Tiger Cave Temple Krabi

Langkawi to Satun Ferry and onto Krabi town

The taxi collected us at 07:30 to take us to the Jetty ticket booth which takes around 30 minutes where we handed in the receipt to the desk out front to get our ferry ticket to Satun departing at 09:00am. At Kuah Jetty, there are a few restaurants and coffee shops reasonably priced, and places to purchase the all important water and snacks for the journey. Continue reading
