So I went to Krabi this weekend and wanted to see if I could do it on a budget. I never usually do this, but I had an #AirBNB voucher (link in comments), which covered my accommodation, so I figured I'd see what I could do. Here's what I spent:
Bus from Phuket to Krabi - ฿110
Hotel for 2 nights - ฿35 (after AirBNB voucher)
Taxi (songtaew) in Krabi X4 - ฿240
Boat to/from Railay Beach - ฿200
Bus from Krabi to Phuket - ฿140
Total trip cost - ฿725 (£16/$21/€18)
I spent about ฿700 on food and drink over the 3 days. So in total it came to ฿1400 (£31/$41/€35) for a 3 day/2 night trip.
I didn't have a boring trip either. I ate local food, went to the market and watched a band, went over to Railay Beach for the day and explored the cliffs and chilled on the beautiful beach and swam in the sea.
I'd say that was a pretty good deal! I'd like to hear everyone else's #cheaptravel trips and tips in the comments below.
