Getting to Koh Phangan

Koh Phangan is about 2 1/2 hours from Surat Thani Province and 45 minutes from Koh Samui Island by boat. There are ferries between Suratthani, Samui and Phangan. You can also go by a speed-boat from Bophut pier on Samui. Buy your ticket at any travel agency. Try to book a bungalow or room in advance. There are a lot of people staying overnight so it can be difficult to get a bungalow in the early morning.

Recommended Transportation



1By Boat

By  Boat From Koh Samui : There are at least 3 ferries a day from Koh Samui's Big Buddha pier to Thongsala pier Seatran Discovery and Haad Rin Queen Ferry directly to Haad Rin. Boats also leaves from Nathon pier (Songserm Express) and Mae Nam pier Lomprayah) to Thongsala 3 times a day.

From Koh Tao : Get Songserm, Lomprayah or Seatran boats departs frequently from Mae Haad pier and arrives to Thongsala pier. Last boat from Tao to Phangan Island is 15:00.

2By Bus

By Bus From Bangkok there are government busses that go directly to the Nadan ferry pier in Surat Thani province. There are also busses to Surat Thani town that require transfers to the pier.

Busses and minibuses from Khao San Road are convenient ways to ensure that you don’t get lost finding your way from Bangkok to Koh Phangan but have a notorious reputation for having valuables “get lost” from luggage stowed beneath the bus. While convenient, these busses should be only for those who do not leave valuables in their checked luggage.


3By Plane

By Plane While there is no airport on Koh Phangan there are two options for saving a great deal of time by flying to the area. The closest airport to Koh Phangan is Koh Samui (USM), which is serviced by both Bangkok Airways and Thai Airways from Bangkok, Phuket, and various other locations, including Singapore, Chiang Mai, and Kuala Lumpur. From Koh Samui there are many options for getting boat service to Koh Phangan.

Another option is to fly to Surat Thani on the Thai mainland. Thai AirAsia offers low fare service from Bangkok to Surat Thani. From Surat Thani the transfer to the boat pier and then the journey aboard a ferry takes considerably longer than from Koh Samui, though boats are scheduled to coincide with flight arrivals and connections from the airport to the pier are easy to arrange.

4By Train

By Train There is train service from both south and north of Surat Thani, which then require a transfer by bus to the pier, from where boats will take passengers to Koh Phangan. Combined train-bus-boat tickets can be purchased at the Advance Booking Counter at Hua Lumphong station in Bangkok, although trains are not guaranteed to arrive before boats depart.
