Definitely very cheap way of travelling. It is however a little intimidating trying to identify the van that you are suppose to get on as there are a lot of vans that looked similar and the bus stop outside the airport is more like a pavillion. Fortunately the contact no given works and the person on the other end speaks English. Overall will still recommend it as it is definitely much more affordable.
This journey is overpriced here, it costs just 300 baht for this journey if you wait until you reach the airport and book it there. Also, we were stuck on the minivan for the entire time, because bags were blocking the door, we were stuck in a queue waiting to get on the boat for a very long time, and couldn't get out of our seat or out of the van to walk around or buy water at any stage. Even on boat, a lot of people were getting off, but we were stuck on the bus. It's a comfortable bus, but being stuck in a seat unable to move for 3 hours is pretty tedious, when we thought we would at least be able to get on and off when the minivan has stopped. There are far nicer ways to get to Lanta, get the direct ferry from Krabi, it's a lot nicer and you can walk around as you please!
