11 - Phiphi - Take a one day trip to phiphia and return back to phuket for night stay [too hectic and does not do justice]

12 - Krabi - Take a one day trip to Krabi and return back to phuket for night stay[u spent whole day in ferry. not at all advice able]

13 - Phuket - Phuket local sightseeing - catch flight to India
My suggestion

8 - India to Bangkok to Krabi (explore the local beaches)
9 - day trip to islands ( must do in Krabi )
10 - morning ferry to Phi Phi and afternoon leisure and night on beach for fun
11 - Phi Phi exploration
12 - Phuket one night and shopping and food
13 - fly home

Your itinerary is touch and go everywhere and does not do justice. read our trip report and pictures here.
Keep Travelling and Exploring

Crazy itinerary. All you are doing is ticking boxes and would be far better off dropping Pattaya and Krabi for another time so you can enjoy your trip. If you insist on including one of the two then make in Pattaya and then fly from there - local airport is called Utapao - straight to Phuket instead of heading back to Bangkok.

Enjoy Thailand.

As others have said before - fuggetaboutit

Pattaya

Are you on a package tour ? Stick to BKK, or just go to Phuket !

Just dump Krabi too. Krabi town proper, is rather far from the beach ! You want beach, then go to Ao Nang, which is by the beach.

Drop Pattaya. Spend three days in Bangkok and three in Phuket.

If you have "The Beach" on your itinerary, be aware that it is closed in June because it is undergoing a big clean-up operation :

What's wrong with showers? They clean the air and seldom last more than 20 minutes that time of year so book away. In any tropical country you can get rain at any time but May will not be rainy season so nothing to fear.

Enjoy Thailand.

For a day trip: Phiphi, yes ! Krabi - No.

Krabi is a region/province, Krabi is a district, Krabi is a city. Krabi is an airport ! Mostly people want to stay in Mu5, which is where Ao Nang falls into. Phi Phi island is a day tripable from Phuket !
