Just Like KRABI UBER. Because, in Krabi, we do not yet have Uber available, and probably won’t ever have it.
There are a couple of Thai people in Krabi town who can help you find a taxi when you need it – even though there are no real yellow-cab taxis in Phuket town unless someone was visiting from another place – usually Bangkok, and booked one to drive the whole way down to Krabi (a 1,000 KM drive).
We typically have tuk-tuks in Ao Nang which can be taken just about anywhere, but their fees can vary widely. There are Song-lor trucks which do a specific route all day, and you can take them, but they are not on-call like an Uber driver would be.
ONE THAI GUY WE KNOW AND TRUST COMPLETELY?

Son is the manager of a nature resort on the outskirts of Krabi Town. He and his lovely wife Joob raised two sons (now adult) in Krabi, and he has been part of the diving and resort community for over a decade now. If there is anyone who knows Krabi Town, Ao Nang, Railay, Koh Lanta, and how to get a taxi or other special transportation to go anywhere you want to go – it’s Son.
Contact Son to find you a car, truck, van, or whatever you require to go WHEREVER you want to go – just like Uber Krabi. Son is a long-time Krabi resident and he literally knows EVERYONE. He has been a good friend over the past 10 years and we trust him. You should too.
Uber is bound to reach Krabi in the next few years, or a similar service will get here first. We do have a lot of tourists who would love the convenience of calling an Uber-type service to instantly meet up and take them where they need to go.
