Facilities at Klong Jilad Pier


Klong Jilad Pier has a full range of amenities. In the car park there is a separate coffee shop, and a row of 4 small cafes with seating by the main entrance to the terminal building. These 4 small cafes all sell drinks, snacks and sandwiches which they can prepare very quickly in a bag to take away and eat on the ferry if you are short on time. There are also toilets which can be access from the right hand side of the main entrance before you enter the terminal building.

Local Transport at Klong Jilad Pier


There are shared taxis operating on the route between Ao Nang and Krabi Town which stop at Klong Jilad Pier. If you are prepared to wait until one of these shared taxis turns then this is the cheapest way to and from Klong Jilad Pier.

Shared Taxis

Not all shared taxis from Krabi Town to Ao Nang stop at Klong Jilad Pier and when we asked in February 2019 they all wanted over 100 THB to make a detour via Klong Jilad, in which case if you are travelling on your own you are better off taking a motorbike taxi from Krabi Town to Klong Jilad Pier which will cost you 60 to 80 THB.

Taxi Counter

There is a taxi counter at Klong Jilad Pier which charges relatively expensive prices (Klong Jilad Pier to Krabi Town costs 400 THB, and Klong Jilad Pier to Krabi Bus Terminal costs 450 THB). Again, if you have the time you will get a better deal by waiting outside the ferry terminal for a taxi or motorbike taxi dropping passengers and agreeing a price with them for taking you to your next destination.
