About 2,000 tourists moved to the mainland on Friday from Krabi's Phi Phi Island to escape tropical storm Pabuk.

Some were Phuket tourists who were unable to return to the island due to the ban on boats leaving the port.

Ao Nang Tourist Police said many tourists from Phi Phi Island have been arriving at a pier in Krabi City as piers in Phuket have been closed since Thursday afternoon.

Some of them are unable to return to Phuket at this stage.

About 2,000 tourists crowded the pier as there are not enough taxis or passenger vehicles to transport them.

Tourists are being assisted by officials to sort out their travel plans and accommodation.
