Island Guide


Getting to the Island is by ferry departing from the following

  • Surat Thani with a day service and a night service. The day service is a 4 hour journey and the night service is a 9 hour journey.
  • Chumphon - A 1.5 to 3 hours journey
  • Koh Samui - 2.5 hours
  • Koh pha Ngan - 1 hour

All ferrys arrive Ban Mae Haad. Lomprayah offer the quickest service on the newest boats, and also have VIP lounges where passengers can watch movies in an air conditioned lounge. In contrast, Songserm is a no-frills point to point fast ferry, where most passengers disembark slightly more green in the face than when they boarded
