Let me tell you how we get from Phi Phi to Bangkok...
Speed Boat from resort to main harbour (one hour) - Free
Ferry from Phi Phi to Krabi (2 hours) - 300 Baht
Songthaew to Krabi bus station (15 mins) - 40 Baht (tried to con 200 Baht out of us!)
Bus from Krabi to Surat Thani (3 hours) - 130 Baht
Songthaew from Surat Thani Bus station to Train station (1 hour) - 100 Baht
Wait for 4 hours
Train to Bangkok (Sleeper)(14 hours) - 500 Baht
Underground from Train station to Asok - 30 Baht
