, just go to the bus station on the main road, get a timetable and price and book accordingly. Never travelled there by bus but it takes me around 7 hours to drive in my car so bus probably a little longer.
Does anyone have a link to bus company or trains so I can check prices and times
Ok but what do I do when I get to Surat?
if on the bus, hopefully it's going to krabi, if not, you'll change buses at the ST station to one that is going to Krabi.
if train to Krabi, then over to the bus station for same.
any idea of the time it takes or is it easier to go back to BK and fly?
I've already told you it's about a 7 hour drive.
so you did sorry
