GETTING TO SIBOYA
If you have pre-arranged pick-up transport from the Krabi Airport…
someone will meet you to take you to SiBoya Bungalows.
You will go by private car from the airport to Laem Hin (45 min), where you will transfer to a private long-tail ferry that will take you (15 min) across to Koh SiBoya. Here you will transfer to a truck to take you to the Bungalows (15 min).
Do you need private transport to SiBoya Bungalows?
Please email (or call) to arrange
From Ao Nang: Cost 1500 baht for 1 or 2 persons
Costs include end to end transfer
If you are in Krabi Town… go to the SiBoya Office.
Go to the SiBoya Office/Restaurant (see map just below) and tell the staff which songtaew (local bus) you want to take to SiBoya Bungalows. They leave a couple of times daily. No exact schedules so check with office. The one way cost is 100 Bt/pp (2015). The trip from Krabi Town to the Laem Hin pier will take about 1.5 hours.
From Laem Hin there is always a public walk-on long-tail ferry to take you across to Koh SiBoya. (leaves every half hour) The cost should be about 20-50 Bt/pp (2018).
If you made these arrangements with the SiBoya Office/Restaurant staff in Krabi, a truck should meet you on the other side to take you the 10Km to SiBoya Bungalows (50 Bt/pp – min 150 Bt).
If you want to find your own way to SiBoya Bungalows…
If you arrive in the area on your own (without going into Krabi) then you’ll have to flaag down a songtaew (pickup with seats that travle from Krabi Town to Laem Kruat) to Laem Kruat. From there you will transfer to a long-tail ferry which will take you to the SiBoya pier. Best to call ahead to SiBoya Bungalows for pick-up at the pier (08 1979 3344) or hitch-hike with a local… everyone one the island is very friendly just ask… Oh, and don’t forget to offer a tip!
